Chain caused that nick on the front derailleur...As for the skewers, they are fragile and could break easily if its clamped on to tightly...one of the mechanics at my bike shop snapped one already luckily I had an extra set..

CheerS! :D

1. got it brand new (frame only) dirt cheap...did not have the budget for a 585 at that time...
2. monocoque frame very stiff but not that comfortable compared to a lugged frame...
3. unique LOOK in terms of design :D , and you don't see to many... :lol:

I know...frame is a bit heavy compared to its cousins....I was surprised at the weight myself when the bike shop guys decided to weight it on their hanging scale...was expecting around low to mid 16's...Thanks!!
