[Cyclelicious] New comment on 2009 Bianchi Pinella steel frame.

cafiend has left a new comment on your post "2009 Bianchi Pinella steel frame":

Shift housings will have to be replaced monthly as the ferrules fatigue and fold; faster for four mil than five, but often in any case.

Perhaps wall thickness gives them the excuse in this case. Other frames sported them for a couple of seasons with no excuse at all. Very frustrating to maintain those bikes, especially when owned by riders with no critical eye for design. They just get tired of what they feel is cheesy housing.
