vitus plus carbone 7

Asking for 360$ does it worth it?

I'm always leery of buying vintage, bonded, carbon fibre framesets, unless I can examine them in person. $360 is a good deal but it sours if you have to add $100 for shipping and the take the associated risks. This is a comfortable, very light frameset and the Superbe is great equipment. However, be aware that the Accushift index components are not compatible with SIS and are getting scarcer and more expensive to obtain.

Definitely worth it as a local pickup. Someone in the LA area needs to grab it. Add $100 shipping, plus the risks TMar mentions, and it is OK. Since you are in a red hot market, its probably still a good deal.

BTW, that is a Carbone 3 (As in CF 3 main tubes), not a 7......
If the joints and tubes check out good, that is a good buy at that price, especially with the Suntour Superbe components on it.
