hey araw let me know what you think of this one

http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/bik/2195137763.html


take a look at it and check out the components and see if it fits you well. 280 doesn't seem too bad, my brother flips all his cannondales for around 300/350

Is this a good deal or am I better off piecing a bike myself?

Looks quite good for just short commutes, it looks like hell, but it isn't half bad

You are getting ripped off. Do not spend $800 on that. Not worth it. Look for something better.

currently running 46/16 x 165mm on my kilo tt without brakes. thinking about switching to 46/15? or 47/15

i want to be able to go quicker with a somewhat easy start... and to be able to keep the pace a little easier (im in oc, and it goes from flat to lots of hills to flat and back to hills)

what do you guys recommend?

just personal taste, but it actually is a pretty nice frame, it would have been nice to see it built up with some classic road parts instead of just another conversion. That's just my 2 cents though, as long as your riding all is well.

you need the lower the stem, raise the seat and change the pedal straps to some REAL vintage ones

if i wanted standard cages + straps, i'd have put them on. for me, platform pedals + velcro straps are more comfortable, feel more secure, and are easier to get my feet into.

i dont get how no matter what part im trying to buy there is NO PRICE point for anything.. Ill see some bars for 120 on like 3 sites than ill find a site for 80 then 60.

The stem I want is listed on probikekit as 120+ for the black one and like 60$ for the SAME stem in silver like what the fuck?

I'm still seeing like 10+ online stores selling the vigorelli 899$ even though sites selling them for less than 700 are not sold out.

Theres a crazy number of sites selling the campy record crank for 400+ when its crazy easy to find it for less than 300 by searching on google.

are these expensive stores selling anything or what does anyone know whats the cause of the huge differences in prices (sometimes 2-3x more expensive on some sites than others)
