Anyone here snag that nice ALAN Carbonio frameset yesterday at eBay??

Lots of money, at least for me (About $600+, delivered!), but it was a nice frame, pretty much brand new looking.

If it was just a little bigger (54 to 56 CM), I would have sold my kidney to get it! Hope the new owner builds it up nice and shows it in this forum!

I saw that bike too, but it's much too small for me (I ride a 58-60 cm). I've thought about buying one of these lugged carbon or aluminum frames (Vitus, especially) and building it up modern parts. Now that would be cool !

Chombi, have't bought anything from the-climb but he's near me and he's always has some cool stuff. If it is nice, it gets sold quick. I was on the fence with a cheap Univega he had and then it was gone a couple days later.

Uhmmmm... see Macaque's link for "the-climb" That 58cm (your size) Alan Carbonio for sale looks tasty! The price is lofty, but it's a very beautiful bike for that money...considering how much "modern" bikes costs these days. some might even consider it a bargain!

Off-topic, but that Lenton Gran Prix is interesting, too: http://www.the-climb.net/2010/11/ral...gran-prix.html

+1 He can be quite reasonable on some things. I generally find that the parts are the best value, but he follows through. I've bought several times.

i bought my bill holland from him and many sets of tires/tubes etc.

his cool stuff moves fast, but he has had that Alan listed for close to a year at the same price, he also claims to not negotiate on pricing. after buying the holland, i text messaged him about another bike with a slightly lower offer than he was asking and was ignored.

that alan is nice, but it's missing some bits and is not complete DA, if that matters

+1. I found he sets a price and that's pretty much it. Have you seen the rainbow sherbert bike has listed now? Looks like a solid bike...but those colors.

That Holland is stellar. Was too small for me or we'd have been fighting over it.

If you are interested in a C&Vish cf composite, this Look is very nice (it's actually a KG251).

http://phoenix.craigslist.org/nph/bik/2194924690.html

If I hadn't just picked up the KG96, I'd be interested.

The seller and I have been emailing. He is a retired guy who is a C&V collector. Very amenable. He might be willing to ship.

A couple of months ago, I picked up a near cherry 92 Giant Cadex CFR for cheap because it had an 8-speed DA drive train that I wanted for the Look. Last weekend, I built up the Cadex with a mix of RX, Tricolor and 105, and took it for a ride. It is a very robust bike and a great ride.

Dear Chombi

you sent me a private message, but I cannot reply because I have not posted enough on this forum (it makes sense, I understand these policies!)
If you send me a mail at oromisso@gmail.com, I'll then send you back all the info!


best,
Bruno
