hey tron - chromie (52cm)Spirito
Aug 28, 2002 12:48 AM
saw a Rossi frameset (columbus aelle) in 52cm on recycled cycles site.

looks kind of neat but hard to tell from the pic. dont know much about the maker but the chrome with blue decals fits in with your vision.

was $250 ... now $200 .... might be a nice buy for a fixie project (i would try a little haggling) but then again trexlertown aint too far away.

ciao

Much appreciated, but after setting up the other chromie and putting some wheels on it to get an idea of how it will look, ride, I'm getting the impression that the rake of the fork will not give the precision I need for heavy duty city slicing. A lot of times I make last second decisions and I want the steep fork rake of a track bike. I know I can get a differnet fork and all, but I don't want to play with the angles of the bike. Plus I don't want to deal with the rear spacing if I'm getting track wheels. I'm going to wait for trexlertown and try to get a frame and fork combo. Plus I like the looks of a track specific frame. Eventually you'll see the pista on ebay and I think that chromie miata is going back as well, or maybe I'll just wait for trexlertown and sell the combo I have setup already. Thanks for lookin out for me Spirito.
