Wow... they are nice frames. Is there an Aussie importer?
My steamroller has become a bit meh.... Would like a new 'poseur' frame...

new one currently on ebay and it is a 53cm (either 52 or 54cm according to the Cinelli) (if it was a 56cm I would be tempted) http://cgi.ebay.com.au/New-Demo-Cinelli-Gazzetta-Frameset-/270686889526 otherwise Wiggle around $570 + $60 shipping or PBK $530 + $40 shipping

only thing im a bit weary about is the fork

wouldn't a lugged fork be better looking and stronger?

(maybe its just me being fussy)

Personal preference I suppose... but I guess I prefer the traditional geometry & proportions of the Gazetta over the Vig.

Oohh... Wiggle has the Gazetta for 630 AUD!

A 60cm in green, thanks very much...

I'm seriously considering buying one

What I'm unsure about at this stage is how well it will stand up to the rigours of the track, as that's what I'll be using it for. It definitely seems like they've targeted it squarely at street fixie riders

HMM

http://www.probikekit.com/display.php?code=J0095 $530 at pbk plus use code extra10aus for another 10% off. http://cgi.ebay.com.au/CINELLI-GAZZETTA ... 022wt_1141 .
Its a fixed street bike not a track hence the bottle mounts.

I'm a street rider who rides with brakes so I like the fact it's drilled fron & rear for calipers. No pretense about riding track from me... but I do like the idea of something lighter, more nimble and better finished than my present show pony Steamroller. Before I kitted out my daily rider workhorse FG Ricardo conversion (Tange 900 DB Cro Moly) with its racks & guards,I realised what brick the Steamroller is.

I'd like to drop the deep Vs for something lighter as well.

Interesting that the PBK pages makes a note that their stock is arriving sans the bottle mounts. It's something I'd want.

mine was epic it is a little harsher than old steel but the carbon fork helps a lot,
It was its geometry that was the best i had it with risers mine was a 2010 from pbk,
It was about $610 at my door you will love it i sold mine to fund my llewellyn build.
