@Bruiser:
How about editing your old posts when you want to update the listings? ;)
Much easier to maintain and faster to read.
Simply hit the Image button and you can edit your old posting.

Sure.
Can I help you add these items to the Listings section?
Could you also help me out with the Franks bikes page? It's been a long time since I did German.

Spada Stiletto Light 1280gm, 28/28 spokes, 18/18mm rims $650
good price to weight ratio
they are the most appealing since they can be used every day, and are very light. one question which hub do they use in the rear? the stella or the older version of their hub?

out of italian magazine "CICLISMO" where they did a whole test on these nice wheels.

Spada Stiletto 04
front wheel: 474g (24 spokes)
rear wheel: 606g (28 spokes)

that's 1080g for the pair!!

www.spadabikes.com


It's true.
This is the test
Italian Language :cry:
I posted the article as a "documentation" that these wheels are real!!
