La Roue D'or is what i'll be on if I can sell the last of my bikes and parts before I fly early next week. I gotta raise some coin for obligatory Mai Tai's upon arrival (as one does). If'n ya wanna help send the interested parties my way .....

CR listmember prices are .... $325 for the said Vitus "La Roue D'or" $875 for the Pinarello

Too late for me to box and ship - ask a fellow lister & I can drop it to them in Manhattan or Brooklyn or to a bike shop of your choice. Me just wants the cash;-)

With regard to the La Roue D'or decal, I dunno ... it says in smaller type "cycles" which ain't much of a clue. The frameset is like every other 979 ive seen and the parts ain't all original (methinks) 'cept for the maillard hubs and the Mavic? headset. Looks cool though.

ciao,
