Gorgeous bike mate. Did you ride it with a carbon seatpost before installing the ti one? i've got a Litespeed frame and the same fork, but i've got an EC90 setback seatpost. Mine soaks up the bumps and is noticeably less buzzy than other bikes I ride beside. I was wondring what advantage the ti seatpost might offer. It looks excellent, but I wouldn't want to sacrifice comfort by changing to one.


I went straight to the Ti seatpost. I had a carbon seatpost on my previous all carbon bike. It's difficult to make a comparison, having not tried a carbon seatpost on the Lynskey. Obviously there are a number of things that could be contributing to the ride quality.

Probably the best way to describe the current ride quality is that it is definitely less buzzy than the old one. Vibration and road noise is very very muted, especially on slightly uneven surfaces. I'm not sure I would say that it soaks up bumps, but I think that might be more of a factor of the zero setback post than the Ti construction.

I'm not sure I can be more descriptive about it and it is hard to tell given that I'm also riding an entirely new frame. I will say that as a package the ride is sensational compared to my old carbon bike, but whether that is the frame vs the seatpost, is hard to say.

Cheerio,

Ben

Bragging rights at the coffee shop? :oops:

Wanted some solid aero everyday wheels, hopefully this will do it.

Haha! :D That's probably why I got the ones I had at first. :oops: Apart from the fact they look awesome. 8)

You chose the right ones - carbon wheels with the carbon braking surfaces are PITA in the rain. The typical first reaction to the need to slow down is "yes, we are going to stop, I hope". Keeping them clean is a must too otherwise accumulated rubbish can damage the surface. Yours won't have that trouble.

Lovely bike. :)

This is mine after the stem and pedals upgrade:

Image

PD-6700-C pedals and the Giant Contact SLR 90mm stem. Not much changes, but they saved a few hundred grams. Not much news to Xplora - he's seen the black and green thing already. I seem to be the only one in the whole area with one of these - not good if you want to remain anonymous. :lol:

It's one of the insanities - we want to be unique and special, except when it suits us to be anonymous. I can't believe I'm related to the only other person I know with my bike frame... would have figured that much sexy would be required by all ;)

Hehe. :) I get so many people asking me, oh, that's the limited edition one isn't it. Unfortunately the semi-gloss finish shows every single mark.

Bought this Tommasini off of bike exchange today.

Image

Cant wait to see it in the flesh, hopefully get it late next week, Sydney to Pt Lincoln is not the fastest of freight runs....

Originally I was looking for a frame set only, something like a Colnago Master. I was going to build it up with spare parts I have in the shed and just use it as a Sunday bike, but I saw this with Campy Chorus and thought wow so blew the budget by a bit but worth it I hope

Hi all,

I bought a used Cube Peloton Race 2012 about two weeks ago. I've not made any upgrades but I'm getting shoes/cleats so that I can utilise the SPD-SL pedals that came with it.

This is an alloy bike with carbon fork and full 105 groupo.

Lovely frame, I'll have to look up what a Colnago Master looks like if that's the league you were looking at =D
edit: just saw the Master, I prefer the delicate older style of the raked fork of the Tommasini. Seeing how much the Master was I don't want to see what Tommasini costs =P

It's a 2009 so it wasn't too pricey.

As you see it $2200 plus postage

Considering what some of the Master frames go for pretty good with Campy Chorus

You can get brand new Tommasini Tecno frames for about $2500US

Thinking it might look a bit better with the decals off of the wheels. What do you think? I've seen a few of your projects and you seem to have a pretty good eye

I think so. In my eyes, the Fulcrum decals don't suit the look of that gorgeous frame.

Great looking bike though (even with the wheels)

very pretty. de-decal the wheels and keep it clean.

and then put up some jealousy inducing photos of the new rig overlooking the bay in this glorious SA sunshine.

I promise we won't all hate you for it.

Please do!!!
PILF (Photoshop inserted lens flare) will not be necessary :D

Agree with clean rims, nothing to distract the eye from contemplation of that gorgeous frame.

Looks like everyone is thinking along the same lines as me, not a fan of the decals with this frame

Only other thing I want to change at this stage

Should finish it off nicely, just need to save some $$$$ first :oops:

for me, you've done the hard yards with modern black groupset, black cockpit, black post. certainly not the traditional 'classic' look, so i'd keep the decals.
don't pretend it's something it's not.
i reckon if you strip those wheels, you're going down a slippery slope. 8)

+1, i'd keep the decals. If I were you and wanted to go without decals on that it would have to be black rims.

Ah ok hadn't thought of that

I've got a set of 38mm carbon rims so will put them on and take some pics, will be interesting to see what they look like
