It's really hard (for me) to comment on the price, given the foreign market. However, it is a entry level model and almost certainly hi-tensile tubing given the stamped dropouts. While the derailleurs are Campagnolo, they are entry levels models with not the best reputation. The gearing is quite tight and suitable only for flat terrain or fit riders. On the plus side, the bicycle has a bit more aluminum than I'd expect to see, especially the rims. At first, I was wondering if these were replacements given that the brake pads are at the very bottom of there adjustment range but the frame clearance look appropriate. What appears to be a GB stem is also a surprise, as I've rarely seen this on non-British bicycles. It's unfortunate that the pedals have been replaced with rubber block models.
