Hi all

Inspired by Michel's beautiful 2015 Diamante I've finally gotten my act together to put together a thread for my baby.

Here she is:

Build:
Size 48
Campag Chorus
Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio saddle
3T Rotundo Pro bars
38mm Boyd carbon clincher wheels
Veloflex Corsa tyres, 23mm
Arundle Mandible cages

Total weight is around 6.9kg.

Some more pics:

That looks great, well done.

The only thing I might change would be a set of Campy Boras instead of the Boyd, but that is just me :)

Only the second Diamante I've seen, but I'm really loving the lines with that short stack stem.

I couldn't agree more. I'd love a set of the new Bora clinchers. I can't fault the Boyds though; they've been awesome wheels, especially as they cost half what Bora Ones would.

I knew virtually nothing about them until I saw this in a bike shop over a year ago. It was lust at first sight.

Went our for a couple of rides. What should I say...I love it :-D and the boras are so smooth to ride and handling - especially in windy conditions - is great. Something that appears quite often in northern germany :wink:

Nice. Hmmm, might be time to start saving up for some Boras...

Looks reeeeeeally yummy... but not sure this geometry will fit most of riders due to the stem design, and the bike will be wired if the owner remains some spacers
