Hello WW, I'm new to the forum here. I've lurked for a while and this is my first post. I turned 40 this past December and my brother decided to encourage my two and a half year old love for cycling by buying me my dream frame, a Wilier Triestina Zero.7. I already had Enve 65s, PRO Vibe Carbon cockpit, speedplay pedals and Dura Ace 7900 on my old Specialized S-Works SL3 so this really makes my bike my dream bike. I just want to replace my old Enve cages with Arundels because they will match the frame better. I had to switch seatposts because the Specialized required a wider post.

I absolutely love this bike. It's the fastest machine I've ever ridden and I'm not that fast. :D

I'd love to post photos but I'm having a hard time getting it to work with my Flickr account. Any help or suggestions?

Thanks g_doraz. I wanted it to look as perfect as possible. I considered going with the red decals for my Enve wheels but decided it would take away from the frame which should be the focus.

I've tried several saddles including different Fizik and Selle Italia. It's the one thing that will remain that's from the Big S.

Nice and classy

I always thought Willier gives Pinarello a good run for the money.

Welcome to the forum. That' a dream frame to start!
I would replace the saddle, and the cages.

I know what you mean about the saddle. I've tried litterally 24 saddles and the Toupe is the one for me and will stay with me for a while. Aesthically it doesn't fit but comfort can't be overlooked. Stick with what works for you.
