I bid on that bike, too. I really just wanted the frame, but I thought that the build was very good I'd probably go with a Nitto Technomic stem.bigman said:Was looking around for a sport touring rig to use as a commuter - and found this all built up with new components, yet to try it out. Brooks will probably get mounted and can't imagine the stem will stay - but will give it a try.
Good looking bike, it looks like your user name is correct that is a tall bike!bigman said:I have a technomic in a box, going to give this a whirl, suprised it went for so little as the components alone are worth twice what I paid. The drivetrain, brakes and wheels areas new and work flawlessly. If not for the lock bracket which twisted the decals the frame is in great shape. I will keep my eyes open for a frame for you, if inerested PM me I know someone who was selling something similar in South Carolina. i was local to the seller and was able to pick the rig up.
