Thanks
After I bought the frame I found out the bottom bracket was BB30, so I couldn't use the 9000 kranks. I choose the Spider because of the looks :P

If you have no use for your 9000 crank, I'll make it fit on my BB30 frame ;) .

NIce BTW :thumbup:

Nice! looked at these a couple of years ago. I thought the BB was normal BSA unless a special order BB30 option?

After riding CentoUno, Aeroad, Ultimate SLX (latest version) and R5 I thought it was time for something quite less ordinary...
The ride is fast as hell, faster than anything I've experienced, but I must admit it isn't as comfy as the germans.
I choose the frame because of the pedigree - it's handbuilt by Antonio Sarto in Italy.
I like the understated looks, and I get a lot of questions 'bout the manufacturer and history when riding.

Total weight: 6,55 kg wo/pedals

Frame: Fondriest TFZERO size large, (stack 57,3 cm)
Groupset: DA 9000
Crankset: Cannondale sisl2 hollowgram
Wheels: Zipp FC 303 clincher
Saddle: Fizik Arione 00
Stem: 3t ARX Team stealth 120 mm
Bar: 3t Ergonova team stealth 420 mm
Seatpost: 3t Dorico team stealth 350 mm
Bottlecages: tacx

Can you give as a short feedback? How is the ride in comparison to your previous CentoUno, Ultimate SLX R5 etc. frames?

Compared to the germans it is fairly more stabile than the Ultimate. I find the Ultimate very lively in the front, but an overall great ride. The TFZero feels just as stiff and amazingly quick on the climbs, but the main difference is the feeling of control, which I prefer over the handling ability of the Ultimate.
Compared to the (old) Aeroad the acceleration is in my opinion better. But I must admit the ride is harsher on the TfZero.
I guess the overall ride is very similar to the Cervelo. Though I guess the feeling of riding a hand built bike makes me prefer the fondriest over the other bikes I've tried.

The Zero is indeed one of the stiffer tube to tube carbon frames around.
I'd say still not as stiff as the Scapin Ivor in terms of custom Italian framesets, but much stiffer than most US-built carbon, maybe Alchemy aside.
I sold a handful of these and my customers were all super happy, though I think Thomades is bang on that this is a race bike, not a cruiser.
My bigger issue was dealing with Fondriest themselves, but that's for another day...
