Hi: I have the details and images of the small Confente Pista bike in my files; however, I know the owner isn't selling and I'll have to ask his permission to share the images of his bike. I've not gotten any information on a strada bike in a 50 cm. size, although I know the whereabouts of some other smaller Confente road bikes, they are also not available for sale at present. The present eBay Confente bike is a beauty, although "defects" can be found in any work of art. The asking price is not at all unreasonable. Furthermore, although the current economic climate isn't good, many quality items will sell. George Hollenberg MD Confente.org
