And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

Finally I see a bike that I could possibly ride (because of the larger size frame)! Is beautiful Timo. I really dig your ride.

your ride with lightweights look so classic and beautiful. One of these days, I'll build something with conventional geometry.

Thanks everybody!

Frenk: my LBS here in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, stocks all 2007 limiteds from Selle Italia and Selle San Marco. I've seen all models in another Amsterdam bike shop too.

I'm thinking of switching the Powerarms for Claviculas or the new Powerarms but I'm not sure: it might sort of disturb the classic appearance of the bike. Advice is most welcome. What does the forum think?

Me says don't change. I'm not sure of how the Clavicula's will look with the classic frame tubes. This crankset looks just right.

If you were to do either of them, personally, I'd go for the new PowerArms w/o the labels. Straight black basically.

I was bored with changing tubulars and am now thinking about a set of Campagnolo Hyperion Ultra clinchers. I guess they would look very smart in my bike. Any comments on strength, durability and especially reliability? I'm a bit worried about the all carbon rim. Is it too vulnerable for a 85 kg rider? I'd hate to destroy them going downhill somewere on a middle of nowhere French mountain road. Or am I simply too worried?
