Its the right size for me, but is the price within reason?

I never knew that a bicycle frame could be bisexual, let alone be a particular sex in the first place. How do we tell? I checked underneath the bottom bracket on my bicycles and can't tell a difference...
If that's how you judge, Colnago's are female.:-) nmDave Hickey

Okay, seriously. Quite expensive, too bad EM never chromed those dropouts or forks. I cannot help you much. It is a custom build though, get the measurements from the seller and see if maybe it is a funky size. Check the fit closer.

But, a beauty nevertheless.

I had them leave the chrome on my repaint. The fork that is supposed to come with a Corsa 0.1 is chrome and the stays are chrome as well. I think it looks better with the chrome stays. Ignore the fork on mine though, I went carbon. Don't tell Eddy as I fear the repercussions!
The frame NEW was only @ $900 so this is a bit high for a used frameset with a fork that didn't come stock!

Nice ride. Reminds me of one that I saw at Hilly Hundred a few years ago that had the chrome rear stays, plus chrome headlugs and a flatcrown fork with the chromed crown. One spectacular bicycle.
Thanks...it's my fixed gear now.(nm)merckx56

Used steel framesets in 853 or other high quality steel can be had for $300 to $600. I paid $550 for my used Waterford, and that is far better than an orange Eddy frame. (IMHO)

Not a bad looking frame, but no chrome at all. A new Tommasini Sintesi has a fully chromed fork, lugs and rear triangle and a lot fancier paint. The Sintesi is only $900-1000.
