Cramerotti Cross Bike?

Found this on Craigslist:

Cramerotti cyclocross bike

Did some research and they appear to have been out of Canada. Anybody have any experience with this brand? It looks a little banged up but price isn't terrible if it's legit..

If the thing is an alum frame I would steer clear of it. Alum tends to fail once its dented like that.

The components are a couple generations old and the frame isnt exactly pristine. Tough to say that cost is justifiable.

If the wheels and drivetrain are in good condition, id still consider buying it...to part out/use for a frame that i wanted. And i'd offer a whole lot less that list price.
