Hi guys...here is my new ride....in the moment not Lightweight ( Sorry for that ) but i think a good base to make it a lightweight bike in the future !!!

Principia Rex Pro sx size 55
Record 2003 Group
Ritchey Parts
Keo Sprint white
Fulcrum Racing Light
Vittoria Tires
Tacx Tao bottelcages
Flite Titanium Saddle

The fork will be cut soon...i am waiting for the 2003 carbon cranks, Elite Patao Carbon bottelcages...maybe an AX Endurance saddle or Flite Carbonio ( classic ol model )...my Lightweights Gen. 3 are in Florida in the moment!!![b]

Always liked Principa Rex frames. Esthaetically speaking, they are timeless, but does they still ride at best with years?

Agreed...Principia frames have a certain class to them. Very nice indeed. And probably stiff as hell!

Just as a backround Info for you.....got this frame 4 years ago and was very satisfied with it.......then came the Carbon Revolution and i thought to jump on this train.....ride several Carbon frames ( BH G3, Principia Carbon Frame aso.... ) they where all where quite good but not like this frame....so start searching to get one...was not so easy.....after month i found one....a complete bike from 2003 with Record 2003, Ksyrium SL and Tune Parts...it was an ACS ( Distributor in Germany ) equipet bike an the bike looks like new..the old owner a nice cameramen has no time to ride it and the computer that was mount on the bike shows 328 kilometers :shock: !!!
I got the bike for 950 Euro complete 8) !!! sold the wheels, bought the Ritchey Stuff, and now will sold the other Tune parts to buy an AX Endurance.....so in the end i will have spend 950 Euro for a nearly new worldclass bike...and i will definetly never sell it again...doesent matter what happened!!!

Very nice. Would like to see a pic withoput the bottles in. Will make it look even better. Only change I would make to the bike itself would be to remove the decals on the wheels.

But still a cool looking bike.

Excellent! Very stealthy looking. Its nice to be able to recover a bicycle that was a past love. Everyone knows the one they should have never sold.

Lovely Revolution indeed. There's just something about those classic, "genuine" Principia's that cannot be beat.

mattr, please do post. It'll make me feel better about posting my old '99 RSL :lol:
