Re: Guess that aero tubeset

It's not meant for a velodrome. The BB drop is too much. Guess it was made for road use and this is how I intend to use it anyway.

I'm fairly sure the chainstays aren't Columbus max. The taper is really short.

Re: Guess that aero tubeset

I can't see any chainstays like that on a zero tubed bike or in any of their catalogues. Doesn't mean they didn't use a mix of tubes though.

Re: Guess that aero tubeset

Yes, that is the conclusion I came to, frame number is 0914.

Regarding tubing the fork weighs 618g and the frame is 1.646kg. Fairly good weights I think but nothing earth shattering.

Guess that aero tubeset

Hello, Not been on here in a while due to moving. Now things have settled down inevertably another bike ended up on my doorstep. It's a Corrado. Lovely, light with a paper thin downtube. I'm curious what the tubing is, maybe someone can help as it looks quite distinctive. The downtube looks like Col...

Re: Rail Lines - Past and Present - Cornwall

Did you know St. Blazey has the last remaining semi circular roundhouse in the UK? Not a railway line but interesting nevertheless.

Weather is still good.

Re: Tom Watson. Whats he up to?

He and the majority of labour are betraying the working class and trying to save neo-libralism. Neo-libralism only gives the consessions required to pacify the majority. Any alternative that doesn't withhold the maximum possible is unacceptable and this is why any form of socialism isn't an option. ...

Re: Fixed gear chain wear

Izumi supertoughness chain is about £60 a pop. It is allegedly x3 more durable than a standard Izumi track chain, which costs about £16. I've not compared the two; has anyone? Still, the posh Izumi chain looks cheap by comparison with the Renold equivalent..... cheers I've never put 1000 miles on a...
