Hi latman, lovely collection you have! Do you rate Ventos? Thank you,

I haven't actually ridden them yet , they look very vertically stiff and are not light I know but I love the look of them (and alloy Mavic cosmics) and think they are well suited to the Chesini steel frame .

now the saddle dilemma for the Chesini (yes I'm a Turbo man) I originally thought the red/white bioturbo was the best option but it may be overdoing it.

Ah, Chesini OL frame, the first of the modern generation 'compacts'. Saw them first in the Het Volk in '92.

I used to ride turbo saddles on all my bikes, but since trying a turbomatic a few years back I've gradually swapped each turbo for a 'matic. They have a much more racey profile than turbos I think, plus I like the little touch of yellow when looking down between your legs!
