Hi everybody,

here's my new Pavo.
I had an opportunity on this new frameset.
The geo seemed to fit me well, I like the design (shape and colors) and heard lots of good things, so I gave it a try.

Image

It's basicly my Ridley Orion --> http://fotos.rennrad-news.de/p/296578 transformed into a Simplon.

frame and fork: Simplon Pavo NetApp 2012 (size 53)
headset: Acros
wheels: DT Swiss Tricon RR1450
tires: Hutchinson Fusion3 tubeless
group: Campagnolo Centaur Carbon Compact 2009
chain: KMC X10SL
selle: Fizik Antares VS Kium
seatpost: Deda Superzero
stem: Deda Zero100 en 110mm titane bolts
bar: 3T Rotundo Pro
pedals: Look Keo Blade
quickreleases: Tune AC16/17
Rotor Chaincatcher
bartape: Lizard Skins
bottlecages: chinese Bontrager rxl carbon


First ride (under the rain) was great.
Image

looking forward to more kilometers.

c*

Wicked! Agree, Tricons suit it, stock up on spare spokes though, I've seen a few go...

I'm waiting for new silver skewers.
Also thought getting rid of the red decals on the Tricons.
What do you think?

I have always had a sweet spot for Simplons... and this is no exception.

Throw on a set of high profile carbon clinchers... and it will be rocking!

Congrats on your new Pavo! Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed my Pavos! It's is certainly one of the best frames out there.

Thanks all.

First impression is great.
Very stable bike, yet quick and responsive.
Stiff enough (for my enormous überpower) and comfortable.

PS: 44mm carbon tubulars are planned for this summer.

Lovely bike. We really do need more Simplons on this board!
