I like this bike! I found it on craigslist. The tig welded frame is Reynolds 853. The components are primarily 105 (rear derailleur is Ultegra). The fork is aluminum (not my preference). The frame is 21 lbs as pictured. I replaced the handlebars, tape, cables, water bottle holders, and shifters (original rear shifter was broken). My total investment is $240. I intend to keep this bike (at least until I find something better), but I am interested in its value. I've read some older posts, but I'm interested in hearing a current evaluation.
Also, can anyone tell me where this frame was made? I can't find any information about the manufacturer. (I've searched without luck and the frame doesn't say).
Thanks so much. This C&V forum is great!
