Sometimes it is all in the details (and forum assistance)

When I originally put my Tommasini together, I wanted the appropriate 'Tommasnini' cages. Due to availability, I settled for some ciussi inox cages.

With the help of Liv2RideHard, I now have the appropriate cages. He also included some Tommasini bar plugs.

Here is a picture comparison. I think it is a much better match:

Looks good, I hope you got two. It sounds like the Tommasini is going to miss out on mid winter slush rides though.

I do have two. Pics were for comparison.

Any you we correct. No slush rides for this one. I have a bianchi more equipped for such things. Besides, I can't have the Tommasini dripping on our carpet when I get home

Haha, not quite. Tires must be tan. I'm thinking deda or veloflex.

Here are some finished pics in poor lighting:

Beautiful! Oh man that's nice.

Another option for tires: the Vittoria Corsa SCs. Definitely the right look, and I like their ride very well.

Veloflex Masters are under $40 at Ribble, and the last two orders I've made have made it to AZ in a week, even during the holidays. Not sure if XMAS10 still gives you a discount, but worked for me last week. They have 23 & 25's in stock

Love the Tommasini.

Does the corsa sc have any benefit over a veloflex? I've been very happy with veloflex clinchers.

I hear good things about the deda tires and they are much cheaper as well.

Thanks!

Those are Seoul tubular rims. No masters here. I may need a pair for another set though.

It's heavier and made in Asia. Is that an advantage?

That's why I ask. If I'm spending corsa sc money, I think I will just go veloflex.

Very nice except the post. If they didn't cross drill the aero section, I think they would look cleaner, nicer. Atmo.

I wanted a c-record post but couldn't find one long enough. Option two was a miche primato (same post without cross drilling) but they are no longer made and the supertype was easier to find. Overall, I am pleased but would consider changing it if I found the first two options. The holes do match the cutouts in the shifters so there is that.
