I'm in love with Amaro Loren since first time I saw it. So I decided to pull the trigger for one in August after negotiating with the wife. This will be my first steel bike. Hopefully production will take place sometime next month.
Geometry is based on my SuperSix Evo, size 58. I'm 187cm and 85 kg. Loren will have longer head tube to eliminate the need for spacers and slightly shorter top tube to compensate my non-flexible upper body and beer gut.
Color will be Amaro Blue:
I'll keep the build as Euro as possible:
Frame: Columbus Spirit, Life and SL tubes. 44mm headtube. Hope integral headset.
Fork: 1-1/8 to 1/5 tapered. Current candidate is Dedacciai Stream but I'm also considering Columbus Fel as it's lighter and seems more elegant to me. I'm also open to suggestions except Enve. Straight forks only.
Cockpit: Deda Zero100, Superzero seatpost.
Groupset: Campagnolo Chorus 2015
Saddle: I haven't decided yet but I'll give supplied Essax saddle a go.
Pedals: Look Keo Blade 2 - 16 Nm
Wheels: I currently own a set of Reynolds Assault clinchers and Fulcrum Racing 3. I'll be selling Fulcrums this month and I'm thinking to build a set with new Record hubs, Ambrosio Nemesis rims and CX-Rays. Second option is to get a set of Shamal Mille. I'm leaning more towards Ambrosio route as I want to try tubulars and it's 2/3 price of Shamals. This is where I'm also open to suggestions.
I'll update this thread when Aimar starts to build the frame.
