Oh,i want to say that the Mapei one is just a bit wrong. Mapei haven't sponsored a top flight team for years, so why would I want to ride something that randomly advertises a ceramic tile mortar company?Image And there just doesn;t seem to be as much skill applied. Take away the printed decals and you are left with a blue and white frame. At least with the decor colourways all of the masking and airbrushing is hand applied and takes time and skill to do.

I hope the couple of parts are proper handlebars and brake levers ;)

Thanks, I have a set of Veloflex with tan sidewalls that will go on the hyperons when these Vittoria Corsas wear out.

About the flite, it's beautiful and gives a wide and flat sitting area, while still having a narrow nose.

It has enough padding and flex while still being firm, in general I like it, and feels good, but as is wider on the rear I feel it a little more on the hamstring-glute join area.

I still don't know if its the saddle or if I am just paying more attention to it, I did setup the SLK back to test ride it, and noticed I also feel it on that one, so I just put the flite back, maybe it's a matter of getting used to it.

ah! that C-50 is sooooo nice.

my ex #1 bike was a EP on ST02, it was indeed pretty 52 sloping, just sold it when I got the C50 on traditional.

Calnago,
What a collection you've got, class man chapeau. I can't even say which one I like best, they're all that nice. I have the same wheelset build coming up as your nemesis + record hubs. What's the length of those dt spokes you're using btw?

Here's my to add to this awesome thread. Keep it going

@Calnago

I told you those black tires would really set off those Boras on the EPQ! That 80th anniversary SR is incredible however i think the matte carbon would compliment the MTBK matte paint better than the glossy carbon bits on the EPQ, but i'm just splitting hairs. I'm also glad you went back to the original PR99 Seatpost!

And here I thought you had an unbelievable collection simply with the EPQ and C59; both your and Salsa Lover's C-50s are more than just bikes. They embody all that is beautiful about cycling.
