Subject: [CR]One more Raysport

Just finished the build of my second Raysport from Greg at Bicycle Classics. This one is the Turismo model, which has slightly more relaxed geometry than the SuperCorsa, though not as much as the Strada. It's Reynolds 531, has chromed headtube lugs, rear stay and fork ends and fender eyelets. Headtube lugs are different from the Strada or SuperCorsa, though Cinelli like in some areas with the little circles. Greg says it will take 27 inch wheels, but there isn't much rear wheel clearance even with a 700c, so I doubt you could get a fender mounted with the 27 inch. Build quality is great as well as the ride, (softer than the Super Corsa). I'm sold on the Raysports. So far, I've seen the SuperCorsa, Strada, Turismo, and Criterium models. Anyone know what the lineup was? I'm really sold on these two models of Raysport bikes, the Turismo and SC. Since the Turismo rides softer than the SC, it would be great for for the long distance rides I used to do. Quality similar to the other Raysports, English threading, and paint is thin. Anyone else on the list have a Turismo?
