Definitely nice looking bikes. Interesting business decision not to post prices because each bike is custom. Kinda puts a roadblock up for me, but I do wish you the best in your endeavor.

Agree
No good has ever come from social media. Prefer web pages if possible


Just saw a website posted, but still no fan of FB, Instagram, snapchat , Twitter

I agree, even if prices were set in the euro we would easily be able to convert based on the current rate in the USA or whatever other country. The bikes all look top shelf.

I'm not sure what is going on with anyone getting directed to FB or elsewhere, when I click on the link it takes me to Elite Velo's website.

As far as pricing, Elite responded to that in their intro thread stuck at the top of the GD section...

Most of the questions in my inbox are concerning pricing for frames.
There are no prices listed online due to the fact that each product is custom tailored to ones individual needs in a host of options. This, coupled with the ever changing euro, please feel free to email me regarding.

They do look top shelf.

I certainly understand that. That's their decision for their business model. However, while the info is obtainable, it is a barrier for some (like me!). But definitely nice looking stuff...

My pleasure. Many thanks to everyone taking a look. My primary goal was to field questions via email since each frameset carries options that may or may not suit each individual. My goal is to bring attention to Marco's exquisite work to the states while helping someone obtain their dream bike so to speak. While all of Legend's frames are considered boutique with the likes of Sarto and Passoni, they are priced higher than off the shelf standard frames. It is not my intention as a small business to be priced higher than my competitors offering the same product. With the current euro, many folks tend to be buying from the UK as the British Pound favors the USD. This being said, I will match prices as best as I can for those offering the same products for everyone wanting to buy in the US.

Many have asked why I only sell Campagnolo. This was just a business decision based on personal preference to keep the Italian theme in place. I can offer full groupsets at mail order pricing should one decide on a frame.

Thanks again for everyone's support!
