Introducing my new ride, a Wilier Cento1 SR in Fluo Green w/ (mostly) old SRAM Red. Big thanks to my LBS (Véloro Bicycles
) for jumping through hoops and getting this imported for me. The green isn't a color the US distributor is normally doing.
6.7kg (14.8 lbs) with race wheels.
Large 2013 Wilier Cento1 SR
SRAM Red shifters and cranks with Force FD, rings and Rival RD and brakes
Selle Italia Flite Kit Carbonio saddle
Look Ti Blade pedals
Ritchey Carbon Matrix 4-Axis stem (120mm)
Williams Maxim ACS aluminum bars
2010 Reynolds Assault tubulars w/ Vittoria Evo Corsa, ti skewers and SRAM Red cassette
2011 Hed Jet 4 clinchers
2012 Williams S19 clinchers w/ Mich Pro4 25mm tires, normal skewers and lower end SRAM cassette
Could get this build's weight down a good bit with lighter brakes, carbon bars and FSA Evo386 cranks. I'm happy for the moment though and my bank account is looking a little lean.
Super impressed with the ride. Very, very, very stiff. It feels fast but is a bit punishing over rough road. This is not an old man's charity ride bike! Stiffer and more solid feeling then my Scott Addict or my Ridley Damocles. Reminds me of the CAAD10 I used to have. Would like to ride the two back to back.
Love the way it handles. Very active and quick but still stable. Did one quick 1.6 mile, -6%, twisty mountain road descent with it and found the bike very confidence inspiring. Haven't really pushed it though.
