saw this on ebay and something tells me that his "recent overhaul" of what looks like a very nice bike may not have been as thorough as it should have.

that he/she didn't spot the glaring fault before taking pics and listing it is incredible. if they did then they have just pissed their listing fee away.....

He really misses his old BioPace chainrings! nmbiknben

great find... it's enough to have the cranks in the wrong positions, but to do it right you need them to be different sizes too... very funny
maybe his legs are out of phase nmDougSloan

the set up on my bike looks just like that. really.

.i had no idea that companies made bikes specifically for the special olympics.....but that would explain a lot of things.

it is a nice bike though. I was going to say the guys on the Vintage board would be all over it, but then I saw the author!!!

At least it is an easy fix though!
it's a fixer-upper?!?!? (nm)SantaCruz
