    You owe me some replacement springs for my tart-o-meter :)

    Something's not in proportion. Oh I know. It's the girl's, er, I mean, compact chainset.

    And you need to clean your bar tape.

    Very nice. Very nice indeed.

    Do you slope back on your saddle?

    Saddle is for display purposes only! Nah it's new and not dialled in yet, I only stuck it on tonight.

    Yeah. Might change back though, keep things cleaner that way.

    Yeah. I'm finding white bar tape a PITA, so will switch back to black this Spring. Just wanted to try it out to see what it looks like. I don't go any faster, mind. Contrary to what the LBS told me.

  • That is utterly tart-tastic.

    Have you been leaning the fork and seatstays against a very hot radiator though?

    Didn't the De Rosas starting having squiggly seat stays a few years ago?

  • Love it. Will it be parked up outside the Morpeth tomorrow night? Maybe you could let some of us have a go. Just a little go. We'd even pay. Money and stuff. Just up the embankment. And back, of course. What could go wrong? Please?

  • And what colour are the mudguards?
    Not very pratical without them!

    CJ - is that a bit of OCD with the handlebar tape - good spot I have to say

    I could be tempted to chuck the Ribble winter hack in for that piece of bike porn

    You do need to get it dirty of course.

  • Those aren't all mine. I'm not allowed any more as there's a credit crunch. I try not to sulk about this.
  • Looks like sex on wheels to me :shock: 8)

    What components is it filled with?

    Very possibly. However, what does that make the builder of the Prince? :)

    You missed a bit.
  • *picks jaw up off floor*

    Spotted these on your sig yesterday but didn't get a chance to comment!
    I love the colour co-ordination thing going on! I might even go as far as saying that it looks almost as nice as the all black 09' model I saw at GB Cycles and that had the Lighweight wheels on!

  • Hmm, not to keen on the placement of the quick release wheel levers...........
    Having said that I do love the arrangement of a book and a plastic top to prop it up :-)

  • Very nice indeed! You get many gold tart stars for coordinating the cages so nicely. Are they carbon? Hmmmm?

    Yep - carbon cages from Pinarello's in house component brand - MOST. They are rather amusingly called the BORK.

    "PORTABORRACCIA MOST BORK" :lol:

    Please tell me you have co-ordindated carbon fibre drinks bottles to?
    Also my last comment about the usage of a book/lid wasn't a criticism, I love the ingenuity of it!
