This is the best deal you've come up with yet. The pricing appears to be on hte high end of fair for Vancouver. Consequently, one has to wonder why it hasn't sold in over a month. It does appear to be maybe one size smaller than a 56cm.

You may want to consider having somebody back home pack up your bicycle and send it out to you. My son goes to school in Victoria and based on the difference in market prices, that quickly became my conclusion.

I would go knock on the sellers door with $300 in my hand a few stray $5s available to dig out from under the seats. I kind of like Campys Victoryy and wouldn't mind having a Camerotti either.
It is definitely a better deal the Bianchi and bit better than the Macaroni but still a bit high. A real deal breaker for a new rider is the tubular tires (AKA sewups the kind you have to glue on the rims)

Oh, I did not realise it had tubulars. That is not something I want to be dealing with!

+1 good deal for the price but this is bit more of a vintage racing bike full tubulars and fairly old school aggressive gearing not the best choice for new rider.
