Hello Fellow Members,
I just want to show a few quick photos of my new ride, a present from my good wife!
This will be my second time I've posted my summer ride, my previous bike was a Look 565 with Campagnolo Record Grouppo & Corima Winium wheels - a great ride in my opinion (But sadly now sold). Hopefully this will be just as good if not better!

Its been a long time coming, I ordered it back in late November. So thats more than 5 months wait. Its the longest I've had to wait for any thing. Is it worth it? Yes, I think so (so far). I cannot say for sure yet as I've yet to ride it even though I got it delivered 2 weeks ago but first impression its extremely positive. Had to wait on the parts & LBS to sort the BB & cranks out first hence the delay in getting it ready.
Just on the looks, I think its great. It has massive squarish down tube with quite a beefy BB area as you would expect from modern carbon bike these days. Coming off a Look 565 lugged carbon frame, this certainly looks more "modern" and "purposeful".
Here's some images of the bike:Untitled

The last 2 images in the set show the internal battery thats hidden inside the lower part of the down tube with an access at the bottom of the BB area ..... neat & clever me think!
