Saw this while looking around online: 7VRN Carbon track bar - Handlebars and Handlebar Stems - Velodrome - Brooks Cycles

I've heard mostly positive things about the 7VRN frame, which was a BT knockoff.

fwiw, those scatto knock-offs seemed pretty popular at junior nats and masters nats.

I'm not trying to say that knock off products are actually good, I'm saying that it's a very slippery slope with how small the bicycle industry actually is, and how difficult it would be to actually enforce any sort of standard without going down a route a la NJS certification.

No one managed to even get any money out of Spinergy with their 4 spokes IIRC.
Boy, I wish I stumbled on these threads earlier. My Colossi is a nightmare of junk. So many build and quality issues. I'm late to read this thread. I regretting my $ expenditure.
