That one ended up selling for around $2k frame set only and was a 54 (I’ve ridden it and know the owner, turned it down because I had just picked up a Great Divide). Will be interesting to see what this one fetches.

Never seen it before and I know most of the Prontos in the area. Makes me wonder where Piermont got it from and if it is the same one they’ve mis measured

Aha. I was going to say, I didn't think I had seen one this big come up for sale before.

I'd double check the details and ask any question you think about BEFORE bidding....I've bought two things from this seller over the last 5 years and BOTH had issues.

One was a frame that came with a NDS bottom bracket cup absolutely frozen in the frame....and of course the pics didn't show that side of the frame, nor was it mentioned in the listing. their response "oh, we didn't notice that when we stripped it down....just unthread it, and you can keep it, we won't charge you." It took my LBS soaking it in penetrating oil for a week and a 6ft long breaker bar to bust it free. Then the seller gave me heat for trying to return it.

Second was a pair of carbon clinchers that just happened to delaminate on the 2nd ride. Shame on me for buying used carbon clinchers, but I find it hard to believe they didn't notice before they sold it.

Caveat emptor......

I bought one of these secondhand super cheap shortly after they came out and it might be the best bike I've ever owned. It can ride like a cross bike, it can ride like a road bike, it's durable, it's cheap enough. I plan to ride it until it dies.

I've been in that shop multiple times. They have a regular bike shop and an ebay shop out back in another part of the same building complex. I've talked with the ebay guys a few times. They always seem stressed and like they are moving a lot of product. The people who work there are nice. I've only interacted with the owner once, but it wasn't a good interaction.

agreed. it's pretty clear to me, having been there that the actual bike shop and the ebay selling arm operate pretty independently. the ebay side also appears to sell a lot more than just bike stuff. audio equipment, photog stuff, etc.

even though it's attached to the bike shop, i dont get the impression the ebay store is really operated by bicycle professionals.
