    Rose Bicycles? Anyone heard of them?

    I just purchased this frame and fork and was wondering if anyone has heard of it. I'm guessing that the last name of the builder is Rose? Any information?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_500wt_1154

    Thanks for any help!

    It ain't a Cinelli, that's for sure. I suppose if the SS couplers are done right, it's worth the price. He's been trying to sell it for awhile.

    I knew that it wasn't a Cinelli, but 480.00 for an S&S coupled frame in my size sounded too good. We'll see how it looks in person. I hope it's done well too.

    Yeah, I thought it could be mended. I'm such an idiot.

    Well, hopefully I won't get screwed. I was nervous as is. Hm, we'll see what it looks like upon arrival.

    Only manufacturer I've heard of called Rose is a German company that have just started to import high quality new road bikes into the UK. This might be one of their earlier products, perhaps? No idea if that's correct. Looks like a high quality demountable frame with those brilliant Stainless Steel couplings, great for travel, you can fit your whole road bike into a largish suitcase!

    I'm going to risk the negative feedback. I'll most likely have ti repainted, but we'll see what the overall condition is like. I'm excited to get it.

    That seller's feedback rating is really bad for someone that active. Be careful. Seller has at least one negative and multiple neutrals every month. Negatives use strong words like: deceptive, very dishonest, etc....

    that's the price of the couplers plus a free frame. If it fits and you wanted a travel bike, it's a good deal. Assuming no hidden problems.

    I've recently seen a tandem bike with those same couplings to break it apart. Looked like good workmanship to me. Can't remember the name on the bike.
