I'm thinking of buying this Ciocc frame on Monday. He's asking $295 (Toronto prices!).
I was hoping that someone could help me with any information. No idea what year or model, and I'm unsure about the quality of the Columbus tubing.
The ad states:
51cm seat tube, 52cm top tube
Campagnolo horizontal dropouts
Chrome rear triangle
Ciocc pantographed fork and seatstay caps
Shimano 105 headset
Shimano 105 bottom bracket
Not sure how long this link will remain but here's the ad:
He emailed to tell me the Columbus sticker says:
Tubi Speciali Rinforzati Acciaio CRMO
I've poked around online and can't find much about this type of Columbus tubing, except that it likely pre-dates SL, SLX, etc. It roughly translates as 'Special tubes reinforced steel.' Though I wonder if that means 'double butted.'
Pictures from the ad below.
Any ideas as the year, model or any info on this "Tubi Speciali Rinforzati Acciaio CRMO" would be greatly appreciated.
