Let me know, I'm happy enough to work with you on this. I'll only be after the parts, the frame I'd probably give to my mechanic.


Hey thanks :) I'll investigate further and drop you a PM.

That is a ripsnorting audax bike, early 80s Zeus bling, and so clean. Carry a front bag with that fork trail and add mudguards to boot and climb like a zephyr. If he was shipping I'd never have mentioned it here :D

Though if someone in Brisbane was happy to collect and send south to moi (for appropriate recompense including any future favours I might be able to provide re translocation of bike bits from the greater Sydney area), I'd be loading my sniper tool, putting the roubaix at the back of the shed, ordering a decaleur and rolling out the welcome mat!


good luck with it dude. is it me or has the seller squeezed the cinelli bars into a 25.4 stem..??

No worries Grant, if you can wait, I'll be driving down to Sydney somewhere between the 4th & 15th of Feb, I should be able to transport it down there for you. If we can't meet up I can leave it at my Dad's place in Mt Druitt & you could collect it from there.

Cheers Wal,

I asked a few questions of the seller, but so far have not had a response, so will see how it plays out.

cheers

Yeah. But give 'em a good wipe first. Either that or upgrade your computer screen.

Or maybe put a router through the bar clamp to open it up to 26.0 or 26.4? I've done this myself a couple of times.
From the zig-zag marks it looks like he should have taken a bit more out :)

Cheers for link, I'm making enquiries. Always wanted a lo-pro, bit out of my price bracket though.

Stow that sniper tool, i've found the ad for this particular bike before looking at this thread and passed the details on to a mate that is looking to get back onto a roadbike after a 20 year hiatus (he's been trundling along on a heavy steel dualie mtb while his kids have been growing up for the last 10 years) who is keen to get out to do some big road rides with me on something halfway decent. He's finding that riding 50+km on a clunky 17kg mtb with dirt tyres is a little exhausting...

No stress (I don't use a snipe program, I actually sit there & bid then watch the auction until it finishes), I was only going after it because I had a sudden urge to begin yet another different project, but with the arrival of the Razesa frame & the purchase of a Benotto 2500 frame from the UK, not sure that I really want to do the project I was thinking about.

Is this allegation correct HLC? Are these your wheels?

This is just silly. This thread is full of ebay listings where people think there is good buying to be had. All of these also do not conform to the original focus of this thread.

Daacha, the point is that he's linked to his own eBay ad.

From the first post in this thread. HLC could have stated that they are his wheels, but I still don't see what the big problem is.

It's not allowed in the marketplace thread - why would it be any different here?

Correct.

No response... might have to go HK...
