I'm so tempted to buy this but I really only need three bikes right now (and I have 5) so I'll pass this on. Seller is located in San Anselmo/Fairfax area. He sent me high res pics, bike looks very clean.

Paint has some scratches as is expected from normal wear.

Mechanically excellent; “Top of the Line” parts that are all fully functional. Reliable Dura Ace component gruppo, recently serviced. Brake cables were replaced and adjusted.

Very durable bicycle with an extremely smooth, quiet and stable ride. Ride has incredible stability at all speeds.
