    OMG that's awesome.

    superlight mediocre DT swiss shock? Check.
    Paired 16 spoke wheels? Check.
    Prostate relief saddle position? Check.
    THE BEST CRANKS EVER?! Check.
    Cheapo depot fork (with a bar lockout!!!)? Check.
    Paper mache tires? Check.

    This half-bike was pieced together by someone with enthusiasm, a spreadsheet, and no practical experience. Run.

    It's an older design chinese/taiwanese catalog frame. Not very expensive, and mostly likely a terrible choice. Anyone who can tell you tons about this frame has fallen down an unfortunate rabbit hole and is as suspect as the dude who put that monument to myopic weight weenie-ism together.

    What's to lose ?

    I mean without a chain, you can always take it out for a test roll.

    I've seen those 16-spoke bladed wheels on a few road bikes.....probably just a weight advantage thing. What's weird is why they're on that frame, as they're rim-brake specific.

    Don't know anything about the frame....just looks like those no name brand Chinese-made ones you'll find on E-bay, Amazon or Alibaba. If you can get it for cheap, I say pick it up and have fun

    So if the seller says Swiss, then he should tell you what brand it is, so you can look it up...

    well lest see, it doesn't have a chain, or a rear cassette... or a rear mech...or front mech...or shifters...or any brakes. The frame doesn't look like it has canti brake posts, the fork doesn't either, so those wheels wont work as they arn't disc brake hubs.

    Or are you just buying the frame and nothing else?

    Either way I wouldn't pay that for something I don't know what it is...sure it could be something nice, or it could be something garbage.
