Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

Thinking about picking this bike up, need some advice!



What model frame is this bike? I was thinking it's a Colnago Super Bike, but the top bar
on the back of the frame "not sure what it's called" seems lower than the pictures
i've seen on other Colnago Super Bikes. Most ive seen go right up to the seat post, but this one for some reason is lower. is it legit? what would any of you pay max for this frame?

i swear i just saw that same bike the other day in another thread. someone should be able to link it to you, i can't find it.

1. front end damage
2. probably not a colnago
3. probably not worth your money.

big fat thank you.. geez and I was about to drop around 400 for the frame, too bad cause I like the color. good thing I noticed some weirdness and ran a cross-check on it.
Better off with a used njs or something, oh well.. back to waiting for a deal to come my way.

Just goes to show that the dude is a complete liar and cheat. He's already been called out by another forum member. Give me his coordinates and I'll call the pentagon for a drone attack.

The clever bastard parted it and colored the fork to make it less recognizable.... shame on him.

Was this on Craigslist? What city? Someone should post in it letting people know it's fake.

I got a Huffy with Colnago stickers I'll sell you for only $300, a much better deal than this frame obviously.

I just won a Vilano frameset on eBay in a kinda Celeste green color. I wonder if I put some Bianchi stickers on it if I can pass it off as a Pista and flip it for mondo profit.

Wow, that frame looks even worse in those pictures. Def. bent beyond repair. Offer $10 for the headset, seatpost and saddle, toss the frame in the dumpster.

After you chop up the entire thing to prevent a potential soul from finding it and going "ZOMGWTFBBQ JUST FOUND A COLNAGO IN A DUMPSTERZ!?!?!?"

I really hope someone doesn't end up buying this thing, although I don't have much confidence that someone won't.
