    The sticker thing is kinda cheapo (IMO), its like putting decals on your car so cops can identify it.

    Is it possible to take off what says ZIPP on those rims?
    Yes, his bike is very nice


    Here are some udates from last weeks night ride

    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?

    Thanks!

    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 still use the Campagnolo Eurus wheels, They are my crappy weather, long distance, century ride wheels.

    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.

    The head light is a Dinotte XLS Extreme System (2x600L). The tail light is a Dinotte 140L







    My Thread About it is Here










    The light used in my avatar is a Planet Bike, Alias HID

    Thanks! I'll get in contact with them. The Specialized stem does look quite similar, as does the new Zipp carbon stem. Nice organic shapes.

    For American readers, that's about $47,000 in U.S. currency.

    EDIT: Aw crap, the loonie keeps falling, now we're almost at par with the greenback. Okay, scratch that joke.
    The pleasure is momentary, the position ridiculous, and the expense damnable.

    It's funny as we use to always express USD as more money.


    "I paid $200 USD for that"


    Now adays it's

    "I have to pay $200 USD for that" ... Wait, thats par or cheaper

    I like it!

    The market will correct, just as it always has. I'm waiting for that day. Then we'll sell the house and move...

    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!

    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?
