My other Bertoletti-built bike, the Viner Maxima, is nice and light so adding a little weight was less of a problem. I did have clearance issues with the front derailleur mounting clamp, but a slight tweak of that and lowering the K-edge chain catcher a tad did the trick.
Headed south of town through the corn fields on our strada bianca. The bike rode great. Some friendly guys were bird hunting with beautiful well-trained dogs: felt like I was back home in Alabama. I ended up at the roundabout north of San Martino. Soon I got onto another dirt road and cruised north toward Marsure then home. The normal beating from the stiff carbon frame was mostly soaked up by the tires. I'll keep testing.
|Take a sharp turn onto this dirtroad after San Biagio|

turn right onto this dirt road for Marsure
|The rear is a tight fit|
