    It's still being bonded in Italy, but the tubes are made in Tiawan. Lapierre does the same thing with their whole carbon lineup.

    There are carbon products that the military buys that're made in Taiwan.

  5. Some final thoughts on my Fuji Altamira

    I'll be making the transaction to get my Lapierre Xelius to replace my valued steed "Raven". A 2012 Fuji Altamira that I won't list a number after due to the fact that the only components on it that...

    All hot, except the bars. But I think the stem is perfect.

    How do you like that saddle? I've been trying to get my hands on one to put on my Holdsworth I'm refurbishing to be like-new.

    Due to the positions of the bike in this photo, I'm 80% sure the Arione isn't for you. (I'd have to see you in person and on the bike for the other 20%). The level of handlebar drop suggests you're...

    Have you ridden Campy before?

    Due to costs, I wouldn't buy one of those just to change out components. I'd recommend saving up and getting a model with the stock components you want. WAY cheaper...

    I've done some custom painting of frames (only steel though), and I have to say automotive paint is more durable than many companies "stock" paint.

    I agree with you on the "fashion" statement. (Most expensive components aren't better, just flashier). But I don't think today's typical components are less durable! Higher end ones might be because...

    I like this equation approach! Here's another that applies:
    $ > V*1.25

    $ - Cost of next bicycle purchase.
    V - MSRP value of most expensive bike ever owned before before purchase.

    Actually, this isn't a question on which one. I have decided on a Xelius. It's another question being talked about on FinancesForums.com that'll decide on weather it's a 200 or 400. (Notice it's .com...

    I wouldn't recommend many road saddles that 'racers' use. Take a look at some mountain bike trail saddles, brooks, Selle Royal, or some shimmed underwear to wear under jeans. A little cushion below...

    Tiagra is good enough for 99% of riders on the road. It's shifts nicely, has plenty of gears, is durable, and I even know a few people who prefer the hoods over 105 and above shifters with the inside...

    Odd conversion. It's made for aero-bars, not drop bars. (And it's not a Talon)
