Thats another lovely machine Nick :thumbup: ive noticed that you and the Tart are now riding the Ambrosio rims and he is raving about them, are they that good? Im sure my next frame will be a Baum i think they are fantastic looking bikes.
Enjoy the ride

:beerchug: guys.

They would be very happy to have you on one Roobay, especially given the stable of bikes it would be joining.

As for the Ambrosio, I really rate them. Had my Powertap wheelset laced up to them too. Double eyelets, easy to mount tyres, great braking track. Seriously, hard to fault them. Thinking of another set on the new Chris King Campag hubs. But that'll have to wait for a little while...

I just wish they made them with a wider rim bed, that would be the jam.

Are you guys talking about the Nemesis rim or the clinchers?

Mine are the clincher.

If I had the guts to run tubs a set of Nemesis would be unreal.

The Ambrosio's suit it better I think, but very nice regardless

Nick, I was wondering whether it was possible for you to put up the geometry of this frame?
Is it exactly the same as your ristretto?

Look like Excellight SSc to me. I have these with PMP hubs, they are great rims.

They are indeed Excellite rims, rate them highly. PMP also made very handy hubs too. Don't see many of them around my part of the world. Had my front wheel for my Powertap wheelset laced to one, smooth as silk.

Geo isn't the same as my Ristretto. What were you interested in specifically?
