Lovely bike, but I have no idea what it is. I'll say this: It deserves better tires. Gatorskins are pretty good at preventing flats, but they're not good at providing a nice ride.

IMO, "breaking in" a Brooks is sort of a myth. Yes, they do change over time, but if you can't set it up in a way that you are comfortable right away, it will probably never be comfortable. They are...

Yeah, this kind of thing happens when the government intentionally tries to sabotage an essential service so they can have an excuse to privatize it. They've been chipping away at USPS since at least...

I am always mystified that people have so many problems with craigslist.

See a scam? Flag and move on. No big deal.

I would buy basically any non-destroyed cro-mo frame for $25, rattle canned or not. I think that was a sweet deal, and since you don't have to worry about messing up the original paint, you can...

Glad it went to a good home and got some good use! Yes, it was a great bike, I was often sorry I sold it.

I periodically look around for a "new" vintage Trek for myself. One of these days I'll...

That looks surprisingly good to me with the modern parts! Nice job. I would consider also switching to a black stem to match the seatpost.

You don't know what you're doing. You've deluded yourself somehow that these bikes are worth a lot. They aren't. People here with...

Looks like a pretty nice bike in good shape. Price might be high, but I don't think it's crazy. I'd see if I could get it for $500.

IMO the perfect saddle for that bike is black or dark brown. The one you have on there now looks great. A red saddle would be kind of matchy-matchy corny looking. But--it's not my bike!

I usually level the saddle, then tilt it up the smallest amount I can. Then after riding I adjust as needed. Leather saddles almost always end up with the nose up a bit. Other saddles are usually...

It's a nice frame, but it's not like it's in perfect condition, and the parts are a mixed bag. Personally I think $500-$600 is more realistic.
