    Colnago Master Olympic frame 650c

    Hi all.

    I got Colnago Master Olympic frame 510 recently, but it has fork for 650c front wheel.

    it's like the model in this ebay

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Colnago-Master-O...em290206426020

    In regard of this, I have some questions like below. It will be highly appreciated if you answer or advise me
    some tips

    1. How much is it for the used frame of this model normally? I wonder if i bought at a reasonable price or not? the frame was with bb + campa crank ..

    2. What I'm worried is the frond wheel is 650c. Is there many fixie riders who rides fronwheel 650C and rearwheel 700c on the road? I also want to do some tricks with this bike..but wonder is it okay with 650C front wheel.

    2. is there any online shop where i can buy 700c colnago fork only ? used is okay...

    I'm a newbie here and in fixed gear.. so hope i can get a lot of information here.


    Thank you in advance.

    i'm going to assume this is a realpost

    #2 you'll be fine with 650, a lot of people that do tricks use 650s
    #2 probably ebay will be your best bet

    no idea what a good price is, i agree, follow ebay

    650 is okay, lots of people ride it on the street.

    don't buy a 700 fork and put it on there, it makes the geometry really whack.

    Don't you mean DO put a 700 fork on and get a 700 wheel(unless of course the bike was designed from 650 wheels)? That makes the geometry unwhack. As far as I know, Colnago never sold any Master frames pursuit style.
