2015 KTM Super Duke 1290 R Week 3

This week, I got to 1,000 km on Tuesday, so it was time for the first service. Actually, it was more around 950 km, but I wanted to get it ready for the weekend. The oil change was expensive, at about $30 each 1L bottle, and the Beast needs 4. I think I was overcharged for the oil filter, but I wanted to get the service done at the dealer. I also wanted to check the oil filter’s shape, to see if it had collapsed, something that was mentioned by some owners. It hadn’t, but the total was a bit surprising ($181 US).

iPad cases are a dime a dozen, but this one is made out of carbon fiber, a material known for its extreme lightness and cool looks. It’s often used in race cars and bicycles, so why not use it for a portable device case for the iPad? The only problem is the price: 200 clams for a case? I don’t know.

2011 Colnago C150 Unification

Colnago C150 Unification

New photos of the Colnago C150 have surfaced. It’s a pretty frame. To be honest, to commemorate the Italian Unification, I would have opted for Campagnolo’s new electronic shifting group. Granted, only a few teams in the pro peloton have it, but it could have made it pretty exclusive.

The 54cm-sized frame

I’ve been asked a few times about OEM frames. Recently, I’ve come in contact with a factory from China who’s looking to sell their OEM frames. They have one carbon road bike available that’s a monocoque frame. The weave is either 3K or 12K. The finish is a raw carbon clear coating. Overall weight for a 54cm us 1,175g.




Available sizes: 48 50 52 54 56 58 60 62CM

Geometry chart of the frames

Price is $600 USD. I’ll order the frames once I get a minimum order of 4 frames/bikes. There are some Shimano components available as well. Send me an email at asteriskcycles at gmail dot com to find out more.
