    Casati Cromor Track

    Anyone have any experience with the 'Casati Cromor Track' frame?

    R & A in Brooklyn is selling them for $400. Looks good but can't get any info on it

    DW is talking about the raw cost of the tubing, as he's a framebuilder. The raw tubes cost $40 for a set, and then you have to weld them together, align, paint, finish etc. the frame. That is how $40 in raw material turns into a $400 frame.

    That frame looks nice. It's a shame they only have a 56 and a 59. Nice to know a Colnago sans fork still costs upwards of $1.5K

    No harm, no foul.

    FWIW, using those those "emoticon" doohikeys makes me feel like a 13 year old girl on AIM.
