what Tom B. didn't buy...

Geez Tom I don't know how you missed it. Or maybe you saw it and passed on it knowing that I was around to be tempted. In any event, what Tom didn't buy I did-a 1 year old Dean titanium frameset with an Ouzo Pro front fork-never crashed and only ridden to church on sunday am's by a little old lady, I think from Pasadena. I had a couple of friends look it over one a frame builder and the other a mechanic. They both gave it a thumbs up esp as I got it for 550. I know, considerably more than Tom spent but as I keep getting told-YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU.

I saw a LOT of bikes and frames that I didn't buy. Looked at a number of frames, but just didn't have any interest in taking on a bike build at this time. And there weren't many frames in my size, most of the ones I saw were 56-60cm.

Sounds like you scored quite a deal too! What are you planning to do with that beast?
