    Default Wife has ordered me to thin out the collection

    Apparently my bicycle collection is not allowed to exceed double digits. Accordingly, I offer for sale the following:

    Late '80s Cannondale Criterium series, 25" frame.Click image for larger version.

    I picked this up from Phoenix Bike, but it is a little too big for me. I don't know whether this oversized Aluminum frame is 2.8 or 3.0, but the fork is steel. 2x7 gearing with Cyclone derailleurs and friction shifting on the downtube (as God intended). The 700 C wheels are mismatched. Asking $350.

    1978 Raleigh SuperCourse, 25" frame. Click image for larger version.

    This one is also a bit too big. The frame is Reynolds 531 and the components are all branded Raleigh, from the Weimann centerpull brakes, the Suntour VGT derailleur, and the Suntour friction barend shifters. 2x7 gearing and mismatched 700 C wheels. Asking $300.

    Mid '90s Marin Limited Edition, 22" frame. Click image for larger version.

    This one is a bit too small. This aluminum framed bicycle features RX100 components throughout. 2x7 gearing with indexed shifters on the downtube and wheel with Wolbur rims that match! Asking $250.

    Late 80's Bianchi Mountain Bike, with what would be the equivalent of a 23" frame on a road bike. Click image for larger version.

    This one I am selling for a former tenant. The frame is steel. The color is Celeste. It has Deore LX components and a U-brake in back Asking $125.

    99 bikes max ? Such a bummer. I'm thinking thats the sort of thing that "The Taming of the Shrew" grew from.

    That Raleigh looks like it has a bent fork... could just be the picture though.

    It's an optical illusion.
