Not bad bikes, sturdy to the 10th degree. This one is all original for the most part.

Hi Bob;

Nice.  A couple of questions: did you purchase the brake levers as is, or fabricate them?  And do you know when the Crisscross switched from lugged to TIG welded?  I have a friend with a lugged Crisscross.

Thank you
Nigel

Hey Nigel, The lever's are original to the bike. I actually am considering swapping them out as I like the dual reach for the barends I use a lot. They are Tektro pretty rare. I have a pat. # for them, I could try to find a model# if you need. My 93's and 94 do have a lugged seat collar. I would guess the lugged framed ones would be pre 1992. I bought these bike's to resell. You may have seen my 22in frame 93' (lost post). I still have it. This 94' was sold together with another 93' 22in. frame Crisscross. with the inverted SuntourS1 groupset. This one is white in color. I paid $195 for the pair, no great deal but I knew they would clean up very nice, are good bikes, and I should be able to resell them for around $200 each. They fell into my minimum 25 cent on the dollar expectation range. I think these will be $ for $ profit when they sell.

Mission accomplished, sold today for a cool $220. It is getting a 4in. rise alloy bar in the deal, along with standard levers to suit the buyer. Works for me as I kinda wanted to keep the levers anyways. Everybody's happy! just the way I like it!
Sorry Bicycle Blue Book .com. Sill a joke, always will be. Not even close!
