It's up again, the last time it only hit $4800, what's it going to go for this time?

How's about we have a retrobike whipround and give Willz a wonderfully tacky engagement prezzie. :P :lol:

I was going to take a punt on this but a few things put me off :

1) Those regal saddles last a matter of weeks before they wear out. I've had two and they are pants. If I bought this I would thrash it every day on my paper round. I need reliability.

2) It's got the ghastly 'BMX' forks. Whoever thought of straight forks at Colnago HQ should be taken out and be given a thorough beating with a pair of them. They don't deserve to know about the gorgeous 80's Peugeot half chromed beauties and the 90's Italian full chromed aero crowned wonders. Bezier curves anyone ?

3) I can't afford it

Pete, I'll grant this is a better 'out' than a altus groupset.

Cool bike, although a touch gaudy. Only an Italian bicycle could pull this off and tbh I'm not sure it really does. Wonder how much he has the reserve set at.

and with 80 odd views and 5 replies it should have the tills ringing at RB towers (well, every little helps). Admittedly I can't take credit as Elev12K had already outed it but I missed that!

As far as gaudy, well it is italian and I have never seen anything gaudy, brightly coloured, ostentatious needless or nasty coming out of italy before..... :lol:
