    CF seat stays...

    With all of the CF stuff flying around and a recent post about the apparent bonding issue with the CF seat-stays, I thoought I'd take a look at mine.

    I have a very early CF seat-stay equiped RX. I have abused my RX for about a year and ~ 3500 miles. Here are pics of the four CF seat-stay junctions on my bike.

    Look like new to me.

    By the way, does anybody know if you can you get a ML2 with silver chain-stays...

    That might be the only thing that my wife would notice about my secret "other" bike.

    I'd be happy to swap my silver (polished) rear tri with your CF/Hydroformed rear. But if it's a matter of trickery, ie making two bikes look like one, what will you do about the front end?

    I would bet that wifey wouldn't notice the rocker arm thing. Colors are another matter.

    You're right. No I feel bad. Are you losing the 11? Ti Deluxe perhaps?

I'd have to unload another Titus if I really wanted either one............(hmmm Racer-X or Eleven????????) Dangit Ortho you spawn of Satan, should never have reminded me about the IF...........

    so that's the one.... well given that sweet stable that you have, I don't think you will miss it that much.... and since I guess you will get a new toy and probably make the HCR buyer very happy, it's all good!
