New road bike ride:
- Pasculli Altissimo custom frame
- power2max Type S Rotor 3D+ with Rotor Q-Rings 52.36 (will be changed for Specialized S-Works version)
- Shimano 9000 DI2
- Citec Carbon 3000 16/20 spokes
- Conti GP Attack / Force
- Velocite TLCS seat post
- Fizik Arione saddle (temporary)
- Syntace F139 105mm (temporary, fitting only)
- AX-Lightness handlebar

Sorry, haven't had a chance to weigh it yet. Looking to install a more compact handlebar with thicker diameter and maybe a flat top - suggestions are welcome, looking at the Ritchey Evo Curve.

Pretty excited about it, needs some work though.

I've been waiting for someone on this site to show with an Altissimo!

Claimed weight is pretty low (680) - but your frame size is kinda large. What was the actual frame weight before you built it up?

Will try to get some better shots next ride :). I didn't build it up, Pasculli did, so I haven't got the exact weights. I asked for extra stiff and a bit heavier, due to my levers (6'7" and 87kg) and it's a bit heavier than usual. Two of my colleagues have the light version and it does come in at the mark. They were with us at Eurobike - must say their frames are very very nice.

Bidon has to go - was so busy fine tuning things on the first ride that I forgot.

What do you recon - would the Ritchey Carbon C240 stem look good?

Hi guys,

still only two short rides on it. A few variables changed from my last bike, so I am still trying to sort through what comes from where. The first change will be to remove the AX-Lightness bars and to install Deda Zero 100s. I am too used to shorter reach compact bars with a flat transition to the hoods, so I'm looking forward to that change.

On the second ride I must say it felt really nice. It feels light on the front with the same drop and reach as my previous bike and subjectively it feels very reactive out of saddle. I guess the beefy tubes and stiff wheelset help there. On bigger bumps it's a bit more direct than my Geos, but then again I have quite a bit less seat post showing.

Yup, the frames are made in Italy, but afaik Pasculli takes a lot of decisions with regards to customization.

In a week I will go on training camp in the Canaries - then I will hopefully have time to take more and better pics and to give more detailed info.

So far very impressed!
