wow looks great, love the styling. gotta say, of all the nice things going on in this thread, those Celeste bolts are my favourite so far.


Thanks. I know what you mean. It's those small details that sealed it for me when choosing the Oltre.

Thank you. I lusted after the xr until the xr2 came out. The missus is forcing me to wait for my actual birthday before I can build her up. Can't wait.

Thanks mate,

They sound great. Will do.

I couldn't help putting the parts I had together and taking a snap shot.

Please gently remind your wife that she's making us all wait... Personally I see nothing wrong with letting you build it up, and simply waiting until the big day to actually ride it. :-)

I showed my wife your message and she had a good chuckle.

In all honesty, I couldn't finish it as I am still waiting on the group set. Should be in by the end of the week.

Can't wait to ride this beast.

What is up with the brake weight? Doesn't one caliper by itself weigh more than 123 g and you show both at that weight?

I thought that was low! I think I may have placed one on the scales and inadvertently hit the tare button and then placed the second brake on the scales. I will re-weigh and post.
