I use to have a Carbon Trek US Post Office limited edition Tour De France and I tell you it was a sweet ride, I had the same system of this Stradalli.
HA, ha ha ha ha... carbon messenger bike ha ha. Guaranteed for two years or two deliveries. At least it has a red chain, 'cause red chains are important.
Everyone have different ways to see life and for sure different taste of what they like to use, in my case a good messenger bike will be a single speed with two brakes straight handle bars and not heavy at all so at the end of the day you will still have some energy to do other activities.
But I won't criticize or insult someone just for been different.
When I was a NYC messenger I was happy to pay my rent AND buy some groceries, at the same time. Never mind carbon fiber road bikes.
Imagine how it will look after a month of locking, if it survives.
Maybe a messenger who has rich parents can have a rig like this for weekends or non-work riding. Its a little funny to see cheap wheels on a carbon frame. It looks cool and they ride fine, just this sort of thing usually has some sort of crazy wheels equally impractical.
I've never ridden a carbon frame so I have no idea if it's worth the expense.
I think I made too much of a big deal of this. I need to get away from the Mac and on my dented bike and go ride in the rare rain.
What makes that a messenger bike? I have never, nor do I ever expect to see a messenger working on a carbon bike. PLUS this wasn't designed to be a "messenger" bike, its just a compact road frame with a chain tensioner.
I think everything about this bike is bobo. vomit.
It just stops faster and is easier to control, which means easier to go faster.
Good job with the photo, lining up the valve stems and the Continental logos.
(and cut the dang fork!)
I didn't notice it , you're right it need front brake then it won't be street legal !!!
Why no front brakes? Maybe give it a disc in the front.
Otherwise, sweet ride.
