I've used a very small piece of double sided tape and zip ties to add water bottle cages to my cross bike. They stayed on all summer with no trouble. Don't know what the tape does to paint but it doesn't harm titanium.

I hope this isn't blasphemy but were any of the 60's Italian bikes well built. As much as I loved my Doneselli (sp), it wasn't really a piece of art. The chrome on the chain stay peeled off with a couple of months but it was lighter than a Paramount so I didn't care. Later the frame broke in the middle of the down tube but I just wrapped some medal from a VW fender around the crack and welded it up. And I continued to race it. Finally, I gave it to my son and it was promptly stolen. So maybe I've answered my own question: it was a great bike!

By the way, I sold two very elegant Slocum work stands at the San Diego swap meet. The clamp would only work on tradional steel bikes. Build in the early 80's, very nice welds but no lug work. I think he has more. They are nice work stands but really they are great display stands.

Glad that UCONN beat Duke in both games.
