    Maybe, but going by their website, it looks like they ordered the bikes made from Taiwan with their logo on them. Looks like the site hasn't been updated since 2006 also!

    For 500 bucks (non-negotiable), I'd be looking elsewhere.

    It's funny how the guy "needs the $$$ for new computer parts", yet he'd be down to "trade for older Limongi, Bianchi (older Pistas?), or high-end Peugeot models (fixed-gears)".

    Ha

    On this site, asking for opinions = asking for insults.

    I've never heard of that brand. That doesn't automatically mean it's crap, but the diacompte (sic) brake and the alex wheelframes (????) indicate both that the components are ****ty and that the seller is an idiot. For $500 you can get a pretty nice bike- a hell of a lot nicer than that one for sure.
