    Buyers can typically specify anything from 130 to 145; depends on how they will be using the bike and other considerations such as the ability to move aero wheels for time trials between bikes, etc.

    Assuming the frame hasn't developed a case of sub-dermal acne and is otherwise in very good shape, $6k would be top dollar... but the buyer would need to be someone looking for a VR2 on a budget. ...

    Ya think??? I'd want to get a serial number and check with the good folks at Paketa on this one, just to see if there's a back story. But, yes, it definitely has the right rear bottom bracket for...
