Poor mans cx bike perhaps? By the lack of decals and odd outfitting I'd have to say it's a big pass at 260.

Cross levers, only, hidden behind the ramps at that angle. I'd pay no more than $130-$150.

Looks like a real hack job. I think that's an MTB crank; rattle can paint, probably low end to start. 260 is ridiculous.

I was thinking that too, but the STI boss converters say otherwise.. it must have had DT shifters originally but god only knows what it was.

Point. Still looks like a parts bin rebuild. Still overpriced. Too many warning signs...
