    It has a rear derailler holder welded to the bottom of the drop out and a rear brake holder welded to the stay arch
    I know that would scare me a bit.

    + the fact that there are no pics of the drive side dropout that has the der hanger welded to it.

    Agreed.

    Any news on the actual shipping cost yet?

    At $62... you're at $200 roughly already... which is only $50 off from a Mark V.

    However.. if all is well with the frame.... etc etc.

    Kudos.

    still waiting for the shipping cost, I'm really wondering about the geometry, but hopefully if it's too slack (road bike) I can fix it with one of the random track forks I have laying around.

    I bought my frame off this seller a year ago. I didn't recognize the brand name either, but it turned out to be a great frame, which I love with all my soul. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Haha, I thought he said "candida" and was going to recommend some fluconazole.

    So apparently it's from Flash Cycles in Midlands W.A., any aussies want to chime in on that?
    It's a Caminda Medallion, nervex luggs english bb, a 26.8(?) seatpost (it's hard to tell, the hole is ovalized abit) and appears to be brush painted.

    here are some pics, I'm bringing it in the the shop tomorrow to remove the derailleur hanger and see about a seatpost.
