I get that widescreen tablets might work for some people, but ultimately, their proportions make them harder to do anything but watch movies on them. Still, this widescreen portable concept looks interesting. As with some of the other concepts in the ‘A Life with Future Computing‘ designboom curated Fujitsu competition, it showcases some interesting features.

The 2011 Colnago C59 Italia is a bit of an understated frame, but it definitely a great ride if you’re looking for stiffness and comfort. You could almost call it a sleeper, since it does use similar technology as the EPS and other Colnago models. As with the EPS, the C59 is handmade in Italy. None of the process has been outsourced to Asia. The C59 comes in a Di2 model for cyclists looking to install Shimano Dura Ace Di2.
SRAM Red-equipped C59s start out at around $6,100 USD, Campy Super Record 11 C59s start at around $7,000 USD. We’ve got access to the complete product lines of most of the component makers out there, so you can fit your C59 out anyway you want, from ultra-light carbon bits from AX-Lightness, to more traditional companies.

2011 TIME RXR-S Ulteam
The 2011 TIME RXR-S have started to trickle in. We are receiving the Di2 models as well. They are a month or so late, but they are well worth the wait. These bikes come with a full warranty from TIME USA, and in case of the RXR-S, it’s a lifetime warranty. The 2011 model has got BB30 and an upgraded front end, that will suppress any high speed wobbling.

Pinarello Dogma Di2 My Way
The order came in within a few weeks and I was honestly surprised at how good this bike looked. The look is minimal, with the black and white.

CH's TCR Advanced frame
This is one of the last frames that we ordered before the cutoff for the 2010 models. It took a while for us to get it, but it looked really good. It was sent off to Singapore and received by the client.

I saw a Taiwanese Pinarello Prince frame. It’s the same frame as the legendary Prince, but without the same paintjob. These are made in Taiwan at the same factory. I wasn’t impressed with the overall finish of this demo frame, but since the customer can decide on what they want, that makes up for it.

A few weeks ago, I came across this lugged frame. I was impressed by the overall finish and learned that it was a Taiwanese-made frame. This is not an OEM frame, but more of a boutique-ish frame that’s available only locally in Taiwan.We do not sell this frameset.
