    Looks great,how does it ride.
    Spec,price etc

    As a newby these things interest me,having a lower end ali framed bike myself, would you say the difference is in the ride or speed or both.
    If i moved up to a carbon frame with better wheels how much difference to my performance would there be.

    Easy life

    I was gonna post a pic of mine now - to get my own back.

    Glad you got your own thread, and can bask in the wonderfulness that is a Wilier Cento Uno.

    I'll race you sometime.

    Well done!
  • Are we to take it that you flogged a couple of high end watches and your collection of Nikeys to do the deal here? Or are you talking metaphorically?

    Either way, what are are the watches in question? High end means different things to different people, a bit like bikes!

    seriously, I sold my Omega seamaster GMT and Tag Heuer Carrera and 9 pairs of Jordan shoes limited retros to get funds then convert into my cento1..but im happy with my decision though, rather than watching my collections collecting dust in the closet..

    Bit off topic but who makes these white garage doors? They must be doing rather well! :D
    It’s the most beautiful sport in the world but it’s governed by ***ts who have turned it into a crock of ****.

    Just don't get it wet, or it may grow into a full-sized one.. :wink:

    guilty, although I was talking more in generic terms... You could substitute any really top frame in here and this would be true.

    After a stint on a winter bike, and a spin on a mates, the Wilier felt like a different planet. I guess I just meant that once you have got a bike like this, you kow what I mean.
    And, you'd know what I mean.

    "one" means any dream bike... they are not just hype, they usually live up to the hype.

    That's like seeing Jessica Alba in a bikini at the beach but asking who made her towel. ;)


    OP - great bike, congrats! Much better than a few musty old trainers any day!
