Looking Good :). Did you put the decals on yourself? I've got a decal-less Litage frame in the garage.....

The decals were already on the frame. A friend of mine also has this bike, but he doesn't have the big LITAGE decal. Cheers

I had one of these sold it recently. Lovely looking frame, but a bit too much flex to my liking.

Mine didn't have any decals either. They made and MTB version that looked real cool as well.

That looks really nice and those are some stylish improvements as well.
You do see the mtb frames about a bit but the road frames are few and far between I find.

Thx!

Yesterday I mounted the chorus front derailleur with a nice silver braze on adapter. I also ordered a Campagnolo Seatpost, but I noticed later on that I ordered the wrong size :(. Anyone know how to fit a 25.4 in a 25.8 seatpost? As shims don't exist?
