Tom,

I was wondering, do you know info about this frame not mentioned in the auction description? I ask because I can't see where he says Zeus dropouts - or even anything like a close-up of the dropouts. From the distance of the only photo showing the dropouts it's hard to say, but I'd bet Campy. Of course anyone who's seen it up close has a much better chance of getting it right than I do!

Sure wish the seller had included more info. Like a top tube length for a bare minimum. I'd show it to my wife it were her TT length - 51 is just right frame size for her and she's sortof in the market.

Also love how he includes "Cinelli" in the auction title, shows photos of the Cinelli bars and stem, then mentions that, oh yeah, you don't get those (or anything Cinelli), it's just keyword spamming.

Sorry about the nitpicking. I'm not saying the seller is dishonest, many many people do the keyword spamming thing, and the frame is a beaut.
