Inspired by censored and Focus here (I hope) is my new Condor Baracchi. The frame is a birthday / retirement present to myself and I'm transferring the groupset from my old (2010) Baracchi.

Not sure If I have downloaded the links correctly, couldn't work Flicker so am now trying photobucket.
Build list:

Frame - 2014 Condor Baracchi (55cm), with carbon headset.
Wheels - Fulcrum Racing 3 with Michelin Pro 4 & latex tubes
Groupset - Campag Chorus (except Record Front Mech)
Pedals - Look Keo Carbon
Saddle & Seatpin - Fizik Arione (RCS team colours) & Cyrano carbon
Bars & Stem - Pro Vibe carbon bars (2nd hand) Pro Vibe Stem

No idea what it will weigh, guess about 16lb, maybe less with different wheels?

    Really nice frame that, nice and understated but looks the biz

    Looks even nicer in the flesh, I'm very pleased with it.

    ps. ta for fixing the pictures, I'm evidently too stupid to figure out how to do it myself!

    No problem, when you copied the links, they already had the img tags, so you didn't need to double them, and you don't need the URL either.

    But then you went and deleted the pics!
  • Stunning and perfectly understated. What's the finishing kit going to be? Will look cracking once done

    Finishing kit - Pro vibe bar and stem (just bought the stem and I'm very impressed with the quality of design, construction and finish) with Fizik bar tape (matt); Fizik Cyrano carbon seatpin and RCS team Airione saddle (£84 in the Condor sale).

    Although it sounds a mess the mix of matt finish (the majority of the paint on the frame), gloss (white frame panel, bottle cages, headset & of course, Chorus equipment) and white, red and grey accents really seems to work well.

    Aim to finish build over the weekend and will have a go at posting pictures (or at least links) when its done.

    I reckon it would look lovely with an 80th anniversary groupset a mate suggested converting Chorus to 80th anniversary Record with a sander and some red paint!

    Too much. There's a risk with Leander Club / Westminster School / Rapha pink of being mistaken for posh.

    I have just ordered that frame (black/blue) as my present for totally disintegrating my knee, and cycling being the rehab I'm allowed! Hope it looks as good .......
