Here is my new Casati Laser. I ordered this last year and have been slowly getting things together. I live in the US but ordered thru RaceScene in the UK, who were great to work with. Gave them my measurements, selected the color (a Casati Campionissimo standard color) and waited about 3 months. The La especiale is the Laser that has internal cable routing and internal seat clamp. The electric version and integrated headset were a custom request, as was the painted stem.

Still lowering the stem and will re-cut the fork at some point. Not sure about the white bar tape, may go with some black leather. The EPS is beyond anything imagined, and is very easy to set up and dial in.

Very nice. Consider keeping the white tape and switching to a white san marco zoncolan saddle.

You are one lucky guy! A fantastic bike and, from the looks of it, great weather to ride it in!

I also like the wheels very much. Go real well together with classic, thin steel frames. Though I wonder if they look good with black tyres too. Please take a photo should you ever mount such tyres.

As long as saddle and tape are colour-coordinated, I think black or white bar tape would look equally well. Especially since the bike has both colours as well (fork and chainstays).

The only thing I personally would alter is the bottle holders. In my eyes those elite steel holders don't look good on any frame, not even steel ones ;-) I would prefer modern, carbon ones.

Best regards form snow-covered Dresden!
