Torelli Toccata experiences?
Anyone have experience with Torelli Toccata frames? It's that Alu lugged/ carbon tube one.
Torelli Toccata pic!!...finally
Finally did pick up my Torelli from GVH Bikes in Oregon about April 2011 and have put about 1600 mi. on it. It rides very nice but feels a bit squirrelly when I get over about 38 mph downhill. Not sure if it's me or perhaps being a 59.5/60 cm, maybe I'm feeling its flex. It's only been my 2nd season on a road bike since about 1975 (was mtn. biking for last 8 yrs. or so). Has Campagnolo Chorus compact gruppo.
This pic was at Red Rock Canyon outside Las Vegas about May 2011. I was running tubeless with the Campagnolo 2-way Zondas and about an hour later had a blowout (Hutchinson fusion 3s) on the sidewall and wound up putting a tube in get about 25 mi. back to a bike shop and buy a brand new tire with a tube inserted. The guy at the shop there said that road there are not the kind run tubeless (hot dry climate with lots of little wires/shrapnel from steel belts).
Also the experience with Tom at GVH BIkes was great and I'd recommend them without any reservations. :thumbsup:
