Pinarello Montello SLX

Looking to buy a Pinarello Montello SLX, asking price is $950, which is a little steep. I would probably want to swap out the Alex R500s for some Mavic Open Pros I have, but otherwise the size is pretty perfect for me. Worth the $950?



Specifications:
Pinarello Montello SLX: Columbus SLX. Beautiful lugs on the frame, internally routed brake tube, chromed rear triangle and Campagnolo drops. Butted and rifled tubing.
Colnago SLX chromed fork: Also lugged, and hand made in Italy from SLX steel.
Cinelli drop bars
Shimano downtube shifters
Shimano 105 crankset 53/39
Shimano 105 1056 front derailleur
Shimano 9 speed 11-23 cassette
Shimano Tiagra 4400 rear derailleur
Full Ultegra 600 brakes and levers - with barrel adjusters
Alex R500 wheels - true and with 23mm Vittoria Zaffiro tires

Why does it have a Colnago fork? SLX is a great frame but I think one with an older and mixed 105 group $950 seems a bit much.



Can you get some better pics?

I am not seeing $950 there and the different fork is a warning sign, as stated above. 105 Franken-build means it's worth a bout frame value, slight premium, and an SLX Pinarello with the wrong fork is not in that ball park.

With Chorus or C-record, and the right fork, it's a buy...not with 105.
