believe me, the thought has crossed my mind already. Though I am already building my px10 to be very similar...but it's not a singer...but it's about the experience...but it's not a singer....but

My wife would be a singer if I tried to pull that, and it wouldn't be a pretty tune.

It's nice to ogle, but it's funny too, because even if we could afford it, we'd still be too cheap to buy it.

So true but make my upper limit closer to $100 - just call me the big spender.

Thank goodness that Cinelli is waaaaay too small for me or I'd be looking into selling the kid for medical experiments.


I'm only kidding . . . I think

Yeah, that Cinelli is too small for me too. But that Singer! Yikes.
I wonder if my wife would notice if I sold her car?
I wonder if I'd notice if I sold my car?
I wonder if there is a liquor store around here I can knock over...

Not sure. It seems to have a mish-mash of parts and no internal wiring (or at least I did not see any) so I think it will go lower than expected. If it were my size I would keep an eye on it..........

Couple of interesting items:

1) Frame is made from SLX, not TSX

2) Frame is unavailable to U.S.buyers, but will ship anywhere else in the world!

Yesterday on ebay a Masi Special ended at over $4,700.

I had thought it was going to sell in the 3K range. Not even close.

My grail limit is $300. Not many grail bikes at that level. So far, each bike in the keeper fleet has stayed under that figure (one bike was within $5)...

I think we now have an unofficial Grail bike thread.

I know it is not as fancy as the other beautiful bikes here, but since I can afford and really don't need something as fancy as a real Hellenic (I think that is correct) frame or a Hetchens made with the design like this.
http://www.hetchins.org/403.htm










I would easily settle for one of these, but the top of the line model of course
