I could rationalize $200. It's got a super high bb that I'm thinking would be perfect for a 650b conversion. I've been just itching to do one, already laced a front wheel and found a set of 42c Hectres at the co-op a few months ago.

Head tube angle is absurd on the smaller sizes, and a 5cm jump in TT length between M and L sizes is nuts. If an L or XL fits I might consider it, but the smaller sizes make no sense.

Wow. That is kind of ridiculous.

That stem is worth more than the bike and cooler than the bike.

Sadly not true. I just put up a steel threadless stem (110mm 3 deg 1") on ebay in febuary and only got $10. Market on old stuff isn't what it was.

I'm still really close to pulling the trigger on a large. That bb drop just sounds too good for my riding.

I've been watching vintage Salsa quills for awhile on eBay, I can tell you for sure that they do not go for $10.

Old threadless stems may be another matter, but I would bet vintage Salsa threadless stems fetch a good amount as well.

Different stem, people want the one with the multi color logo which will fetch a higher price.

The quill versions go for big $$. Been waiting for the right length and rise for awhile so I get alerts on these daily.

40mm BB drop? That's... something.

I've been playing around with this bike geometry page. I've come to the conclusion that it's probably a conventional track geometry frame designed for a fork ~380mm with 55mm of drop. They've paired it with an overlong fork that's 400mm. That raises the bb to a 40mm drop and slackens the headtube.

So, I stuck a kona p2 on the front of my TipoPista. Measured the bb at 41mm of drop. Went for a ride on my local singletrack loop I like to ride, didn't work as well as I'd hoped.
