    Are the Novas and the 9 Speeds made by the same factory? While both are very nice, they seem to have different (fabrication) styles to me.

    Looks like the Downtube Novas have been reduced to $299 (from $329). I probably shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, but am wondering why the price was lowered. Perhaps clearing out the 2013...

    I'm betting the Bahamas have some great, year-round cycling weather. I'd be curious to see the company owner's personal Downtube...how its been customized, etc. Any chance of a pic? :ride:

    Since you'll have the camera out, how about snapping a photo of the company CEO's personal bike. It's always interesting to see how the producer of a product (bike or otherwise) customizes it. :)
