Found this at Goodwill. I had to replace the rear tube (Luckily I had an extra) and I need to rewrap it. I think I'm going to use this orange wrap I have sitting around.

Can anyone give me any info or their best guess on the year of this?

The store had it priced at $150. I used my discount card to get it to $135 and then found $10 in the utility bag when I got home. It also had a pretty sweet TopPeak Alien multi-tool that looks to be brand new.

The groupset is Shimano 105 everything with a Shimano flight deck computer

I really need to stop by the Salvation Army store on my home sometime.

I would say you did pretty good for 125. It looks to be an mid '90s bit I didn't think the CdI had 105 I'll have to look that up. Any information on the tubing type?

Thanks Bianchigirll,

Its the Dedacciai Cro-Mo tubing... I feel like the 105 stuff may be aftermarket

The 105 is worth about $125 on eBay, if you part it out...so...free frame!
