Looking forward to seeing your build....this is my first introduction to Victoria Cycles frames. I checked out the link you provided and their work appears to be top notch, but wondering if the rock bottom prices listed are real. The current price for they Veloce frames is only 1340 € (about $1475 US)...is that correct?

Interesting choice of frame, I like the difference. They seem to run their top tubes very high up the head tubes. Not sure Dario would approve!
