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

i have an opportunity to buy a NOS of the above bike. Built up with Campy Chorus Gruppo. The price is $3K. Is this a good deal?

Thanks.

I'd rather have ANYTHING that fits than an odd sized Colnago.

Wait, I take that back. I'll take the Colnago, sell it and buy something that fits.

But, thinking about it, why would I buy a Colnago that doesn't fit in the first place if all I'm going to do is resell it so I can buy one that does fit in the second place?

Oh yeah, cause it is such a good deal. But if I sell it, can I get enough to buy the one that actually fits? I mean, without having to add a lot of cash just to make the deal?

And what if its not "pie day" at the shop where I go to buy my correct fitting Colnago?

Such issues....
