Where did you buy the frame? Do you think a 25mm tire would fit in the rear?
Thanks.


I bought the frame from this guy http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170980377697 , (but outside ebay at much better price) ;-)

25mm definitely does fit as that's what I am using now

I do not reserve the team 'beautiful' for many bikes. Eat your heart out anyone riding Far East crap.

What makes you think that Bottecchia don't outsource their production? Especially when you consider this frame is a monocoque. NTTAWWT!

Beautiful? Not to my eyes. Striking? Yes.

Beautiful build! You definitely don't see those every day. It has a nice combination of the "Italian flare" with the colors and frame styling but doesn't scream look at me! :lol: Let us know how it rides.

Nice to see something different. Looking forward to your comments on how it rides (frame as well as the Farsports).
