Haven't been riding for a few years, sister and brother in law convinced me to convert to a roadie...

finally got the bike together after receiving it Monday and taken it out for a quick test run - seems to be all working nicely although I do need a bit more practice with the look pedals, not having the best time getting into them!

speck wise its full Campagnolo Veloce with 10 Spd compact double and Campagnolo Khamsin clinchers

needs some fettling to get everything setup right - the saddle is a little low and i need to change the bar angle - are there any guides to setting up road bikes.

    Nice and understated that.
    Never a fan of coloured tyres.
    If that's your first road bike you've got a good looking and probably good performing set up there.
    First timer that's not Trek, Spesh, Scott, Giant etc... Chapeau sir.
    Can I ask how much it cost you ?

    Saddle looks a little low for a frame that size.

    Thanks, i did take a bit of a gamble with the ribble instead of the traditional route but never been one to do things normally ;)

    The coloured tyres are a bit tartie but was going for some co-ordination :) I doubt I'll be keeping them white when up for replacement.

    Cost wise it was just under a grand by bought through C2W...

    Seat wise it was too low then - having taking it our for a bit longer i've got the saddle a decent amount higher and the bars turned up a bit more now and its allot more comfortable. Need to get the cleats properly set up now, seriously struggling to get into the pedals :(
