Trailer duty

Because life is not all fun and games (and training rides)—if only! Sometimes, one is but just a mule, ferrying around one’s pint-sized overlords.



Baby Rossin

Pretty sweet—panto’d chain ring, wow! If we weren’t already up to our ears in bambino road bikes, we’d be jonesing for this pretty hard (although it’s worth noting that the wheel size here is actually 650c (571mm) and not 24×1 (520mm), which technically makes this just a (very) small road bike, not a youth or juvenile model).


47cm Rossin Junior Road Frame, Campagnolo dropouts
Fiamme Red Label 650c rims
New tires and spares
Miche low flange hubs
Campy NR Front and Rear Derailleurs
Campy Record Brakes (Panto calipers and levers)

Campy First Gen SR Seat Pin (Not Panto)
Campy shift levers (cutout)
Cinelli Stem (Panto)
Cinelli Bars
Selle (I Think) Prestige Saddle
Pedals not included
Alloy Cage
TDF Bottle

All very good condition, but not museum quality. Very serviceable with just some minor garage wear.

Eddy Merckx Enfants



Eddy Merckz Starnord Bikes 48 cm 39 cm – $375

Mid 70’s Eddy Merckx bicycles. If you’re looking at this then you probably already know how great these bikes are. If I had kids I would love to keep these but I don’t even have a girlfriend 😦 There is some paint chipping and general dust and dirt from being in storage but overall good condition for being 40 years old. Both need new tubes but they’re complete besides that. I haven’t been able to find out much about these small frame Merckx except that they were made in France.

Orange 48cm – $375
Blue 39cm- $325

Please email or text at 612 – 8 zero 2 – 2144 with any questions.

These bikes are in Madison right now but I come to Minneapolis every weekend and can deliver.

Piedrahita 20″ wheel kids road/cross bike – $300 (Canton)
