if you can get it for $150, it's good.
you do have to consider the rebadged, fuji/windsors sell on ebay for $350 complete.
not that the parts on them are great... do you have parts to put on the frame?

frame as in not all the components, whateverz

yeah, i think that's fair for 150, but if you dont have the rest of the parts just pick it up (or the mercier kilo tt) for 350 complete on ebay

the frame is wonderful as far as i'm concerned, couldnt be happier with it (got the mercier, because i liked black better than yellow)

yeah I've got a conversion that I'm gonna swap parts from. he was askin 200 my response was "you're crazy, it's used and 3 years old" he then mellowed to 150. the biggest reason I'm after it is that when he had it complete I loved how it fit and felt. cool, I was just makin sure no one was gonna be like "F dat! I wouldn't pay more than 100"

thanks again1

$150 for that seems pretty good. I've been looking for a $150 track frame for a while (hint: anyone? 56/57?) and can't really find any down here....Good luck with the build.

BTW - some rattlecan black will solve that excitable yellow up front....

Sort of thing grows on you. I have a bike that I hated after I bought it (!) and now it's one of my favorites. Enjoy...!

Doh! I hope you get better. What happened?

On the other hand, I can concur. Mine's been hit three times!

That's not the bb width. That's the bb axle length.
