Very nice indeed but as you say deep pockets or a very friendly bank manager.

A friend here bought an Egli Vincent about 6 years ago and it spent 9 of the 12 months warranty period in a workshop and until he decided to rebuild the whole thing from ground up he had a never ending series of problems. He said to me a couple of years back that he regretted the day he ever saw one.

I think you'd have more fun and fewer reliabity problems with this one

While the Eglis do look a bit fiddly with a fair bit of untidiness of detail about them (look at that mass of coloured hoses, exposed cables and wiring!), they're prolly a blast to ride. But at nearly US$35,000 it can sit and be pretty to look at in someone else's garage.

Note that it's been removed from eBay just now.

Whatever people say, I would love to have one.
Egli frame had a very good reputation.
35K is way more than what my wife will let me spend on a bike (we could buy new appliances and have a cleaning lady for the next 2 years for the same price). Very Happy

Tigers Vincent is a bit like that wires and fuel/oil lines every where. He has said that its a really something to ride but has so many problems. If I paid $41000 for a bike I would be less than impressed if it had continuing problems like his.

How does that work? Give the appliances to the wife and you take the cleaning lady..............?

When women say something like that, is not permission. It's a threat, you do and you'll be sorry. Very Happy Very Happy
