Always fancied one of these, and when xcMuttely put his up for sale I harassed him until he sold me the frameset.




Mostly Campag Chorud 10spd which is so much better than their 11spd stuff IMO. Fulcrum Racing 5LG with 27c Pave for the time being, fancy some Spesh Turbo Cotton 26c in a few months. Needs matching Ritchey stem too.

It rides great, so much stiffer than my old alu frame. There's a little bit of give, but dare I say good flex? The tapered Enve fork keeps things solid up front. All in all, love it.
