If you're near Wilberforce in NSW on Saturday morning there's a bloke offloading 30 or so old bikes, inc Kenevans, Europa, Malvern Star, Speedwell.

I'm after a 56cm square Columbus track frame if there's one there ;)

I have 3 bikes listing on Ebay starting tomorrow night, a 55cm GEFSCO, a 53cm BUNDY and a 56cm VETTA. All early 90s road bikes.
I will put the links up here when the listings start.
No smart comments please :)

What brakes?

They look like they'd bend under the stresses this thing would subject them to.
I don't care if it's a $20 Huffy or a $20k Colnago, if you're riding it, and you're happy, it's a good bike.

There are some states where it would be legal if it was making less than 250W, but absolutely not, no way.

Interesting "Drillium" head lugs on the GEFSCO!

Never heard of a Vetta but it looks very nice too.

Would be interested if I were shorter.

Tandem frame being sold by somebody who doesn't know the word "tandem", so may be missed by people who are searching for one:

I have a copy of the Tom Simpson book and of course I think its a great read.
The TI Panasonic and Merckx bikes are very nice but a bit too pricey.
The bargain here is the Raleigh TI team bike which looks well equipped and its a rreal one I would say worth more than the current bid by half.

This ergo trainer is listed by my mate. Young DD has one the same, and they are brilliant. Better than a fluid /mag trainer by MILES.
Great feel, you can ride them for hours.

Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

How much noise does it make compared to a fluid trainer? I have a Jet Black one and while it does the job fine it is far too noisy for me to use it in the apartment where i currently reside.

They are probably noisier than a fluid trainer because you have the fan blades, 2 chains, derailleur ...yeah not for apartment dwellers. They are very heavy too.

"The bargain here is …. by half."

Per the thread title "yaBaelf prices on the rise, good time to sell old junk?"
=>> This thread has been more about the wonders of the internet, and what others find interesting.....not so much "Post the latest Bargain Here"

Would suggest that while the Raleigh-Team-TI is well priced at present, the Speedwell-Titalite has the "unusual factor" all be it xxxy$
