Well the box said "Speciale"

My Wilier Cento1.

XXL frame.

Just changed the handlebars to Evo SL
LW´s with tune qr´s
Complete Super Record Gruoppo.
Ritchey componentry


6.6 kg as pictured.

Tuning plans: Cutting fork, ZG Gravitas brakes. A Signature carbon stumpy ( I hope) and an AX saddle should bring it down to 6.1-6.2 ish
Also Ritchey logos on stem and stumpy will have to go.

It´s 100 grams heavier than my XXL Scott addict with the same setup although it has 10 speed record.

I blame the "speziale" paintjob which I really like.

Ride report... Well I´ve only got one ride on it yet. Felt good. Stiff front end.

Looking very good there. The black and red make a very beautiful combination. The rear triangle looks like it will be plenty stiff too.

Classically modern! Very nice ride.

Although... you aren't fooling anyone with that "student" avatar when you start equipping your bikes with Lightweight wheels. :)

A question: can you order a custom color or this is a new paint scheme that isn't on their site yet?

That build is gorgeous! I love the proportions of the frame!

Great color choice, much nicer than the stock paint. When you say "any color" do you really mean ANY? I'd love to see a deep green!

Enjoy!

I love the paint job on the frame! Looks great with the wheels/components.
