My thoughts exactly. I'm 240# right now, end of summer 210#. And it's drive-side, so there's the additional torque involved. But, I'm not a frame builder. Speaking of which, wonder if I should have...

Off-white pearlescent. Not all that different from the seat tube color on the originals (with the exception of the pearl).

Uh-oh. I'd better tell the painter to hold off applying and NOT to clear-coat it yet.

Thanks!

Thanks! I really don't have anything against the 'magenta' and white, but this one was repainted once, apparently with a can of cardinal red Krylon and had chips galore. But no, I won't painting it...

Stay away from chiro's if you've got any nerve issues. For muscular-skelatal issues, maybe, but discs pressing on nerves don't need to be tweaked, twisted and cajoled.

LOL! That's funny. Sad, but funny.

He should do what he does best and stick to criticizing fellow American TdF winners and leave the 'bents to the bent.
