Default Slim for sale (and it hurts)

Unfortunately, some of the 2 wheel favorites have to go down the road. 1993/4 56cm slim w/ 57cm top tube. Yellow and White Slim Chance decals. D&D purple flake paint. Probably TSX tubing - not sure. Rebuilt with Ultegra, Salsa +5 stem, Mavic Headset, Richie WCS bars. Some chipped paint but great condition. Like many others on the forum - the older I get, the more upright I have to be and I can't make this frame fit any longer no matter how much I try. Looking for $900. We own a bike shop so we can safely ship her.

The OP had trouble logging in, but this bike is still available (someone PMed asking).

Looks like it is in great shape!

I bought this bike outside of this site, rode it 6 miles before the frame failed due to internal rust where the down tube and the bottom bracket meet. I did get my $ back...

I bought this bike and sent it back after I was able to insect it in person. It was full of rust. Turns out I knew the sellers from way back, they are nice people.

Not exactly what I call "great condition". Especially a bike shop owner should be able to tell.
