    Ride Magazine review

    Read the review and found it to be positive. The review claimed the bike was comfortable and made well. The jig results were impressive and were comparable with other bikes tested. The reveiw seemed to suggest that good quality doesnt always come with a high price tag. Took one for a test and...

    Ride Magazine review

    Bit worried caus its a new frame design. Geometry sounds spot on for me with a shorter toptube. Bit worried that its not a monocoque frame. Not sure of t2t. How is the stiffness of the frame.

    Moving seat post

    I have tightened the avanti alloy seat clamp pretty tight. But theres no indentations or damage as yet. It will slip down mm by mm over a 1hr ride. Just doesnt seem right.

    Moving seat post

    Has anyone had a problem with a moving seatpost. I have an avanti sprint and no matter how tight i do up the seat post it still keeps dropping. It all most seems like a design problem. Or is this just my bike.

    ocr 0 dent in seat tube behind front deraliur.

    Can someone with an ocr0 2006 check to see if they have a dent in the seat tube behind the front deraliur. Its driving me crazy have to know if this is normal for front deraliur to operate. Cant imagine how i could have damaged it. Must be normal but not sure.

    tour de france on flat bar road bikes

    I would have to say that the tour riders spend around 90 to 98% of the time on the hoods and in a bunch. So i would think getting dragged by the bunch and getting streamed by team mates the advantages of a drop would be minimal. More power in a sprint would be your only advantage i would think...
