I am astounded with the ride. Not sure if the smoothness is due to the tyres (25's) or the wheels of the frameset (or a combination of the lot) but smooth doesn't even come close to how it rides, yet when I want to GO- it responds without hesitation.
Its beyond my expectations!
Here it is in action on my second ride on it (100km of hills out to Kinglake and back)-
I come into frame about 3.22 into this video. Love the change of music when I appear into frame! LOL
How do you like your wheels? Did you get them custom built?
I'm strongly leaning on building a set of wheels with A23 rims and some Campagnolo hubs, probably 32 spokes on each. Mainly I want to put on miles on some reliable wheels. Would you classify the wheels as comfortable compared to other wheels?

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
jediknights- No its just standard oversize 31.8.
Powerful Pete- I'll weight it next time I ride into work (bike shop with Park scales). Its not uber light (1850g wheels for example) so at a guess id say low 7's. I didn't build it with just weight in mind, it was a balance of usability, comfort, looks, price AND weight. I chose Force for example on asthetics and price but Red shifters on useability (zero loss). Very happy with the outcome. Wouldn't change a thing (except the tyres- jury is still out on that)!
Down the track when I'm closer to race fitness again I'll get some deep carbon wheels. Im thinking Mavic Carbon SLR's (clincher, Al brake track, aero, durable) and if i shop wisely less than $2000!
Have you had many broken saddles? Since you going the rubber wedge route

You are right. Smoothness, compactness and liveness is what describes this frame in each pedal stroke.
A Wilier cento1 is my dream bike as well. there's only 2 carbon bikes i would like to own, a supersix and this. but the Wilier is just pure art!
The superleggera and the slr are even more sexy, but too far out of my price range (unless I find a really good deal)
enjoy the bike.
ps how do you guys balance the bikes in your pics? I'm always wondering.
yongkun- No problems with the Token bolt so far. It was hard to tighten the lot up and keep the chain watcher in place but I eventually got there.
quattrings- No tricks, just Photoshop - easy! There was a set of hands holding the back wheel by the tyre only. A bit of rubber stamping and copy and paste sections of the tyre over the fingers and its done.
The custom engraved headset cap turned up today and has been fitted. Not sure if I will keep it. Now I just need some more kit to see me through a Melbourne winter and some new shoes (one of the straps is about to snap off my current shoes) and I'm set for quite a while. The Lake CX401's are taking my fancy atm.
Great looking stretch of road in that second clip
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!
