Sprints are still sensible money (10 grand) compared to 20 grand for a Tiger or £70'000 for an RS1600. They're the only Dolomites that don't look like an under wheeled old maid's special.
They're not even properly that yet. Those that are, are white room seller type ones and chancers. The real market at the moment is around the £5k to £6k mark. Breadvan had his up for £7k, then reduced to £6k. I saw the other day that he eventually did sell it (after quite a few months) and took an offer on it.
However it won't stay like this forever, as they're on the rise (albeit slowly still) and starting to become more desirable. Hence if I'm going to get one, I need to get one now really.
