I have a Casati Laser with Genius tubing that has some similar bits - the TT routing exits (ferrules?) are the same, as well as the brake bridge. Mine has internal routing throughout, including the DT where the cables enter at the HT and then emerge under the BB and along the DS chainstay.

I love classic steel framesets with modern builds. The 22 sounds awesome, though I continue to have trouble with SRAM parts on my cx bike.

I have a mix of Force and Rival on my CX and i love that group. God knows, it has taken some beatings. But it just pushes through! I have owned the Red 2011 and 2013 so i am pretty sure i'm gonna like the Force22.
The communication was though, as there english where pretty bad and i often had to ask the same question several times. So for me to ask for internal routing throughout, was not even a think i would consider to ask for :)

As i they made custom stickers for my bad ass black MAX fork, i think i'm gonna keep it. But if the ride i to rugged. I might change it.

A fillet brazed steel frame is not 'well made'. People who aren't clever enough or do not have the skills to weld a frame these days still braze them. What a waste of an excellent set of tubes.

Did you just go with black then, or something more exciting?


I like the positive thinking of you two :lol:

A bit of saddle work before the frame, hopefully arrives tomorrow.
Just wanted to remove the red. I think i'll keep the white, but i'm not sure until it's on the bike.

Good work on the saddle.
I like your bike.
Even better with brick house and grungy wooden door background.
Too much dilemma for your back without spacers and -17 stem?

Thanks!

I think i'll throw the stem down a notch, but the 17 degree is probably a no-go. Sadly a have some lover back pain problems.

Looks great. Is the toptube level or slightly sloping? The oval tube is messing with my eyes.
