How about

Ride looks great bugman, really nice combinations going on there.
Makes me sad, I miss my old XL carbon. :cry:
Don't beleive Tikka, what the hell is a tennis director anyway.
Last time I heard he was a toilet cleaner in a tennis club. :wink:

Thanks for all the great ideas.

I was thinking about getting the DORIC-TEAM post, Arione CX with K:ium rail (Acqua e Sapone team colors) and a pair of red Arundels.

It seems kinda funny to build my bike around the 3T stem but I'm not happy with the Zipp cages anyway, plus always wanted to get a new seat post and longer/wider seat.
What do you weenies think about that idea?

EDIT: Sorry about not getting the weight tochnics and cerro. I keep trying to get into the physics building but run out of time. Legs 11, I don't care if Tikka cleans ass! As long as he can hold a racket, he's good in my book.

For chainrings, try either stronglight CT2 or the ever classic dura-ace. Didn't notice if it was a compact crank though...if so, the Stronglights' are pretty nice...

Sweet build. Those parts will look awesome on it.

What stem length is that? Waiting to see all the redline finishing kit on your Bianchi before passing judgement (not convinced it will go with the Bianchi turquoise but more than convinced it will go with itself!). Saw a Bianchi branded ITM K-Sword bar and stem on eBay recently (call it integrated but its the two seperate components together!) - would have finished it off a treat! Loving the bike though, don't know why (maybe its the stealthy Reynolds) but its making your frame look v.technical (which is nice).

Update for all who care (^_^)

Went to the LBS tonight and test rode a used Arione Wing Flex, felt great under my prostate so got it. While I was there one of the mechanics wanted to weigh her. He said it felt like 16.3lbs, she came out to 16.22lbs!!! That guy is GOOD, I thought it would be 17-18lbs with the new saddle.
Next step is the cages and seat post (I never thought I'd turn into a fashion weenie).

Image

EDIT: @ bencolem...
130mm -17°. I cannot use anything less than -17°, I prefer -23° so ITM K-Sword is not for me.

I like the red striped arione and 3t stem. And some red color bits in your red grouppo. Looks really great!

Wait, are so tennis courts the ones just off the trail by Magnason Park?

Great looking bike btw! Where do you ride? I've never seen you rolling around before.... big city I guess.

Looks great. Bianchi celeste and red apparantly matches pretty good.

This is by far my favorite bike on WW, light, but not extremely light, italian and a treat for the eyes!
