I read up on there and another forum quite a bit before dropping the loot on one. There really isn't any bad I read about them besides someone saying my was so and so grams heavier then what it stated. But durability and quality and fit were great. I didn't build it up as I don't have alot of the little speciality tools to install the cranks/bb and never setup up brifters before so I let someone else build it up. He said he didn't have any issues and everything went together perfectly. I just had some decals made up in a retro panel style with my last name. I'm still debating on them but their easily removable and don't leave any residue.
As for the ride. It's the first time I rode on a carbon bike so it's hard to say as I have a newer decent aluminum frame and some vintage steel also. The builder took it out to test it out and said it rode fine. He just built a Wilier and a Kestrel and races for a local store on Cannondales so he's around some high quality stuff and was really surprised how nice it was for so cheap. I've got $1500 into it and tips the scales at 16.7 lbs. I'm still debating on the full carbon saddle if I like it or not. lol. It's a bit on the stiffer side. :lol:

This is my 1970's childs mini Flandria road bike. The bike is the same size as the orange bikes the little boy is holding in the original Flandria catalog photos. It was made for 3-5 year old kids. It's a real bike with 16" tires and is just like the bigger bikes but evrything is smaller.

Before: old Benotto frame, thought about repainting the frame, but it has a really nice glov, eventhough it's scrathed.

After: single speed road bike. really fast. Found a nice second hand "San Marco" seat that mached the colors.

Here are a couple of Schwinns. I seem to have 'stem-shifter itis' with these two, not a shifter location that is much in style anymore. (Also, 'safety lever itis')
A Kool Orange Sport Tourer, circa 1971 and





a 70's Chrome Paramount, the touring model. Gotta get that Paramount on the road this summer....not gonna use sew ups, though......
