Traditional methods allow for adding a cm or two to the top tube, adjusting STA etc., as needed for odd proportions. So, really, the bikes all still ride the same. There is no magic in a Gaulzetti that cannot be found in any other bike with Italian stage geo. :lol:

No mention of "magic" here - just an amazing bike. Besides, aren't most bikes based off of 'Italian stage geo'??

If you want comparisons, my Baum - which my Gaulzetti geometry is based off of - has only been off of the turbo trainer to ride in the open air once since I got the Gaulzetti in February, and the Gaulzetti is head and shoulders better than my Pegoretti was.

Biketart that looks a lot better without the white. Can i ask why you switched to Tune cranks and what benefits you have gained?
Good job :thumbup:

The main reason for the switch to Tune cranks is that I am donating the Chorus groupset to a project I have coming later this year, and because I had them spare (I've tried to sell them a few times over the last year but nobody wants them!). There's no real benefit other than the weight loss (not a target for me) and a return to standard ring sizes (previous Chorus cranks were 52/36).

How did you de-logo the seatpost? I have one as well and acetone doesn't seem to work.

Cheers

Rub harder and for longer - acetone is all I used!

Very nice bike. I liked the first build the best (with low profile wheels, white saddle and the Miche post), but I am sure the ride of the latest build is better.

Boom! It was that Miche post that was disturbing me before. Looks fantastic now. Don' t change a thing. Understated elegance.

Some paint chips led to rust, then the rust started spidering under the paint. Cue a respray with a slight design update - which happens to include a purple pearl top coat... Guess the title is out of date now eh?!:

DA9000 this time, and the Tune stem & cranks will soon be joined by the new Tune Krummes Stück setback seatpost.
