    Pinarello cyclocross CX frameset? Any feedback on this?

    Hey all,

    I'm wondering what you think about this Pinarello cyclocross CX frameset?

    00h0h_bs5ewheSwoL_600x450.jpg

    Here's what the seller is saying (in italic) about it.

    made in Italy frameset frame fork lugged steel

    vintage all steel fully lugged Pinarello treviso CX all road bike. cyclocross, but also makes an outstanding rough road bike with 32c slick tires (how I used it)

    original paint with minor scuffs in many places, no major damage. stickers are reproductions but correct for this bike.

    includes ritchey logic headset, cinelli 130 made in italy stem, and ritchey WCS aluminum 42cm handlebars. , takes 27.2 seatpost

    sizing. 57.5 top tube, seat tube 60cm Center to center, head tube 190mm, italian thread BB

    great style, you dont see these everyday, classic italian design, no issues, no surprises


    He wants $500 bucks for it, which seems kinda extreme to me, but I'm no expert!

    Oh yeah, this will be for non racing or recreational cyclocross.

    $500 is pricey for what is essentially only a frame. You have to factor in the price of a wheelset, cassette, chain, crankset, pedals, seatpost, saddle, cantilever brakes, STI levers, derailleur/brake cables, derailleur/brake housing, and other small bits to assemble it together, and if you don't have a crank press/puller, you need to take it to the bike shop too. From my estimates, you are looking at about $1000 minimum with low/mid range components (wheelset: $150 cassette: $25 chain $25 crankset: $80 pedals: $20 seatpost: $20 saddle: $50 cantilever brakes: $50 for a set, STI levers: Shimano Tiagra $150 derailleur/brake cables and derailleur/brake housing for $25 (total $1095), and other small bits to assemble it together $1000 can buy you a modern 20 speed cylocross bike without all the hassle of assembly. It really depends on if you need to have vintage or if you are fine with the look of a modern production bike.

    I see him wanting $700 for it on eBay. I wouldn't pay it myself (even though it's my size), but I could see that frame going for at least $400 if he's patient enough. Ask over on the C&V evaluation forum. I wouldn't be surprised to hear them say $500 is reasonable range. Could be wrong though.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Thanks for the find and the suggestion himespau. I posted it here on the C&V forum if anyone is interested. Sorry for the double posting too.

    OK, so maybe I overestimated a little bit.

    I purchased this Simoncini Cyclocross Special as a frameset from eBay. I paid less than $300.



    The frame was in great shape. I replaced the fork. Many of these Italian CX forks have narrow cantilever post centers, effecting braking performance.

    If you want a Cyclocross frame for fast rides or a frame that can take larger tires, seek out a newer frame. If you want a classic bike that will take 700x30 or 700x32 tires for gravel fun, the Pinarello cyclocross CX will be a great bike for the collection.

    Pass on that. I bought a pristine condition Blue CXC frame for less than that!

    If you're looking for the classic looks, I'd look towards the All-City lineup.

    Well looks like I'm a proud owner of a Trek. It's not a classic, but that wasn't my first priority. Just wanted a good all around CX bike for everyday use. The reviews I read on this Trek all seemed pretty good. No one really griped about anything.

    Thanks everyone for the help and fb.
