Sannino it is red which I like.

This is the race bike ad it will be used for racing and that pretty much it.

It is kitted out with a complete record 10 speed groupset (apart from brakes which are modern record) including the BB, seat post, pedals and headset. I am using a square taper record crank to it only weighs 530g and with the record BB (180g) you can hardly call that heavy. The frame is steel and made from columbus Genius and weighs 1700g. The fork is Columbus Minimal 1" of course, weighing in at 329g.

The bars and stem are Deda Superleggaro. I have fitted a sella Italia SLR seat as well.

The wheels are the temporary ones, Miche Primato hubs on some 25mm wide 50mm deep carbon clinchers I bring in from time to time. The wheels it will have will be built from Royce Ti/carbon hubs (Royce forgot to make them and they will be ready now at the end of march/april) on ENVE tubular rims. Note the wafer thin clearance I currently have with 23mm tyres on the back. Tyres are Conti GP 4000S with Conti race 28 supersonic inner tubes.

Weight 7.9kg but that will drop by 0.5kg with the new wheels and tubular tyres.

I know there is a lot of stack but I will reduce the stack to as much as I feel comfortable with as time goes on. 120mm of saddle to handlebar drop is quite enough for now. May need to find some 1" carbon spacers.

Looking forward to riding it, it is that new to me.

Not touching but really close like 2mm away from the down tube. Fortunately the tyre is round and test riding today the flex in the frame is so miminal the tyre did not touch.

Reservation an old thread. Got the frame back from dave Yates today as it has been repainted. It has lost 76g in the process. New decals as well. Been building today and will finish tomorrow and post some pics

I love Genius :) One friend of mine has a Genius tubed bianchi with square tapered alloy 10 speed record.. astonishing bike :)

Unfortunately another mate few weeks ago sold a Genius tubed Rossin performance for 200 GBP, which was totally renovated-repainted wonderfully..

https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/259550/#11994505

was my size..

So, because of my sentimental involvement with the tubeset and also manufacturer (I love every "smaller italian brand, which is not that widely known") I'm subscribing and looking forward to your posts :) :welcome:

Well I was going to post some photos today but I just realised I forgot to buy a new chain.

The bike now has Super Record RS on it and long 140mm stem to help my position. I have also fitted power cordz with Ashima outers courtosy of fair wheel bikes. The bike has lost 300g. I have yet to buy the garmin pedals which I must do before the first race on the 8th March. Weight should be 7.7kg but at some point when I spend some more on light weight tubular wheels I could save another 500g.

The frame cost me £200 (with decent paint which I promptly ruined but riding it alot) and now it is repainted it is still worth £200 which is why I will race this until I break it.

Well it done except I have a bit of wheel cleaning to do though.

the frame has been repainted - done by Dave Yates. Weight has gone down to 1624g which is good. New Decals too.

I have reused the wheels I had last year as I have not worn them out. I have some lighter ones planned but I need to wear these out first, these wheels would save me 500g being carbon tubulars.

The groupset is now Super Record RS with a Miche supertypre 12-25T 11 speed cassette (132g). Seat post is a lighter USE (172g) my new Deda superleggaro post got nicked. The stem is 140mm long now as last year 120mm stem proved a bit too short as I got used to a more stretched out position quickly. Bars and stem are Deda Supperleggaro. The headset is still an FSA orbit. Forks remain unchanged which are the columbus minimal.
Powercordz cables have been used with Ashima outers.

I have yet to fit pedals but I will be hopefully buying Garmin Vectors so another 400g will have to be added. If I don't it will be another pair of Campagnolo Record pedals (260g)

Weight without pedals is 7.37kg so given last year it weighed 8kg with 260g pedals this is a bit of a weight loss.
