Just thought I'd share my pride and joy. Been lusting after a Legend for quite a while, was lucky enough to become an owner a few months ago. Build is:

Frame - Legend by Bertoletti HT9.5 custom carbon
Levers - Super Record 11
RD – Super Record 11
FD - Super Record 11
Chainset - Rotor 3d
Pedals - Dura Ace SPD9000 Carbon
BB - Rotor Ceramic
Brakes - Planet X CNC with Swiss Stop Black Prince
Seatpost - Custom Legend Deda SuperZero
Saddle - Pro Logo Scratch Pro Nack
Stem - 3T ARX Team
Bars - 3T Ergosum Pro
Wheels - Gigantex 38mm Clinchers/Novatec Supalight
Bottle Cages - Legend Custom 'Wing'

Build weight is around 6.8kg

I was also lucky enough to visit the Legend factory to see how these beauties are built. http://owningalegend.wordpress.com/2013/08/21/finally-my-legend-factory-visit/

The ride? It makes me ride a foot taller! http://owningalegend.wordpress.com/2013/12/04/riding-a-foot-taller/

Oy, great looking bike but I'm going to help out the folks like myself who don't have a 27" monitor.

as above 8) 8)

The only thing i'm not too keen on is the name, Legend :noidea:
It's like one of those poorly translated/misguided phrases into english.

(Yes i am aware of their history).

Quite nice! Deda tubing no doubt. Looks very well done and clean. I like the overall finish of the frame.

Very, very nice! Reminds me of Viner bikes.

I've been waiting for somebody to post one these beauties! Absolutely stunning frameset. I might be wrong, but didn't Bertoletti work for Viner at one time?

Some of you guys are real experts! Marco didn't work at Viner but he did build the top end carbon Viners.

All his Legend creations are handbuilt and made-to-measure. The further up the carbon range you go, the more customisation can be built into the frames, as Marco produces his own tubesets. So in the case of the HT7.5 the main triangle is made up of these tubes, the HT9.5 and HT10.5 also have the rear triangle custom drawn, which means he can build the frame to ride exactly how you want. All Legend carbon frames have hand wrapped joints, so some element of ride quality can be introduced here as well.

His titanium frames are works of art

Bertoletti are cool looking frames; this one's a beauty. Love it. It looks good with those wheels as well.
