    One of the guys that was building a 04 fuji team superlight frame on bikeforums.net noticed his frame was exactly like the motobecanes of this year. That is where I heard that one.

    They offer a discount because they take last years equipment, slap their names on them and sell it at a discount. I think it is cheesy because they are being deceitful about it. I read a post saying that this years Motobecanes are last years Fuji's. Here is more in it...

    Tell me what you think (building a bike)

    OK I was looking at the frame weight thinking they were listing both together. 2.09 pounds for just the fork is pretty bad.

    He said he is getting a deal from a bike shop manager buddy so I doubt this is the case.

    How uncharacteristic of you boudreaux. You usually can appreciate the value of cheap equipment when most others can not. That frame weighs in about the same as other steel frames so I don't see a problem especially if he is getting a deal from the shop. Do you have a justifiable reason for...

    For just starting out, it looks good. 105 will do well for you. How much will it all cost?

    Cassette 11-21 or 12-23?

    If you are a sprinter, I would think you would want to keep the 11. What about an 11-23 or a custom 11-25 (11,12,13,14,15,17,19,21,23,25)

    All of Bianchi's Reparto Corse frames are made in Italy (XL carbon included). The regular road line is made in Asia somewhere.

    Help me decide:Bianchi XL vs. Giant TCR 2

    I ride an XL carbon and I love it. I also test rode a 04 Giant TCR-1 and the Bianchi was a world nicer. It felt much stiffer and more alive. I bought the Bianchi because I got a deal on it and I really need a 55cm frame to fit me right. That is getting harder to find. Buy the one that fits...
