    On the road, Diquigiovanni is riding them and I think an Italian Pro Continental team; maybe Miche?


    On the cross scene, I've no idea, but they're one of the winningest brands on the circuit.

    That Guercotti is coming along very nicely. Only thing is the green tires. Look kinda iffy. But if it makes you happy go for it.

    Hello all. First post. Installed the new fork yesterday.

    Only after looking at these pictures do I notice that my saddle looks very nose-down. But it's where I ended up being most comfortable after adjustments.

    Paolo Guerciotti. He still owns the company. Lenard Zinn did a story about his visit to the factory on VeloNews. You should search it. They're all still made in Italy, including my cheapo.

    Those are my road racing tires. I'm still debating whether to take them off and use those carbon wheels as 'cross wheels.

    Wow the Ridley, Guerciotti and the Schwinn are all drool inducing for different reasons.
    can the owners comment on how much each one weighs fully dressed?

    Here are my humble steeds......

    Bacon, those are some really nice pictures, and a great bike.

    Also, TMonk, and everyone else... You don't HAVE to quote the post with a ton of pictures, as that will just drag along a single page.

    I realize I'll take some flak for my bike but I don't give a crap I love it and even thou it's been posted before I have made some updates so reposting it again. Some background I choose something to take me back to my childhood as I feel like such a kid when I'm on it. Therefore I choose a colour combination that reminded me of my childhood favorite, Hot Wheels, I love it and gives me tons of happyness from just looking at it to the comments I recieve while out riding it which have always been wow!
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    On the front rim, you can barely see that small Kangaroo decal, so I'm guessing they're Velocity Aeroheads.

    PM or email if there's something you want me to review or if you want to submit something -that'd be cool. I kinda suck at writing. Better rider than writer!

    Thanks for the quick reply! Are these available in Europe or US market only? Had a quick look at their website but did not find the answer to that
