  • Nice touch with the red pedals, looks bloody lovely. Enjoy.
  • I could run it in for you until you get better, I could leave you my kids as a deposit.

    That's the nicest bike I've seen hope you enjoy it!

  • That's a horrible bike. You wouldn't catch me near one.

    Be interested to see how it looks with the cosmics.

    Don't discount the quattros straight away though. They are a decent winter wheel. Mine have taken some massive hits since December and they are still straight and true.

    Joking aside, you will love the bike. So stiff and fast.

    to be fair the fulcrums look and from what ive read ,are a brill wheel and the cosmics are,nt a deal lighter but the wife,s sort of got here eye on the fulcrums for her bike so its a bloody good excuse to splash out on the mavics, they look kind of nice to

  • They look great in the flesh, I'm considering getting the yellow fluo frameset.
    Still trying to convince the missus of the n+1 rule...!

    You won't go far wrong.

    Worth having a look on eBay too, there is a red/black large frame going for £1k.

    @slowandsteady ,just curious to what frame size is that and whats your height/inseam meas as that looks quite a large seat to bar drop.
  • It's a large frame.

    I think my inseam is 85.5cm from memory and 186cm tall or 6"1 in old money.

    The drop isn't really that much, I think the camera angle has distorted it a bit as its a shallow drop. The think the bottom of the bar more or less runs in line with the top tube of the frame.

    I'll measure how much I cut off the seat post tomorrow. I think it would be about 4cm at most.

  • Looks great. What wheels and tyres are you running?
    Still trying to convince the missus of the n+1 rule...!
  • Same wheels and tyres as carl1081.

    The are fulcrum quattros with Michelan lithion2. Stock affairs.

    Both seem bomb proof but upgradable.

  • The matte...so lovely. Great red touches, too.
  • Slowandsteady, I like the fluo yellow, but the eye is drawn to the red/white decals on the stem and cranks....they'd be better off plain black IMHO......lovely bike though....I think either a Cento Uno or a Gran Turismo is my next bike.. :D

    I know, I've been looking at a deda superleggero stem today but can't find them in stock at a decent price anywhere. Or could go for a ritchey stem to match the seat topper but I'm not convinced by them.

    The cranks will get changed as and when they wear out. Or maybe when I get my tax rebate.
