    It's Reynolds 531 (steel!), lugged, nice components and looks in great condition. That colour's nice too. And that price. I say do it.

    You may still have time. It is Reserve not met.

    You may want to send the seller an email to see what kind of price he is looking at.

    Personally, the components are the selling point. I am not a big fan of the frame yet the components make it golden. I do wonder why he did not mention the brand of the rims.

    i almost bought that bike about a week ago when it was listed here
    If you get it, see if he'll still throw in the extra rings and cogs that he had in the classified add.

    So it looks like the auction ended and the reserve wasn't met, even at $460. Now its relisted with a Buy it Now of $750.
    So gh-ap, don't sweat it. There was no steal of a deal to be had.

    I wonder how you can go from asking $300 to asking $750.
    He must have gotten a ridiculous amount of offers, or maybe somebody told him his frame was worth double that.
