    Default FS: 55 Marcelo, De Rosa track, Coopers

    DSC01200.jpgDSC02358.jpg
    Marcelo as pictured less wheels: 2200
    De Rosa track frame with new headset and bb: 2000
    Ron Cooper: ELOS road frame, Henry James lugs throughout: 900
    Cooper touring frame with Blackburn racks new paint: 600
    one other that I bought on Ebay because I'd never seen one like it: 150 ( has a slight dent in TT)

    I haven't been able to load pictures recently. Will sort this out. Would prefer that these were picked up so that they can be seen before purchase.

    PM for specifics if interested.

    I will load pictures of the Coopers tomorrow if I am able. I've been having some trouble getting photos to upload. The Touring frame is 56 square. I bought it from Tony Tom at A Bicycle Odyssey in 1977. It was painted an awful putty color, Imron. Had it repainted Green metallic. The ELOS Ron built for me in 1996, I think. It's 54x55. I will double-check this. British Racing Green, but I was planning to repaint. Paint is chipped on seat tube. Frame is perfect, as is the touring frame. All the frames have Ron's signature seat cluster. ELOS is 130 rear. It's very nice.

    I set the seat at 29.5" from center of BB.

    I won't be able to provide the geo on the Coopers or the De Rosa. I've no idea how to do that. The Touring bike shines under load. The ELOS is typically steep, but not the least twitchy. Great bike in Central Park. Not my favorite for a really hilly ride.

    This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the bike.

    I believe the frame was built in 1999. The tubing is Dedaccai EOM 16.5. The stem is 130mm, and there is one spacer under it, but I can't say how thick it is offhand. The bars are Salsa Poco, which had the shortest reach and drop at the time I built the bike. But I will have to measure tomorrow. The seat is 29.5 from center of bb. Think the fork is Mizuno. It's not a Shark. The seatpost came with the bike. Think it's 31.8. There's no shim.
    I can't say that this is stock. I know that it and a matching Duende were built for a friend of Gita's owner- if I have the story correct. Matt Barkley wound up with both. He kept the Duende and sold me the Marcelo. The head tube is 145mm. Just right for me.
    Till I get more taken, these are pictures of the Cooper ELOS when I had it built.

    I will get the rest of this taken care of tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.

    with a 14.5 HT I would like 1.5cm spacers so I can run a modest 7cm drop...8cm drop is doable but not preferable for 75+ miles so this is going to be a bit short in the HT for me. I know matt, will ask him if he still has the duende next time I am by his shop. good luck selling

    hmm, great questions. I'll make a note to ask those next time.

    I cannot manage to load photos. Some work, some don't, and the lot won't go through.

    Thanks, Daniel. Why couldn't I do that?
