NoCom review on my Blog

www.bacchettaaero.blogspot.com

Went for a short 43 mile ride today on the NoCom speed machine.
I was most impressed.
More on my Blog...

Sweet bike. I don't think I'd get a NoCom, but a VK2 would sure be nice!

Whose NoCom is that, MG? Just by looking at the pic, that's the nicest one that I've seen.

That bike Dennis is owned by one of the designers of the NoCom. Look at the chain management system. The handle bar set up which will be changing when the New framesets come in. That bike is already old school man!
I know that Dana Liberman has total US rights to the bike but Chicago is where this bike came from and all updates to the frame that will follow are out of Chicago. I will not get into the Geo-political politics of this bike on my Blog just how it rides!
I will be on this bike a lot this season and will post.
But of course all Chicago lowboy NoCom riders will purchase there bikes from a Canadian dealer....

The only one like it Dennis. That's because the creators of the NoCom are from the Midwest of America.
Lots of Monkey mods on this baby Dennis. Drool on!
The ones sold out in Califoria are not like this one but soon will be.
Hey About 8 grand is into this baby if you want to buy one off of Dana.
I will be riding it all season Dennis. Wait till the new frameset updates hit!
I will post those on my Blog....

Hey now, I try to earn my keep here by helping people who have questions or are looking for opinions. I just post a link in my signature, I don't force anyone to click it, and I never post a link to my own site in an actual message.

As for your 'junk' comment, the failure rate on my bikes is no higher than any other bike.

So please, be civil. I'm a nice guy, I really am. Have a nice day.

MG,
The NoComs in CA will never resemble this one. Too many custom made components. In CA the NoComs are assembled with off the shelf parts and limited innovation. Energy robbing chain tubes are the norm for NoComs assembled on the west coast.

Custom steering on the NoCom3 will be the next change. It is also possible to incorporate faired front caliper brakes in in a future version. A front disc brake is not needed unless the bike is used for mountain road descents.

Like I said I don't get into the Geopoloitics of the bike. I just like NoCom-AA's very fine machine.
I will of course put up pictures at high resolution of the new bikes.
I here its soon and will be heading down to Lowboy headquarters for another ride.
Beware lowboys! I am used to the NoCom now so I think I can really throw some speed down on it. Maybe it will take a few more rides...
Of course this is all hobby stuff and no money in it other than the passion for going fast on a bicycle.
Good luck to Dana but his NoCom's are not Chicago NoCom's.....
Honestly Dennis I would love to own one of these bikes to add to my Aero but thats another matter that requires a lot of disposable cash which I need for other things at the moment. So I beg for rides. Its come to that I am afraid.....

It's spam dude.
I don't like it and do not see anyone else that manufactures bikes doing what you are doing.
Please send a couple of your models over to www.bentrideronline.com for review.
I am sure Bryan will look at them and give a review.

I also don't see any other manufacturers or resellers on here, offering free advice no matter what bike they're asking about. I've recommended other brands to people several times before.

As for sending a bike for review, I'd love to! The only problem is, I cannot afford to do so. I don't make nearly enough profit, to be able to send a bike for review and not get it back...

Now, I'm finished derailing this thread. Back to the NoCom!
