Nice!
The b&w is the nicest color of the series IMHO.

Incorrect opinion!

BTW: got the older version of that Zipp stem on my SR and it's amazing compared to the Ritchy I was using previously. Didn't realize at the time how much that weight weenie stem was flexing.

the bike was standard equipped with ritchey components (stem, bar stubby).. replacing the ritchey stem and bar is major difference much more responsive (not nervous of any kind)...

Yeah, I also replaced the bars. Cheaped out though and got the aluminum Zipp bars since I race the bike. They're fantastic.

Anyway, great build! Very well put together. Good to see more SRs on here.

:beerchug: Great bike. Love the color scheme. I agree with the other's opinions, this color is the best for the Cento uno. IMHO the bike would look better with a more sculpted stem, the Zipp looks to bulky and second you need to get rid of those gum side tires. Black would match your bike much better.
Enjoy your bike.

I'm normally not into the zipp sprinter stem, but the headtube junction at the top tube and downtube kind of emulate the shape of the stem, thereby complimenting it. It definitely works for me.

Whoah! That is one bad ride!

Question: What cups are you using with the Campagnolo UT cranks? I am expecting a Cento 1 SR in a few weeks and wondering what the best solution for using UT cranks.

Enjoy the ride!!

i agree with the bulky part... didn't expect the stem was this 'big'... but together with the vuka sprint it kinda brought back perspective... ;-) during the couple of first rides it didn't feel massive at all...

the tires.. well.. maybe next time..;-)
