In all seriousness those headtubes are really small. Seen one in person and most people will need a spacer or two...6 may be a stretch :lol: Looks like Cipo designed the bike for himself. Anybody else who wants to ride it buck up and good luck ;)

Even pros are using 1-2 spacers on these frames.

But the Cipo frame there is not a freak, just badly fit by the shop. Which should be a crime as those framesets are not cheap.

If you have not read the BikeSnobNYC write up on the Shark saddle, you really need to head over to his blog. It is one of his best entries ever.

Surely there would be some front end flex in that Cipo?

I would be seriously embarrased to ride that Cipo bike, what would you say to your mates 'yeah, really stiff front end...'

I know that its a pro's bike (Tom Zirbel) but that steerer tube is horrible.

I hope they plan on trimming it.
