Hi there is this bike on ebay I am looking at
here is the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...id=p2759.l1259
I am considering buying it because it has ultegra components and has a BIN at $308. That's a good deal right????
The shipping shouldn't be an issue for me since I live in CA so I can just local pickup.
However I would like any info on the takahashi sannow bike. Like any history, or the quality of it, or even the type of tubing, is it heavy?, hows the handling, stiff or flexy. Any info would be greatly appreciated
thanks in advance
edit: to make matters more complicated, I looked on google for info on the frame and it gave a hit on an OC craigslist posting (which is my county). Here's the link: http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/871816447.html
notice the ebay and CL bike have the same saddle, seatpost and even the same scratch on the seattube. The differences are that the ebay bike has brakes, shifters, and different cranks and handlebars than the CL fixed gear version of the bike.
I emailed the CL posting, but it got bounced back, saying the email wasn't valid because it was old or seomthing.
