  1. ASKING $700.00 PACKED, SHIPPED AND INSURED IN CON USA.

    For sale is one 58 cm Carrerra Brain - like a newer Cassiopea - road bike
    with full Campagnolo Chorus 8 spd. save for the Record Ergo Levers and
    Record Front Derailleur.

    Yellow Frame (made by Podium in Italy) with red decals, chrome chainstay,
    chrome fork. Frame has a 58 cm (c-t) seat tube, a 57 cm (c-c) top tube,
    parallel 73.5 degree angles, but does not have a pump peg or a chain hanger.

    The wheels were just built by Hans Schneider, the owner of Hans Schneider
    Cycles in Huntsville, Texas, using a NOS GP4 front tubular rim and a Wolber
    rear tubular rim that looks absolutely identical to the GP4 but for the
    sticker. The front wheel is 32h and the rear is 36h. The spokes are Sapim
    double-butted and the nipples are Sapim as well. The front hub is in near
    mint condition and the rear hub has barely been used as well. Bike will
    come with two cassettes, a 13-26 and a 12-21. The 13-26 looks ugly but
    works flawlessly and the 12-21 looks new when wiped down.

    Other parts to appreciate are the Eddy Merckx Bend 3T handlebars 44cm (o-o),
    a 120mm Ritchey Quill stem, a Campagnolo C-Record aero seat post, Record
    Headset, Avocet O2 saddle (a toss in; this has been on several bikes), some
    Time Equipe Magnesium Pedals with a set of new cleats, and some nearly new
    Hutchinson Tempo tubular tires (2 glues on the wheels plus a spare). Oh
    yeah, the yellow and red striped Cinelli cork tape looks sweet on the bike.

    THIS BIKE HAS LESS THAN 1,000 MILES ON IT AND IS AS FLAWLESS AS IT CAN BE!!!

    I am a recreational rider practicing law in San Antonio, and just don't have
    time to ride. Plus, I'm divorcing and need to raise money to pay of a tax
    bill. I bought this bike second hand from a friend that blew out his knee
    on an enduro motorcycle. He rode the bike 4 times before I bought it in
    November 2004. He bought it new in 1997. The frameset was made in 1996,
    however.

    Andare Pantani! Andare Chiapucci! Andare Squadra Carrera!
