Truthfully, if it was here, I'd be trying to buy it.
I really like it.
It's interesting, in great shape, has great components.

Comparable to the $500 Sora Treks around here, easily better.
Just my opinion.

I agree. I may take a run at it even though I'm at the bike saturation point.

Full Carbon Fiber Road Bike 56cm - $650 (7th Street & Union Hills)

I'm selling my Look KG 257 full carbon fiber road bike. It's a mid 90's bike but you can't tell it by looking at it. The frame size is 56cm c-t-c with a stand over height of 32.25". Components are Shimano 600 ( Ultegra ), Deda stem. Cinelli drop bars, 16spd, Chris King head set and a nice set of Velocity wheels. It also has the speedometer with multi functions. Bike rides out really nice. I might would consider your bike as part trade and the rest cash.

  • it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

That "looks" like a nice bike. If I didn't have my K96, I'd be interested.

When and why was curved tubing banned and is it still? Never heard of that, a lot of frames these days have curving top tubes, why doesnt that count?

Good question. Why don't you post this as a new thread to get better coverage.
