|I have an opportunity to purchase a near new Coppi Columbus Neuron frame and fork from a bike shop. Does anyone have experience with the Coppi line and, in particular, this bike?|

|But I do know Coppi is a well respected high-end frame builder. I own an Italian Neuron steel frame and I like it very much. It's an "old school" small-diameter tubed frame like the one your looking at and it rides smooth and comfortable. It's better suited for the long haul than say stomping in a crit but I find mine plenty stiff. (me #155)
The Coppi frame and fork is priced around $900. This seems a reasonable price for a new frame made of this material. $700 would be a bargain if new.
Of course you know not to buy, bargain or no, if the frame doesn't fit or you don't like the ride.
