Is it just me or is that a 650c front? No mention in the advert.

Or is it my eyes?

legendary - like that description. Got a number of frames that use a 700 / 650 combo - think these will go for decent monies.

pick up only may mean that he/she doesn't get "top dollar" - hubs alone would go for 250 plus in that condition..
on my watch list :P

Very valid point, however i've just spotted something - picture 4 out of the little ones underneath - that shell looks like it's split and isn't sitting properly....

Everyday is a school day and today I learnt something!

Good knowledge - my untrained eyes deceive me.

And both 700c - they are going to look tremendous to whoever gets them, they are very very nice indeed.

Hope you get them :)

Snap - bought two frames in the last week, nothing left for any further extravagance, which is a bit of a wounder given the quality of those wheels :roll:
