Casati Monza Road Bike

I just bought this about a mile from my house. It has Columbus Allele tubing, 3TT bars, Campy Victory components, and lots of pantographs. The Selle Storika leather saddle is unique. I'm not to happy about the tubular wheels.

Love your new Casati.

I have one as well that isn't built at the moment. A Gold Line S.

Beautiful framesets.

Have you owned tubs before? I ride them on a couple of my bikes and there are pros and cons.

Mostly pros for me.

Cool find! Try the tubulars if you haven't, they are my preference for a road bike. That saddle is unique, I like!

Get a bag for the one on the saddle, so you can keep it clean.

That's great! I don't think that saddle is suitable for C&V'ers under the age of 18 however.
