Where did 19 of those come from?

Are our brifters becoming serious collectibles?

NOS is cutthroat. I'm looking for an 06 TCR Advanced in 56, saw a NOS one on eBay... Dude wants US$3700 for it, even though the FC-7800 has been pinched and replaced with a FSA crank. Brutal.

What do they say? A fool and his/her money are soon parted.... Only for those that NEED to have it all correct and looking fine!
Best, Ben
