      I bought this bike last summer on a whim but it's too small for me, curse my awkward body proportions. It's been sitting in my apartment since then and while it's real pretty to look at, it's even better to ride, so I figure now that spring is here, maybe I should let it back into the world. "My loss is your gain!"

      The mid 1980's Rodriguez frame is steel (Reynolds 631), painted a truly glorious light metallic blue, and it is in about as perfect condition as you can get from a 30 year old frame (lookit them decals), and it was made by hand, in Seattle, by Rodriguez bikes. I didn't know much about Rodriguez until I bought this bike, and now that I know more, it kills me that it's too small for me. http://www.rodcycle.com/ Go read about how amazing these people/bikes are.

      I think this bike would comfortably fit someone around 5'9-5'11".

      I bought it from it's second owner who had taken the time to build it out with a ton of great components:
      Campagnolo Veloce 9 speed drive train, hubs, brifters
      Campagnolo Centaur triple crankset (52/42/30, for the hills!)
      Campagnolo pedals
      Cinelli stem (vintage, I think)
      Cinelli Nerve handlebars
      FIR Net 97 rims
      Continental Ultra Gatorskin tires (I'll include a presta valve adapter)
      Campagnolo Chorus seat post (the older model, titanium I believe)
      Selle Italia PROlink saddle
      Elite Ciussi Inox water bottle cage

      As a bonus, I'll throw in a pair of Shimano clip pedals and size 11 Specialized bike shoes (good condition, not stinky), if you'd like.

      I lowered the price! Now asking $1100obo, serious inquiries and cash only. Email me and we'll exchange numbers that way. I'm on Capitol Hill by Bauhaus Coffee, without a car, so plan on coming out here to take a look.

      If this ad is up, the bike is still for sale. I'm looking for a fast sell, so the first reasonable offer rides it home!
