Thanks.


I bought the frame from this guy http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170980377697 , (but outside ebay at much better price) ;-)

25mm definitely does fit as that's what I am using now

What makes you think that Bottecchia don't outsource their production? Especially when you consider this frame is a monocoque. NTTAWWT!

Beautiful? Not to my eyes. Striking? Yes.

Beautiful build! You definitely don't see those every day. It has a nice combination of the "Italian flare" with the colors and frame styling but doesn't scream look at me! :lol: Let us know how it rides.

Nice to see something different. Looking forward to your comments on how it rides (frame as well as the Farsports).
