Ok, lets try this one again.

This is a carrera karma, not many of this ones moving around and not many carreras around either. This frame is 100% made in italy, round to oval tubes ALA columbus max but with oversize carbon tubing. Sadly it is tad big for me and since I barely ride it, it is time again to see if can get to a good home.

I'm not including the fork because the paint cracked in both fork blades (izumi forks are way too light)... just in the joint of the crownfork and the blades so took it out and replaced it by another fork to ride it. I'm sure the fork is not cracked at all and is just the paint that cracked but rather keep the fork here forever just in case, someday will sand the paint off to check this one out.

The frame is in excellent condition, no cracks, no dents, no scratches, no nothing.

This is what I call a do it all frame, quite versatile, the frame wont go anywhere at the time of a sprint or climb, it will just do it, italian stuff.

Size: 56 center to top by 55ish top tube. Front tube is 16 cm.

There's enough room for 25s tires, no idea if 28s will because i have nothing that wide here to test but the 25 mm tubbies I have fit just fine with room to spare.

Headset, cane creek seatpost shim for 27.2, carrera seatpost clamp and FD clamp are all included.

Asking 300 shipped and insured, ideal for a high end beater :D

Pictures look like pale.. it is the picture ok? the clear coat is perfectly smooth and shiny.
