    By Jaegher, with a healthy helping of Campagnolo. Exceedingly splurt worthy. [IMG ALT="*"]http://www.cyclingforums.com/content/type/61/id/290480/width/500/height/1000[/IMG]

    Old family owned bike builder. 1,800 to 2,100 yuros for custom standard models. Seem to use carbon forks, unlike the model pictured above. Does the Columbus stainless and offers lugged and fillet brazed/welded construction.

    Seems to like Campy, so has good taste.

    Offers after sale service and repair, a big plus in just mentioning such stuff on a website these days. Must be a realist as frames do get pranged and repairs are sometimes possible even in this day and age of throwaway carbon (and I just threw a favorite one away, damnit!).

    I meant alienator's deal. You gettin' one or what.

    The geometry looks a little radical to me, though. Mine would have slacker angles, a low bb, about 48 mm of fork offset, and plenty of room for 27mm tubulars.

    It's just a beautiful bike, that's all. If you can't post pictures of beautiful bikes on a bike forum, where can you post them?
