well, geez, you guys, rain on my parade. I used tiny because in the past some complaints were made about the long url's. I see your point so I'll go back to the old way. vintage content: For Sale or trade - Witcomb/Colnago wool short sleeve jersey size 3. New in plastic. Beautiful dark blue/purple with white accents on collar and cuffs and white stripe across back above pockets with Witcomb Colnago in stripe. Three back pockets, short zipper. Very nice but too small for me. $30.00 plus shipping. WOULD PREFER TO TRADE for a jersey in similar condition in my size since I don't have any 'vintage' style wool jerseys yet. Not sure what size I wear, but 3 is too small. I am a mens medium/large. And to those who wanted pumps from me, the clavicle is almost healed to the point where I can start using my arm again and get your pumps packed up. Sorry for the delay.

I agree. If people could just provide an item number, it would be easy enough to look up without going through the ad farm.
