    ^ That.

    Make sure you get (if you're going Shimano) 105 pedals over R540s. They are so much nicer and for £10 extra it's well worth it.

    How are the wheels ? Im only asking this cause i maybe planning to get these and they are basically the fulcrum racing quattros but with a different spoke pattern and black spoke nipples. And what are the pros and cons ?

    Are those decals on the frame covered? Or are they just stickers? I was planning on getting this frame for my winter build, but didn't like the over excessive logos.

    Cheers!

    As for the wheels, pros... look awesome, roll forever. Cons... side winds can be scary, dont know how some of you cope with thicker rims!

    Got some Look Keo pedals, changed the wheel stickers, oh and just swapped the stem and spacers...

    Ps the frame stickers were given to me buy the fella I bought the bike off of. The standard Ribble stickers were starting to peel so he gave Ribble a ring and they sent him some of the newer design.

    Cut the steerer and flipped the stem, looks much better and also more comfortable to ride, RESULT!

    Prefer the old decals apart from the Scirocco part, would have removed that and just left the traditional Campag wheel font. You need to rotate your bars down a bit; levers should appear vertical and bar ends just on the horizontal.
