Very nice bike. If you get as fit as Michelle Bartoli you will have no problems. What are the Lightweight's like to ride? It's difficult to believe they are so light when they look so chunky.

Thanks for the comments.Weight is around the 16lb. range.Need to get to a good scales to confirm.

As for the Lightweights,they are so fast.You can really feel the difference when accelerating on hills.They are beatifully manufactured.I had an issue with the rear wheel(went out of true after 3 rides),but it was replaced.

This is a very beautiful bike and I think it's very fast with such wheels. But I don't wonder the price of such a toy !

Pfffffff let me guess...... 8000 euro's all together?
But it's a really wonderful bike. Have fun wiht it! I envy you!


By the way, that Tacx Tao bottle cage is too ordinary for the bike. Get a Denti Super Otto.

I knew somebody would pick up on the choice of cage.Despite everything on this bike I don't want to pay silly money for something that does potentially me make go faster.

The Tao does me fine.

Well 8000 must be close I think.

about 3800 for the frame, 1200-1600 for the DA, 2000-2500 for the wheels, about 1000 for pedals, bar, stem, tires etc.....
Well, maybe it's more than 8000. :D

I don't want to think about the money side of it.Rush of blood to the head,when I saw the frame.Had to have it.

Much nicer than Colnago,etc.

You seem obsessed with bottle-cages :?: Made the same remark in optimo's thread where he's displaying his bike ......

Ik ben vooral tegen het monteren van BBB-spullen op fietsen van boven de 1000 euro. En ik zag zojuist een plaatje van de Denti bidonhouder en die vind ik gewoon heel erg mooi :) Mooier dan een Tacx Tao (die heb ik zelf trwns, dus niks echt negatiefs daarover, maar op zo'n dure fiets als die van de TS moet alles wel een beetje in balans zijn qua prijs)

That's stunning! Just hope the frame lasts you well, often wonder how long Dogmas last! Still very jealous!

Listen mate, me myself I speak dutch so i perfectly understand what you are writing but other members dont. What if everyone would start replying in there own language ? English is the only language that EVERYONE understands so i suggest you keep that in mind.
I am sorry if this sounds a little rude, its not ment as an insult or so.

Cheers
Ivan
