This is a hypothetical question because God knows that I don't have the time or the means (money) to buy another frame as I have 5 build projects starting up- one of which has already started, and the rest soon to start. Still, I can see another frame down the road, some time around the end of the year so maybe so I guess it is not such a hypothetical question after all. Anyhow, I have been wanting a new '08 or '09 Look 585 Ultra for a long time to add to the stable. But a frame that I have always lusted after is available in the classifieds. It is a used '06 Fondriest Top Carbon TF1 Evoluzione. That frame used to be the one frame that I have always, always, always wanted- back in the day!! So now one is available, should I? Could I?

What would you do if a frame (insert your choice here) that was your ultimate frame at one time and it is now no longer made (and now by today's standards, may not be the creme de la creme anymore) became available (which rarely occurs)? Would you get it? Or would you get the newer frame that you have been eyeing for a while and that frame is probably better, definitely lighter, and has warranty support? BTW, they would cost the same. If I had the means, I think I would get the TF1.

imagine yourself awhile down the road, and you didn't get it... will you be kicking yourself? pissed?

I suppose you could always get it, and if it turns out you don't want it, sell it
FTF, the major obstacle is the dinero, or lack there of. We are in the process of moving to Portland and we plan to rent out our house and buy a house in Lake Oswego. Down payments, moving costs, renovation/fix-up cost to our current house, etc. leave us with very little to play with. I could possibly swing it if I got rid of the Colnago but I want to keep that as much as I want the TF1.
