Overall weight is 6.72kg


Image
Campag Chorus shifters and Deda Superleggera RS handlebar. Superleggera means super light. Fizik bar tape is not fully taped for better aero.


Image
Deda Superleggera RS stem. Cups and headseat are from Deda too. Btw this frame is painted in 3 layers: base, gloss and matt. Those gloss accents are drowned inside matt. It gives very nice tactile sensation.


Image
Super Record brakes and a bit weird cable routing. It's for the aero because aero is everything, right?


Image
I used shimano plastic cable ends for better look and they don't make creaks. Not sure why campa makes them from alu


Image
Lightweight bottle cage and bottle. Cage is crazy light 18gr only. P.S. Oh and chekcout aero quick release. It's not quick just aero.


Image
Fulcrum Quattro carbon wheels + S-Works Turbo Cotton tyres.


Image
Deda Superleggera seatpost and Selle San Marco Aspide Superleggera replica sadle.


Image
Compact Chorus crankset on super record hubs.


Image
Chorus rear derailleur and Super Record 11-27 cassette. Both jokey wheels are on ceramic hubs. Chain is KMC.

Nice pics. Thanks for posting. In fact. I’m looking for a smallish frame for a friend to build up as she had her bike stolen. Checking out the geometry chart I see that the top tube is on the shortish side (which she needs) but probably the head tube is a little agressive for her. Other than that, it seems well proportioned with good sound geometry. Yours looks killer!

Very nice. :thumbup: I have a Deda Nerissimo frame that I really love. My only (unsolicited) suggestion for you would be to clean up the housings a bit so they give a more symmetrical look from the front.

I went for the "Maximum Smoothness" cableset and as suggested slightly imroved cable symetry.
Image
Indeed the shifting is better than before. But to my surprise this set doesn't include brake cables though it costs two times more than normal cableset. Frankly, I don't think I will buy it next time. Yes shifting is better but not twice beter.

The biggest upgrade is Bora One 50 wheels. I love them :)

Oh and I nearly forgot to mention the rear middle cage chorus HO deraruler. From now on I can use 32 cassette for big mountains which is nice.

I like it better than my Roubaix, Roubaix SL4 or light Deda DR-15 but It's really hard to describe all those tiny subjective diferences that make it superior. It's comfortable and it gives me more condifence (because of better trail I guess).

The build quality is good. The bb shell doesn't creack. The paint job is amazing. It seems like to make this glossy effect on logos and inside the fork they first painted the whole frame with glossy paint and only then then covered it with matt. You can feel thath when you touch the logos. It looks expensive and modern.

I plan to put new Deda Alanera handlebar when it's released.

Wow, even looks better with Campagnolo 12 speed. Though I should wrap the handlebar tape wrong way. Start at the top and end at the barend plugs. It looks so much better. And if you replace it once a year you don't wrap it over the other layer with your hands.
