|I love this frame:
First time buyer, so
1. Will it fit me? I'm 6 feet tall with a 29.5 inch inseam.
2. Can anyone provide futher info? I tried to Google it, but unfortunately Pinarello has a current frame with this name, so it was a bit much to sift through.
Thanks in advance!

|Personally, I would pass on the frame. They are nice. Nothing wrong with it. If you look around, you can usually find a nice Columbus SL frameset for under $200 a great many times on ebay. I picked up my Razesa with SL for $80. It is an awesome riding bike. if it is the paint that attracts you...look for one lower price and get it painted for $75-100. This is entirely my opinion though.
Some things to consider, the current price is the start price of $375, only 2 hours to go. make you think others had the same idea I did regarding it being a bit pricey. If it was a New paint job. I would say maybe. But it is only a touch up and decals put on. no headset or BB...Just some things to consider. It appears to be an 80s frameset in regards to age.
I am 6ft with a 34 in inseam if you use the book method of measuring frame. Put a book between your legs push up til it touches the pubic bone. mark the spot and measure. I ride a 58 or 59cm c-t bike and I consider that idea for me. If you are really 29.5...this might work with a longer stem. Hope this info helps.

|not your pants inseam. From tight in your crotch all the way to the floor. I'm 5-9 with a 32 1/4" inseam and this bike would fit me well. (and I would love it!)
It's more for someone with a love for the brand than just looking for a frame. The original paint is a plus and repainting would greatly decrease it's value. Not having the original fork has already put a big dent in the value.

|Sweet looking frame! -Isn't that the paintjob that was on Alexi Grewal's Pinarello when he won the '84 Olympic Road Race? I believe he beat Canadian Steve Bauer in a 2-up sprint following a long break. Must be good karma.|
