Anyone have any experience with the 'Casati Cromor Track' frame?
R & A in Brooklyn is selling them for $400. Looks good but can't get any info on it
Casati frame s are ok. R and A is/was sole distributor for Casati bikes in USA.
Cromor is Columbus tubing
This link will provide you info on the different types of Columbus tubing.

$40 wholesale? so there's a 10 fold markup?

that's $40 for the tubeset, it still has to be made into a bike :)

DW is talking about the raw cost of the tubing, as he's a framebuilder. The raw tubes cost $40 for a set, and then you have to weld them together, align, paint, finish etc. the frame. That is how $40 in raw material turns into a $400 frame.

That frame looks nice. It's a shame they only have a 56 and a 59. Nice to know a Colnago sans fork still costs upwards of $1.5K

I was kidding.

Sorry, i look for the obvious winkie smiley when saracasm is afoot....
No harm, no foul.
FWIW, using those those "emoticon" doohikeys makes me feel like a 13 year old girl on AIM.
LMAO....i am unsure if i have EVER felt like a 13 year old girl...i might have felt one UP when i was 13, but thats different....
nope, not feeling anything....
i may have to get one of those
