Replaced my oldie with this last years model Interloc frame. Tange New Prestige tubing. not sure how it's different than the old Prestige, but whatever. Feels good, rides very well. Mildy sloped toptube. Was about 3.75# for the 48cm size. Worked up to 18.5# total.

Only downside is I turned my old ride into a fixie, and I ride it more than the geared bike now!

Love the ride! Fits very comfortably. First "junk saver" seat I've tried; always used Flites before - wow! What a difference! Feels great! Lastly, to any naysayers, yes, I like the color mix, and the fit. Thanks for looking.

I've just figured out over the years what stuff I like, and what works for me.

Love the BG seat. Used Flite saddles for years, on all my bikes. Tried a San Marco Aspide. Nope. Then tried an SLR. Another nope. One of these was in my LBS blowout bin for $10. Tried it, and loved it. Best I've tried so far. Very comfy. 3 of 5 bikes with it now, eventually the rest.

And the colors actually look pretty good in person. Of course, I'm biased to it.
