Lovely already

I know this is a 51cm but can you tell us your dimensions....height etc.???? Would be interesting to me as I am interested in this frame but right on the border between sizes.

Thanks and also looking forward to completed pics......and a ride review would be awesome too


Corky, I'm about 5'9 with short legs (Asian legs lol) 51cm is close to a 50s but shorter HT. Hoping to finish it this week and get a ride this weekend.

Oh man, I love that color.

Possibly a dumb question - are those the pads that came on the brakes? Why is one set red and the other set black?

Jbaillie, Black pads are the OEM, the Reds on the rears are Campagnolo are for Campagnolo Carbon wheels, I also have a pair for the front. Thanks for asking.

not sure you're going to have much room to put the charging port in the bottom of the BB area. it'll hit the crank spindle. you did the right thing by keeping the DeRosa instead of selling it. it looks great.

isn't the brakes direct mount? looks like it has options for either or. i would probably go with direct mounts. oops, the pics just loaded in with your direct mount Record brakes. i jumped the gun. looks great Edwin.

Ive never use barrel adjuster before and the campagnolo under bb brakeset has one.

I like how the brake cable and fd/wire stop sits right next to each other, this means
Clean lines between the two using a shrink tubing

Looking good. What size tyres are you using? Do you think it would fit 28mm? I have an older De Rosa and the fork easily does 28mm but the rear only has 1-2mm which is obviously not enough clearance so I generally go 25/26 at the back.

good time to break it in Edwin. the Concept is next on your list. good news. don't think you put that many miles on the Look. i plan to ride the ESX on the Farmlands. the Altum still needs tweaking...but that should be ready around then as well.

Wow, clearly the best color amongst the other offerings but has there been any fundamental changes made to the frame from the past few years other than the brake being moved to under the BB?
