Hmmm... I think it would probably look pretty cool with all orange bar tape, but hey, nice bike :thumbsup:

Nope, Bar tape must be one colour only, white if you're pro, but definately the orange on that avanti.

Looks a bit too Benchmark for me! Go white tape & get a white seat. Mmmm... sexy! ;)

Pull the bearings out and put in ceramic enduros. :)

(true, it makes the crank a shitload more expensive, but if you've just got to run them....)

Much of the drag I've noticed appears to come from the driveside bearing seal (when it's not detaching and fixing itself to the spindle), do the ceramic bearings do much to alleviate that?

Won't the Enduro bearings come with their own seals?

I was curious about that - as the cups remain, I wondered if the bearings were retrofitted in to the cups and then used the existing proprietary bb seal.

:pmob: I have a set of enduro bearings (not ceramic) they come with their own seals, but these create so much drag as to be very noticable while riding, they also space the cranks out further than stock setup, leaving less area for the left crank arm to tighten onto. I have taken them off the bike now.
