Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

So I was looking at this bike CUSTOM MADE CYPRESS ROAD BIKE WITH LOCK AND HELMET Victoria City, Victoria , and I've never heard of the cypress brand before and looked it up on the web and couldn't find any info. Just wondering if anyone knew anything about it .

Probably need to contact the seller about the original owner/builder. The tubes (Down tube at least) look too big to be steel, but I am not sure I would trust hand-built aluminum. Fork is semi-aero, could be carbon, so whole frame could be carbon. Ad says nothing of groupset. The decals don't look homemade. Super-cheap pedals and seat, buy the looks of it. I cannot read the logos on the cranks; stem might be Specialized.

Could be a frame from anywhere. I'd ask for the builder's number if possible.

Unless I got a lot more info, I might pass on it unless I got an outrageous deal. On the other hand, this could be a one-off, lovingly hand-built jewel of incredible value which you might treasure for the rest of your life. Roll them dice.
