My lbs (one on one) has a faggin portofino (http://www.faggin.de/Produkte/cat_cross/PORTOFINO.htm) frame in red for $275. It's a 57 cm which would fit me perfectly (i'm currently on a too large 62 cm). I'm almost positive it has horizontal drops. The frame is in immaculate condition with only one minor nick in the paint that I could see. The guy said I'd probably need a new bottom bracket for it to work with my sugino crankset. If this is the case how much would I be looking at for a bottom bracket? Is it worth buying if everything I have will swap over? I've been looking at frames for a while now and this one is light, but more than I was looking to spend. I'm willing to shell out the dough if it's worth the cash though.
