Over all I'm very impressed. They failed on me twice, but that is because I carelessly ran over large pieces of glass that cut them wide open. I've used them on my track (though they are a little too expensive to be skidding on), and my road bike. They are really light too for a long distance tire. Great for road bike touring.

    I'm going to get the regular Fusions next time (becasue they are like 10g lighter!). Still, at the super light weight of the Fusion Long Distance, they are amazing! I keep buying them.

    Ok well tomorrow it is. Laziness won out tonight. I might be going to Dance Cave tonight. Woot. There are many reasons why that is a good thing. None of these reasons have anything to do with college girls. Oh wait maybe they do.

    The rossin is amazing. Think if I owned it I’d hang it on the wall half the time & ride it the other half of course.
    Super sexy.

    Just one question. Since you are running it brakeless, why don't you use the original Rossin fork? That fork is hands down the nicest riding, stiffest track fork I have ever had. And it matches the paint scheme. Not that it doesnt look hot...but it would be hotter with the Rossin fork.

    I have one on my Aluminum Rossin that I don't want to part with. I would wager that La Bicicletta has a NOS one that someone replaced with a carbon drilled. Unicrown straight blade with Columbus MAX tubing....very nice. I cant get my pics sized small enuf or I would post a pic for ya.

    I think I'll get in on the question and answer session with Keith Keith, was there any Newcastle left on Friday? If so, go ahead and toss 'em in the fridge and have a couple. Maybe save me a couple too though, I might need to grab one if I'm having a tough day

    Dear Sirrobin and Shimbot,

    Thanks for your hospitality today. And putting up with the most inefficient mechanical work ever. I can't help being clumsy. Hope you enjoyed the cookies.

    The cookies were good, but bring money next time. We are trying to run a business here!

    Ideally i'd like a 15.5T but I don't think that's possible Runing a 42t Front with 15 is a bit heavy (75)especially on longer rides with rolling hills. However 16t seems TOO easy as that's 70 GI.

    I don't want to change out my front chainring

    This ad is comical: http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/280476993.html
    " i'm selling it for only 350$ any bike shop or professional will tell u it's worth much more."
