These never fail to look completely awesome. ...the white pedals are a bit flippant but yeah, hah, its cool though. Thanks for sharin!

hah thanks, i love the look

hah thanks, i love the look of them too. got some new blood red look pedals for it and an fizik arione. i'll post some new pics once i get around to it.

On my to-do list.


I really want one of these, or else a metallic blue Crit or Road from the late 80's early 90's. There was one of these on CL a few weeks back in Salem but I didn't get a chance to check it out before it was gone.

Out of curiosity, what size is this? I'm 5'9" and trying to figure out about where I stand while perusing CL ads.

Black Lightning

I have one of these and I love it. Two photos, one as I bought it and one as a TT bike. The short wheelbase lends itself to TT.
Love it.



go for it

so far i love it. if you get the chance and find one, jump on it. i was just randomly checking seattle craigslist and it was the first one on the page, so i got really lucky. its a 56cm, and i'm about 6' and it fits perfect. it looks a little smaller than it actually is because the geometry is so tight. so maybe try for a 54cm? hope you find one dude...they're fun.


Yeah, I've expanded my searches as far as Eugene and Seattle, but that's as far as I'm probably willing to go at this point. I'm trying to think if I missed this one while looking the past couple months. Sounds like it would be a bit big anyways, thanks for the input. Enjoy.
