All Wilier ISP´s have the feature that you can cut the ISP and mount a regular seatpost.

I get an information that it should be presented at the end of July, but of course nothing for sure here. If I'll get some more informations I'll let you know. Will travel to a stage race next week and will probably meet some people who know a bit more about it.. :thumbup:


To my knowledge it will be shown to dealers next week when Wilier hold their annual presentation of next years models in Italy.
They showed the Zero7 last year at that time and it was almost impossible to get hold of before march this year so that could be an indication of when the new Cento1 is available. I´ve been told by my local Wilier rep that the new frame features a more aggressive geometry than the current Cento1 , I´m guessing closer to Zero7 in geometry then since SLR geometry only fits topend riders (or at least extremely flexible ones)

I'm not sure if I like the shifter cables being routed on the top section of the downtube. I sweat alot and can see sweat dripping on the cables, causing corrosion

I love the ISP's on two of my bikes - the difference is noticeable. I cant account for the balance the Cento achieves between comfort and stiiffness any other way

Same here becks, just picked up a lovely orange 2011 from my not so local bike shop. Think she'll get dressed up in record. The new one won't be on sale til some time next year in all likelihood and I'm sure the current one is more than enough bike for me. :D

Plus something about this new frame's colours and graphics makes it look a bit Power Rangers-ey. I'm sure it's better in the flesh so I'll wait I see it then.

Real weird cable configuration. I agree with the above posts RE graphics, I'd add frame shapes as well. The curvy Cento was a beauut! The newer ones, not so much :noidea:

And it's definitely not a 'cross bike?

Quite like the yellow one actually, but that weird elbow on the top tube makes it look like they miscalculated the angles and thought "cock it".
