Some day, maybe I'll try to get a chromed looking bike.

I don't know if yours is, it looks sort of a bronze colour. I actually had a chance to get a chromed bike but passed because it was very recent, like 1999 +/-.

I heard Italy made a whole lot of the chrome type bicycles. What year is this one?

How old is it? No mention of "team" in their current line up. Looks like a Siena and possibly a slightly older one given the shorter looking head tube. Still mighty fine ride although rather modern. How do you fin the 90mm stem, I'd have thought it a bit onthe short side esp with the inline post.

thanks for the replies guys, didnt see them until just then, must of clicked to dont update me button.

the team was the australian released teramo, with far more tasteful graphics than the fugly US version. its the entry level model, an 07 build i think.

90mm stem is fine. i have weird proportions, im 5' 11 but with legs that could fit someone 6'3, i have longs arms and a short torso. the 90mm stem fit for me. Im thinking now a 100mm might work better and i might play around with that.

Indy Fab is in planning to replace it:D

oh and the finish is not polished, its brushed, not a fan of polished.
