That paint is awesome.

That must be a perfect bike for uphill TT :roll: 8) How do you like the bike? A friend rode one years ago, he really loved it, except on wet road. He found the rear too much twitchy :twisted:

Thanks SSG. The frame started out life a garish mixture of red/yellow/black, but I had it repainted by HotTubes to a blue fade. I later got fed up with the all blue bike and so I removed the paint from the rear triangle and applied a urethane clear coat.

I really love the Karbon2. Its nimble, stiff and comfortable. The short chainstays do require a bit of care to keep things under control in a sprint, but at the same time they give a feel of very immediate power transfer.

Question for all you wiler folks. I'm looking at a 2004 Imperiale Deluxe to build for a friend. Should I keep looking or is that still considered a nice frame?

the bearings in the Uno bb? They just pop out.

Yes, the bearings in the mortirolo headset should also just pop out. They aren't "Pressed" in there. If they are stuck, there is either a huge issue with your frame or they just need some tapping to get out.
