That painting is drawn by UTAGAWA HIROSHIGE, one of the most famous painter of Ukiyo-e.
This painting is very famous, and this place Satta peak is loved by fans of Ukiyo-e not only cyclist :)

Hi, I have tried 2 courses to climb FUJI-san,
1st is FUJI SKY LINE http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/23394592
2nd is FUJI AZAMI LINE http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/8229604

Absolutely awesome!!
Nice to see with the stilletto fork too :-)

I had mine for 9 years until last winter when i snapped the chainstay. It was the best bike i've ever had, with a sublime ride that i never got bored of, and i'm glad to hear other people back up why they love theirs, rather than "because its a colnago", or whatever...

I keep looking out for a replacement, but in the last 12 months they've started going up in price. There's 2 that were on retrobike in the last few weeks which were asking stupid money in my opinion, especially when one of them was on ebay 12 months ago for half the price, and hasnt got an original fork, or seatpost.....

nice backgrounds too!! :beerchug:

record,
I've not watched the movie yet, but I'll try it!
I understand your suggestion, however it's difficult to find among from Italian brands.
I had used Deda ZERO100, 3T ARX stems, but I prefer CNC prossecing sharp edge like Deda NEWTON.
And I like scarce 10/80 degree rise stem, there are only Thomson and PRO I think.
Regarding handlebar, I've tried 3T ROTUNDO, Deda Campione, Superleggera,Cinelli RAM Bar and other,
as a result, I choose ZIPP and Easton. It's my taste. :D Thank you for your suggestion!

I think it means Italian brand or Italian design.

Rush
>Italian Road Bike mirror?

umm that's too bad.
never be serious, price varies periodically in ebay, you have only to wait for the good chance!
I think seat post is replacable with shim, but NEVER go the frame without FORK! :)

Awesome build. Very clean. Amazing Italian perfection amongst amazing Japanese landscape! C40 and C50 are now classic carbon frames and even though they aren't the stiffest frames their smoothness has a lot of fans... and I'm one of them now! Yippee.

Great update! I foresee you will love the ride with the new tires.

If anyone ever is in dire need for a Colnago star fork, contact me. (or better: if anyone has a spare c40 frame in 55, contact me! ;-)
