m4k1, I did not like the big shifters od the DA. Maybe got also a bit bored by it ;)

brahl, thanks! I like those tan sidewalled tyres, but.... I hated to inflate them everyday. And, they are not cheap....


Better pics will follow.

Now then Lance, you seem to have won just as many Tours as Hamstrong.

A message for you. This bike deserves good old bright and shiny silver D-Ace 7800.

Only thing missing is your Disco kit.

something with ud-carbon look. i don´t like the look of the carbon weave. i´m sure they are great wheels though...it´s purely esthetical.

Agree about the wheels....UD would be perfect! As I already pointed out in November 2012 :D

But I just dont particularly like the that carbon pattern. If it happens they stay with me, I will make some matte black decals from nipples to carbon brake track to cover the pattern.
I think Reynolds or Dura Ace C50 tubular wheelsets are perfect for that bike! Unlabeled of course!;)
