How does this Tommaso Augusta Sound to you?
Hello Folks here,
I have an eye out for this Tommaso August. Here are the specs, or some. Hoping any input could help me with my decision.
Silver Alex rims laced to Bianchi/Formulas
Vittoria tires still have life, rims are very true.
Truvativ cranks, 51t, 49t or 42t chainrings.
90mm Specialized stem
MKS pedals, no clips or straps unfortunately.
Bianchi Pista Saddle
FSA 1 1/8" Headset black, Aluminum black seatpost.
Chaintensioners, ive fit a 38c in the rear triangle no problem
It's a pretty generic bike, how much are they charging you for it?
I read in another thread that a batch of those frames were built with off center stays.

Now both frame had screwed brake bridges. Both frames had to be re-drilled to fit brakes as the wholes where too small. SR Shimano and Tektro brakes would not reach the rim. Using LR brakes form CC and Tektro would not fit unless the wheel was all the way forward with small 23c tires. Which ment you had to have a perfect chain length gear combo. I also think the seat stays where at a weird angle which made things worse.
Nice looking bike, but CRAP quality! BD or Schwinn offer much nicer bikes.
