Beauty :beerchug: !!!

The 202's balance well with the small steel tubes.

And, finally, a bike from CippoForLife for people under 6'3'' ;) .

That's the most dreadful embarrassment of a bike frame that I have ever seen. How is it that Cyfac are putting their name on a fillet brazed stainless steel frame?

Great choose of wheelset. I think they match perfectly with frame.

Funny statement. British humor I guess....or just an opinion ?

You probably know Cyfac can do just about anything in steel, alloy or carbon.

Oh! Their lugged steel frames are in the vintage section.
You can order a lugged XCR frame if you want ;)

I wouldn't want a lugged stainless steel frame anymore than I would want a fillet brazed stainless steel frame ... but I would love a welded one. Who on earth gave this set of tubes to someone who isn't clever enough to TIG weld?

Do you find that you are irritable and angry a lot of the time? Do you have a general dissatisfaction with life?

thought so :thumbup:

If you want to disagree with someone's opinion, that's fine. But posts like yours are plain silly.

Hmmm. lets see - A Cyfac employee ordered them from columbus so i expect a courier or postman delivered them.
I'm sure that the frame builders at Cyfac are more than capable of Tig welding what ever they want - in fact Cyfac were one of the first companies to develop Tig welding for alloy frames years ago.

"If you want to disagree with someone's opinion, that's fine. But posts like yours are plain silly"
Likewise :beerchug:

LOL, love the reactions, thanks for sticking up for us :)
As mentioned, Cyfac can do ANYTHING.
In fact, we are starting a lugged Vintage design with a new customer right this week!
This one was a special finish request for a very happy fellow.

Best,
Mike
