Good buy?

picked a vitus 979 with all dura ace components for $200. Bike is in great condition, and works well. Just needed to pick some new tires. The frame is a 57 pretty small for me as I need a 60 or 61. I was thinking about selling the frame and fork, and getting a nice steel frame for around 150-200. what you think?

Very nice buy with Dura Ace. You should be able to sell the frame and get a decent steel one. Good job.

Sounds like a great buy with DA. I know someone who has an immediate need for a 57, where are you located?
