The Cyclo has Centaur 10 speed shifting. FSA cranks with KCNC rings. Planet X brakes. Wheels are Alpha's with Sapim and Circus Monkey hubs, which turned really smooth, and so easy to service. An erratic build maybe, but I like to try different components and how they perform...

I ordere the last week a Condor Acciaio, to replace my BMC SL01 full ultegra (that I am trying to sell). I want to build up the Condor with a Campagnolo group, and (based on my budget) I am thinking if to go with a Carbon Centaur or a black alloy Athena. Suggestions?

For the moment the wheelset will be brand new Zonda

I just prefer the look of the carbon cranks, is it new 11s your looking to get ?

Honestly I am coming from a n ultegra 6700 10s, so I have no idea if the 11s will give me an advantage. Also I think that the difference in weight between the Athena (alloy) and the Centaur (carbon) should be minimal.

Wow nice! Tell us more. What tubing are those? Who built it? Hows the hydraulics system?

The frame was built by Ryan at Oak Cycles- it's fillet brazed Columbus MAX.

I've only ridden it the ten miles home, so can't really give a detailed review- I can tell you that the brakes are awesome.
