Oooh, look what just popped up down in Tempe. NOS Circuit for $750. +150 shipped.

Needs a bigger reflector though :)

Maybe if it were $500 and <100 to ship. But that's definitely better than the ones asking $800 and $1200.

EDIT: BTW, before I bought mine I looked at a listing on FB Marketplace for one up near Sacramento, for only $150. I looked at the pictures, and thought, "I didn't realize Schwinn made those in pink." then I realized it was all sun-bleached paint. That made the more expensive one a lot more palatable, especially since it was only 40 minutes away.

Those bikes look like they haven't ever been ridden. The Paramount is hot except for the hideous bar tape.

Not too thrilled with the blue cable housing, either, TBH. But bar tape and cable housing are the first to go, along with cables, and possibly tires.

IF it were cheaper, if it were here, and if I didn't already have the Centurion with pretty much the same generation of 600, MAYBE. But it's not tickling anything, apart from the "Oh, that's pretty!"

Where are you seeing these? I looked on Phoenix Craigs List and didn't see anything.

Reminds me--I've forgotten to look at mine. Oops.

I actually thought about editing to include the blue cable but then I tried to think of a way to make it look good, like maybe with a blue saddle and/or blue tape.

I'm unimaginative. Cable housing is either black (Campy) or gray (Shimano) unless you're running Sante, then white is acceptable. Bar tape is black, unless the bike is red and you have a white saddle, then it's white. Or if it's a Bianchi, Celeste. Makes things simple.

Had an enjoyable long weekend. Hiking, hot pools and a birthday dessert party.

https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...fb6344a71.jpeg
Lots of stream crossings
https://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...c19a9b97e.jpeg
A bit frosty the first morning
https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...e211e170a.jpeg
Party time
https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...40f8a3b3a.jpeg
The hot pools. I spared you a photo of me in them.

Craigslist? Only barbarians buy bikes on CL! :)
Hmm, he has a white Turbo on it in this ad. The indoor photos posting has the worst saddle ever on it.

I guess I'm a barbarian, then!

He seems to have FOUR listings for TWO Circuits. Three are for the same '88Circuit, with white saddle, tape, and lever hoods. The other is for an '89, with black Rolls saddle, black tape, and gray lever hoods.

Mine's an '89, which to my mind is the more preferable - People think of Sante as white, but it's not. Some parts are white, others are shades of gray. So, I like the black better.

Well me too, I've bought and sold on CL in the past year :)
He's got a ridiculous array of Schwinns and a couple of Raleighs for sale. He posts a lot of them at least twice - once on Stevebay and once or twice on the Marketplace at large.

I wish his Peloton Pro was smaller. I love 853 frames

1. It's not my account.

2. What does FB have to do with buying Schwinns?

Mom goes in for her hip replacement today. Wish this trip were more of a vacation. Spent night at the hospital-adjacent Marriott sleeping poorly because we are on rather different schedules and now at the Starbucks which finally opened.

I wish her good luck. Most hip patients do really well if they are generally healthy to begin with.

I hope her operation goes well!

The Starbucks by my work had their lobby closed for most of this year. That drove me crazy because I hate drive-throughs, even when I'm just grabbing a coffee and a pastry and taking them right to work..
