very nice rico. getting tempted by these EPSs.. :lol: enjoyed your write-up

yes i'd change the cages but you've pre-empted that one.


I know, I know... Thing is, apart from Elite Ciussis, these are the only cages that don't fall apart for me. Even regular Taos only last about three months before the alu and plastic parts separate. As for posy cabon cages, I've given up all hope with those.

Helpful that Conago have stopped using those weirdly small bottle cage bolts though - they're on regular sizing now.

Lovely.
Dare I say "black bar tape and black saddle"?
No, thought not!
Good job Sir!

My girlfriend just keep planting things... But she can't remember what that was. Whatever it is, it's now about five foot high.

I probably will go black saddle/black tape this summer, especially as new white Toupe 130s seem impossible to find.

Tikka - weightwise, King Ti cages and the carbon bars probably knocked about 150g off. Having been a long term carbon bar sceptic, these have really changed my mind.

Very nice! :beerchug: Maybe look into getting a different saddle? I rode the Toupe for years but really it's a mediocre saddle for sitbone support.

Fantastic bike. Clean and understated. How is the frame aging ? I mean, did you noticed any problems with the satin coated carbon regarding small rocks during your rides ?
Many thanks,
Roberto.

Roberto -

First time out on it for a couple of weeks today (I'm recovering from a chest infection :cry: )

I was dreading the ride, but it felt fantastic. The frame looks perfect, no dints or scrapes - and it's done some pretty hard riding this year.

It' s a bit lighter than when I first got it, thanks to new bars (3T Rotundo Teams) and one or two other bits. It's also now all black :twisted:

Hi Rico,
Really sorry to hear about your illness. Wish you a speedy recovery.
Thanks for your input about the frame. I was considering to put a translucent matte tape over the bottom part of the down tube, but I'll leave it as is.
Nice to hear you chose 3T parts for your project. I took the same path to build my C59 and I do not regret.
The only thong I will do is to remove the red stripe from the stem. Looking at the whole bike sideways, the stripe cuts the harmony of the color scheme.
Get well soon !
Best Regards.

Rico - you pulled it off again. The bike 'looks' fairy has shone on you. I didn't see it when you first posted it as I was having a sabbatical. Some better pics would be nice; the bike deserves it. 8)
