    If it is bent...I could counter-offer 1/3...like say $50-70? Honestly, for the seller (a somewhat brusque older fellow who said he finds and sells bikes) to describe it as "Condition: New", it seems...

    I would appreciate any opinions on this frame:

    The owner seems to have gotten it for a project and, after doing the BB and work on the headset, is giving it up. He estimates a 1985 production but...

    Choosing a new frame comes down to practical vs aspirational. I get more inspired by Bike Quarterly's reviews than maybe I should since my needs are best served by a 700c all-rounder like a Double...
