Just taken ownership of a new Wilier. It's absolutely stock atm and weighs in at 7.81kg. Granted, it's not the lightest, but I'm more than happy with it being stock. After getting a fitting, a large frame was right for me. What do you guys think?

Was there the option for the alloy cranks? As they might have been an ever closer match - hard to know though without seeing some on it.

Otherwise fantastic! And i hope you're a Reds supporter :P

I like it. I also wonder about how the alloy cranks would look.

And I also would like to borrow the Ducati this weekend, please.

Never mind the bike, the secrets to a lawn like that would be even more handy!

Ducati you say? It's an 848 rather than the 1098...

If I may drag this back on topic for a moment :lol: there was an alloy option available in the shop but I wanted a bit of carbon bling. And to my eye the carbon set of the front end better than the alloy but point taken. As for the lawn, weekly evening cutting and lots and lots of water [which is kindly provided for by British summer] :lol: 8)

:thumbup: Very nice Izoard, which is the nicest Wilier model IMO.

The 848 :thumbup: and it also has Termignoni on :shock:
