Thanks. The frame is very good. stiff, connected yet smooth and comfortable. the handling is good with the ritchey wcs fork

Of course I'm a fan. I always liked lancia delta rally cars. They are so good and gorgeous.

Since I'm italian it is like normal that I like italian design. Always loved it and always will in bene e in male. Nothing better IMO although i really like german cars too.

Hello nice bike. I know you wrote in your description that you customised those bottle cages yourself but what bottle cage did they start off as originally? How do they grip the bottle now? Weight? Thanks.

wassup. thanks dude. They started off as Tacx Tao silver cages and transformed into what you see with lots of dremeling and after helbow grease for the polishing :lol:

They now weigh 22 grams not including bolts. I never lost any bottles and god knows how bumpy it is over here. The beauty is that its alu so doesn't crack.

Sure it does. Only lasts a bit longer. Mine gave up after 3 years, both in 2 weeks time.

Dude unless you crashed with them I could understand that they crack. that's kinda obvious.

I don't see how they can crack with normal use unless your an animal putting your bottles back in.

These cages are 2 years old now with lots of use. the way they are now, i've been using them for about 6 months and its all good.

Hey, Ferrarista, watch out throwing names about :sick: . Hope your cages 'll last forever but if you have the same quality roads over there as we have here in Liege province, you 'll see what I mean sooner or later (as said, hope the latter :wink: ). Learned on another forum that this cracking was more common.

:lol: sorry about the animal thing. Its just an expression not saying your that really. I hope the cracking will not happen but even if it does the cages are so inexpensive that its not a problem. thanks for the heads up
