Purchased a Bottecchia SP9 Supernova Framset couple weeks ago, wanted one of these for a while so jumped at the chance when this came up cheap enough in my size

Wont be a lightweight like my BH or even my TCR, but is something a little different.
Looking at building up with sram red.

It's a really interesting frame.

It's a really comfortable frame from a road buzz / vibration standpoint. I built up a 2013 black/neon yellow SP9 in April/May this year. I also ride a C50 and have shared three wheelsets between the two bikes for on road comparisons. From a seat of the pants feel on the same roads and same wheels/tyres, my subjective observations is that the SP9 is just about as good as the C50 for road vibration absorbsion. I expected a harsher ride than the SP9 offers.
