    Kastle Mountain Bike

    This bike is on my local Craigslist for $100. Attached is the 1 photo from the ad. I found one mention of a Kastle frame here on BF and that it is likely made of Tange Prestige. The seller simply listed it as "italian racing bike"; I found that Kastle was acquired by Atala at some point.

    I haven't done much off-road riding in a long time because of having to go so far to get outta town. For $100, I may grab this.

    Looks like about $50 too much.

    In the day that was nice stuff. Today, wheel and deal as the man in the hat suggests!
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    Responses appreciated. The photo is not very clear and components appear to be from Shimano's "low profile" crank days.

    As far as the "brand" Kastle - anyone know anything about it?

    I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to road bikes but if this frame is possibly made of Tange Prestige and I could make it work - what could possibly go wrong?
