Love the wheels. I may try an offset seat post as Peg's geometry is designed to be used with one.

...except that the rear is built backwards (if you're being really picky) :(

Still, really great bike overall :thumbup:

A quick update with the new WR setback post and a switch of bar to Deda Presa's. My riding position is much better now.

I've probably put 2k miles on this bike now (weather has been terrible in the UK), what can I tell you about the ride? It's not carbon, but it's plenty stiff enough for my 80kg, the ride quality is great, it's not super smooth like a Cervelo RS, but plenty comfortable enough for 200mile days. In short I'm loving it and can't wait for the weather to improve!

It's better. It needs black bottle cages IMO.

I actually think the cages look really nice on this bike. The same goes for pretty much everything else on this bike!

Gorgeous.

Is that a Falz fork painted to match ? Did Dario do this ? Most of the ciavete paint scheme I have seen have a Falz that is single color.

Thanks Guys.

LionelB, this is the Mizuho fork (its a year to old for the new Falz), and yes Dario painted it to match.

unreal. could be the most attractive frameset ever. FWIW, I still ride my fondriest steel frameset from time to time. There is actually still an upgrade you can make to that beauty. Swap out the mizuno fork for an enve. outstanding bike.
