Saw a frame n it's just my size to make a FG/CL But can anybody say how much is reasonable? And also say sth bout the frame? Coz the seller dint know much about that. And also, if I have another choice - bianchi pista SS(around 2007) which is 400(complete bike), which one is better for SS/CL?

THX!!!!!!!

2007 Pista retailed for $579, so I would not consider $400 a good deal at all.

As for the other frame? You have given us no info at all. So yeah, a million bucks sounds about right

Well for starters it is not a Pista frame. So if you want a Pista frame buy one and be done with it.

What else do you need to know about the frame in the link? The seller states it is a '94 or '95 frame and this seems about right as a frame may be used for several years. he gives the size, BB threading, ST and TT measurements, seatpost size and dropout spacing.

personally I think $200 to 250 is a good for this frame. It does seem funny to me that it has a pumppeg and a number tab that blocks its use.

Looks like a decent frame at the current price. I probably wouldn't go too much higher, but then, to be perfectly honest (and may BG not strike me down), celeste doesn't do anything for me. It was my favorite color when I was like 10-12, but not so much these days.

With 17 bids already, this one will probably go a lot higher. Unless you have a pile of quality parts in hand, I would go hunting a complete bike instead.

+1

Prices always spike in the last second or two of an auction. Price is already high enough that if you don't have parts to put on this thing you'll be in too deep once you're done building it up.

There are a LOT of complete fixed gear/SS bikes out there. Building one up from the bare frame is the way more expensive way to go about it.
