Feel free to order one! ;)

Not sure why - could be that I'm too low volume, or that the finished wheel will be too competitive against their dealers' stock versions.

The ones I saw were non-disk, I'm certain of it...

Nick Both is building my wheels for this Cazzo - I'll see if he knows as he'll be building all of the wheels for Oz!

Not sure about the cages either but they definitely don't look offensive in anyway. Nice looking ride so far.

I like the Chorus groupset. It is practical. It doesn't need EE brakes, the record, chorus, super record brakes are fantastic. I want Chorus on my next bike, despite having Record on my current one. Just seems much better value, and after having a Record f/d, would actually prefer the non-carbon cage on the Chrous version.

Looking forward to the finished build.

this build would probably look awsome with some anodized C Record Delta brakes :roll:

The not-quite-finished current build pic:

Waiting for the NOS Flite saddle to arrive to mount the C-Record post, hence the nasty Miche Supertype post on there for now (the only spare 27.2mm post I had). Wheels look good, but won't be staying - I'm too keen to get rolling on my FMBs!

whatever the build ...... the frame looks a lot better proportioned than some of your others..... just my opinion. Jerk knows how a bike should look......

I like the Gaulzetti frames, but after reading interviews with the guy I simply could not support anything that gives him more money to be self-righteous. He had a nothing amateur career and although he owns a bike shop I don't see how this gives him a magical insight into bike building. I know he sells the whole 'bare bones race machine' concept pretty well, but nothing about them is too stand out to justify his whole persona. I think they are clean, simple bikes if you have the cash and should remain that way.

With that said I'm most likely going Speedvagen next year instead.

Good looking bike. Did you weight the frame and the fork ?

I met him at NAHBS '12 and walked away thinking he was a bit of a prick. I would never give him my money personally, but he indeed does a good job of marketing his bikes/philosophy. Having been on aluminum bikes for the good part of last five years, I would actually love to ride one of his Corsa frames and see if they are all that they are cracked out to be, but like I said I am not buying one from him :)

That said, this one looks like it will be a very nice build. Also, Rich mentioned on another forum that the ride is good enough for him to think about sidelining his Baum...
