    Samson & Vivalo frame, what do you think?

    Just found these at Dreamworks Cycle in Shibuya.
    The Samson is 56cm seatpost, rear 110mm and 27.0mm seatpost for $790 but it has a small dent on the lower side of the top-tube. Hard to see though. (but wonder if that's fixable)

    The vivalo is $910 and is spotless.
    57cm 120mm rear

    I really like the Samson, but with that dent, I am not sure if it's worth the money. What do you guys think?
    If I ever decide to get that fixed I am not sure how much that would be.

    If it makes you happy, then go for it.

    Do you know which frame's dimensions is closer to your need? Get the one that fits.

    the 56cm fits much better but has the dent.
    it's from an accident the shop says.

    Oh, if it got dinged by the handlebar then it's fine. Cover it up with a top tube protector and you'll be fine.

    I say go for the Samson...but then you need to spend money to buy a new wheelset. Put it on a spreadsheet to see which one truly worth the time and money.

    You can get a frame with a size with a fraction; like a 55.5; 55.3 etc... why not, when you're spending $1k on a frame? Keep looking lol
