Just my daily runabout. This is incarnation version 4. Previously it's had Dura Ace 7800, Dura Ace 7900 and another set of Veloce/FSA which is now on my winter bike.

I don't really like the look - it's so compact there is way too much seatpost showing. The Toupe is a shallow saddle too, which doesn't help. For what the bike cost I can't argue though!

Campag Veloce (2009) with FSA crankset.
Campag Zonda (2010) wheels
Schwalbe Ultremo R.1 tyres
Ritchey WCS Carbon stem, bar and seatpost
Specialized Toupe Team saddle and bar tape
Zipp bottle cages
105 SPD pedals

17lbs exact.

    You do know how to make a good looking bike.

    Did like the 7900 version you had, but this also looks good.

    Rake, I have to ask, do you realise you've knicked SPEED_KING s profile image? Or are you really SK himself??! :lol:
