ViperZ, I love the stem on our Tuscany. Simple and elegant. Where'd you find that, and who makes it?
I did a google search for "carbon cadence stem" and the only thing that comes up is this thread.
What's up with the new wheels? Did you get rid of the campys?
You origionally commented that you didn't like the plasitc shifters. Did they surpass expectation once you got them on?
I've never liked the lightspeed bikes until this thread. Very nice.
I know this may be a bit tacky (but that's what BF is all about), would you mind at least giving a range of what everything cost you?
I had purchased it from a lead I received on BF. I sent an email to Jon at cadence cycles and he showed me this stem which was just in production at the time. If you would like I can get you his email. They listed it on the cadence cycle site for a short time, however I don't see it there anymore.
Also check the Specialized site, as they have a stem that looks very similar.
I think I have come to accept the levers. Sure I wished they were pure carbon, but then I wish for a lot of things too
Thanks on the bike. It would be hard to say at this point as I have added this and that, however I would guess about $5200, 2 seasons ago when I first finished it. It wasn't cheap due to all the hand picked parts.
I'm sure it's in this thread but.... what lights are those?
In your avitar, is that a L&M Vega?
Housing costs here are through the roof! Good thing I no longer have to worry about that
What I'm really waiting to see is the cost parity on big component electronics.... The Canadian prices need to be as low as the US units, seeing as the dollar is the same. Use to be the cost difference was hidden in exchange, duies, taxes and shipping.
Here is the music deemed appropiate for your new bike. Did you know the Lady Liberty also plays violin? Your bike inspired me to find this! Enjoy!
Im currently building an 03 tuscany aswell. I unfortunetly dont have yr budget but im still interested in some stuff that yr build has.
Could u pls give me a complete list of yr components.
That Record carbon group looks great on the ti fram but its bit out of my league.
Very nice bike, hope mine will look that good when complete
thx in advance.
ViperZ. I know this is an old thread, but I had a question since I'm building up a 55cm Tuscany as well. How do you like the 40mm fork rake? Some guys on on another forum were changing theirs out for 43mm fork rake forks because they said that the Tuscany was unstable at high speeds with the 40mm fork? Any comments?
