I honestly don't know a ton about this bike, kazane appears to be a smaller maker centered somewhere out of VA but I believe he closed down at some point so the information I can find online is pretty limited. If the quality/type of bike is not suitable for this site I totally understand and will remove the posting if necessary.

This is a 56cm bike, definitely aluminum frame. It is sporting 10 speed SRAM Rival with a shimano wheelset. Frame is in good shape, with a few small knicks where the paint is chipped that I have shown in the pictures. Shifts good with no issues and I will make sure it's cleaned up before sending out.

Top tube measurement is 56 C-C, I don't have any other measurements at this time but will be happy to take them.

I would like to net 640 with the brooks saddle, or 550 with a standard saddle that I have laying around. It will have to be packed locally by the bike shop and I can mail it via your choice of carrier.

Yeah, they were based here in Richmond when they were producing. I've got a good friend with a white version of this bike, super light and very stiff. I'm unclear on where exactly they were produced, I've heard rumors here that they were made in RVA, but others have said Taiwan. whatever the case may be, its high quality craftsmanship for sure. I built up an identical 58cm frame for a customer about a year ago, I was wishing it had been a 60cm!

GLWS! These make killer crit bikes FYI!

Kazane is quite probably one of the oldest and most respected frame fabricators in Taiwan.

Kazane was run by Stratton Delaney when he was in Richmond. I have one of their track forks and a track crank. Anyway, he now runs Starlight bikes in Roanoke. I bet you could get more information from them, although you may end up leaving with one of their new steel bikes!

Kinda forgot about this for a bit, still available and would also be interested in trading for a 55/56CM frame depending on what it is.

Holiday bump, figured this would be a nice winter ride for someone.
