All you need is a basket, and your summer set-up is complete. I think you can fit "pop" champers bottles in your cages. How do carbon bikes hold up with your lady-friend sitting on the top tube?

white saddle, duh!

TSLS - Thank you for your comments, the cages do in fact fit the "pop" and by the advice of Ernesto himself, my lady-friend and I opt for the Laverne and Shirley style when going tandem.

Josh - I am with you on the white saddle, PRO.

RF,

How do you like the Cosmic Carbone Pros? Mavic has dropped the MSRP by $400 to stoke sales (especially with the Carbone Ultimate coming out). I'm thiking of picking up a set.

Radio Freddy said...

Anon - I cannot say enough great things about the Carbone PROs. The drop in MSRP makes the wheels a slam dunk. They have an amazing ride, the feel very light and very fast and when on the road, very stiff laterally. I cracked the rear on the first ride when I slammed a huge pothole, and later in the season took a hit from some debris on the road puncturing the front fairing. I rode them all season long and never had an issue, then I raced some cross races and finally in January I sent them back to Mavic for the MP3 replacement. They sent me a brand new set in the box. No questions, no hassle. Amazing! I am working on a post that focuses on the PROs and how awesome the MP3 program is. Make sure to use the cork pads provided by Mavic. - RF

Nice work, You are classic. I may have to ship you one of my old Fizik's to match the bar tape in your summer set up! The Mavic Classics rip. I actually 'crossed on a set for 4 seasons and would have continued using them but sold them with teh old CX bike. A rare commodity who's surplus was actually gobbled up by PRO squads over the last three years or so for training wheels.

Radio Freddy said...

Greg - Thanks for the offer, white would surely be PRO and may make the bike simply too cool for me. I have yet to see an all white Fizik but when I do i will give it a go. have you seen the post on the Mavic Classics here on BKW? Do a search and check it out, I think you will enjoy it.

RF,

Just ordered my Cosmic Carbone Pros - can't wait to get them on the road. They'll be going on a Parlee Z1x that looks a lot like your Colnago.

Radio Freddy said...

Anon - I trust the PROs will look PRO on the Parlee and you will love the ride. Pop for the MP3 program. You will be thankful you did.
