He said frameset not complete bike correct?

I'm sure you could go really cheap on ebay. I got my Bridgestone for $50. YMMV.

The Dawes frame is the same as the Windsor Hour/Fuji Track. That price is impossible to beat - I can't believe that they lasted a day on eBay.

Why not get another Kilo frame? They're supposed to be available shortly, right?

Spicer standerd steel frame is identical to Kilo TT, but you can take decals off easily. I got the frame with non-standard chrome fork from him, and the actual cost of the frame itself came down to $150.

my friend bought his sparton a couple of years ago. I got to ride it and i think his is the better quality one as opposed to now. It has very quick handling and doesn't seem bad at all, but I don't know how the ones that are selling on ebay are.
