I bought my Pinarello track frame from this person. Her name is Kathy Nieves and she is a track racer in Florida. The frame did not sell on ebay so I made an off ebay offer and got the frame with no problem. She was very helpful and friendly. I think she is a small outlet of used parts for her track friends. The private feedback thing is her husbands idea because of the things he sells.
