Whilst my Parlee Z3 project is experiencing some frustrating delays, I thought a replacement to retire my daily ride was in order (2007 C2C Bianchi).

Loved the US handmade craftsmanship so much, I had a Serotta Nove frame shipped to OZ and built up (Carbon Athena 11s 2010 and Shamals)

Crappy Iphone pic attached. Better pics to come once I have been fitted on it (i.e. fork cut and final stem purchased, using the Bianchi's for the moment). Will be keeping the cheapie Onda knock-off fork the moment - no complaints about it actually...albeit it is a porker at 400g uncut).

Not sure about the colour of the Dave-O cages. Might switch one to black or both to alloy. Not sure yet.

The Serotta's ride is so much more alive than the Bianchi (i.e. stiffer and reacts much faster, doesnt feel like you fight with the bike when stomping the pedals), cant wait to get the fit sorted and the fork cut.

It looks great, except for the fork. That fork is just an eyesore really :D

Agreed.

Fork feels fine but the styles clashed so much, it was starting to really annoy me. Accordingly a reynolds UL fork is being installed today (pictures shortly) - will suit the bike much better and as a bonus its 100g lighter!

Nice bike. Was the squiggly fork supplied with the frame, or is that what you had and decided to use?

The fork was an Onda knock-off the seller preferred (ridewise) over the original Reynolds Ouzo Pro. The proposed UL fork has labelling in blue on it so it should match spot on with ethe blue Serotta logo.

Looks like it was made for it! Pretty happy (will see how it rides on the weekend).

It's a keeper :thumbup:

Reynolds fork may still be the best IMHO.

Are those Carbones SLs? How do you like them?

The aero advantage is great once you are past the 32kmph/20mph mark. They are not light but are very strong/stiff. I like to think of them as 90% the performance of Zipp's for much less coin.
