One question, though. Is it named for Antonio Canova or Judy Canova?
Standard Italian BB... no worries.jeffreyg said:Sharp.
Don't these bikes come with a pinarello/MOst oversized FP bottom bracket? How hard was it to switchout? Just asking because once ultra torque comes out no one is going to want FP BBs.
You can buy these now on eBay, with Italian tread BB or English tread BB, take your pick.ktuck said:Mine has the same indentation - probably there to strengthen the tube where the FD clamp is.
I was surprised to see that they still have them on Backcountry's site. When I ordered mine last year, they took a long time to find the frame in the warehouse (for a while, I thought they were going to cancel the order or send me a used one) and then the Opera frames disappeared from the website just as mine was delivered.
There's got to be a story there.
