    That's even worse, because there's a goddam tubing brand sticker right on the frames which says exactly what it is. People...f'ing pathetic.

    Anyone who doesn't know how instrumental Tom Ritchey was to the development of modern bikes and tubing, first through his use of brazing on oversized tubes, and then through his development of Logic...

    You're Italian in what sense? I've never heard that expression; in what context do you hear this idiom, and what do you think it means?

    I don't know which scenario you're running in your head, but here in the real world, although you're using the correct words, they're arranged in a cockamamie order which makes you sound daft.

    Skepticism about Breezer's claims is utterly baseless and unfounded, if in fact it's the same "skepticism" (and I use the term very loosely) that you've tried to explain before.

    No, BB86 is very broadly usable (incl. OS spindles), but does require a different tool kit than the old threaded standard, which may legitimately put some off, though I think it's not a big deal in...

    If there's a more modern and racier steel frame than a Breezer Venturi, I've not seen it. I have one and love it; stiff, responsive, and razor-sharp handling.

    How often do frames and forks fail? Rarely to hardly ever, would be the answer. It's a silly metric to focus more on.

    I've ridden a Xenon equipped rental bike in Italy a few years ago, but I do not recall exactly. I think it did, but hopefully someone will chime in with a definitive answer.

    I decided on IRC Roadlite 23c tires, which I found on Amazon for $129 shipped. Not terrible, I reckon, though I could have refreshed the Ones for a little less. I am just more interested in trying...

    True, the guys with the bad-assed, man-crush quote tattoos usually do better at parties where "dude, you're a blast!" is the highest form of praise. I do keep the venerable...

    Yeah, for sure...I hear what you're saying. For me, it's so close that I can see spec'ing in an extra 4mm in TT and DT lengths without any adverse affects. Were we talking a larger, more...

    I'd change my selection a touch to avoid overlap were I going custom-built.

    The term you're looking for is "front-center". :)

    Lots of geo tables list it, but if it doesn't, using 79pmooney's "wheelbase minus chain stay" metric will derive the needed number against which...

    I was going to say Front Center is the dimension we want, but I didn't know what that number should be, or how to calculate it. Seeing your comment that FC is basically wheelbase minus chain stay, I...

    He doesn't have an intense hatred of Lance, but rather for a system, and its apologists, supporters, and the idiot fans which let a thing like Lance happen.

    I'm 225 and ride a 20" wheeled Dahon Mariner fitted with 1.25 tires on crappy Michigan roads, and I don't worry about it. I don't think you should, either. I don't know that the 24" wheeled models...
