Masterpiece :thumbup: And one with a decent amount of seatpost showing, even with traditional geo and smallish frame size.

@terrible1,
My particular frameset comes with a 1" threadless Tommasini Air fork.
As what Lemond75 mentioned, you are given options for threaded or threadless.
I currently have a Thomson 1 1/8 to 1" shim in black installed on the steerer since I'm using a 1 1/8" PRO Vibe 7s stem.

@Lemond75,
Nice Casati!
I guess you're really into steel frames, lol!
Btw how much do you weigh, and how would you compare the EPS to your Tecno?

@KCookie,
Unfortunately LW Ventoux is in Tokyo and the Tecno is approx 3000 miles away! :(

@Delorre,
I think the seatpost is probably a tad too long :o

Maverick_1: I'm 74kg at the moment (after the inevitable Christmas overindulgence!) and I'd say that both the EPS and Tecno are great bikes. Whilst the acceleration of the EPS is better and it is of course lighter, the Tecno is so incredibly smooth and quiet to ride, and the fact that it is made to measure means that the comfort and handling are fantastic.

It was because I enjoyed the Tecno so much that I decided that my next bike would be another custom made frame rather than something from one of the mainstream brands. I've not ridden a stainless frame before but have always really liked what Casati do, especially when it comes to steel, and like Tommasini, it gives me the chance to buy a made to measure handmade bike from a small company with a fantastic reputation, and in doing so, ending up with something quite rare if not unique.
