I just bought a Ti ax and just wanted any input from members. This for me is a happy venture, in that now I won't have to build My in the box 07 corsa extra! I can now savour it until another day. Things I have found out is the bb Italian...is this correct? Anyone on the seatpost size?

Yes, correct

BB thread is Italian and seatpost size is 27.2 for the AX and EX My seat tube is 35mm but I have a Merckx EX so best to check with Gita Bikes. I'm sure another poster will answer re: seat tube size. You will like the ride. Enjoy

I've got an AX that I bought used 3-4 years ago. It has become my favorite bike that I use for almost all of my long rides.

The decals on mine were pretty skanky when I bought it, so I ordered a new set from Gita Bikes. After removing the old decals, I buffed the entire frame with a Scotch Brite pad and it looked like new.

I have absolutely no idea how many miles are on the frame since I am the 3rd owner, but I've put about 12,000 miles on it myself and it still looks like new. That's one of the nice things about ti frames -- with a little cleaning and buffing from time to time, they show very little wear and tear.
