Very nice, and great pictures.

I haven't managed to part with my C40 - it's about 12 years old now and still going strong, although considerably less shiny than yours. Despite not exactly being a WW the ride more than compensates. Whenever I lend it to friends they always comment on the ride quality.

Awesome, Mt. Fuji looks like a great place for riding. I love the last pic and the painting. I'm guessing it's an historic location?

Do you have any pictures showing what the road's like on Mt. Fuji, or at least describe it - gradient, length, width, traffic, temperature range, snow on/not on the road, etc.?

I fell in love with Japan after I watched Lost in Translation. Amazing country I would love to visit one day. Must be wonderful to ride in Mt. Fuji area on this beautiful bike. It's close to a perfect build with one of the top carbon frames ever made. Altough I would go with all Italian build, especially for the bars and stem, but otherwise perfect :thumbup:

Where are "Italian" bars and stems, such as Deda and ITM, actually made?
