Summer will hopefully also bring good pix in classic terrain, neeb. Iseran, Telegraphe-Galibier, Izoard, Vars, Allos, Champs, Cayolle and Bonette are all on the menu, and A friend of mine whose hobbies include photography rides with an SLR in a bar bag on his C60. He took this one of my old bike on Col du Pré last year:

Do you still keep it? I've already regretted selling my Sempre. It was necessary to fund the Specialissima, but still I wish I kept it.

Putting the Sempre up for sale. Knowing myself I'll only use the "good bike" anyway.
As mentioned in the op I haven't bothered weighing it.

Had to throw in the towel on those Elite Ciussi Inox cages. Some bottles, not all types, generated resonating sounds in them (I seem to remember that being the reason for their last retirement). Bought a couple of shiny black plastic Elite Cannibal XC. All quiet now.
Also new tires on: Conti GP5000TL 25 mm.

Contemplating on a new wheel set. The DT Swiss PR 1400 21 (non Oxic) leads the race now.

The rider is male, running on 54, 183 cm tall, all arms and legs (seat height 80 cm), 68 kg. He likes manouverable bikes with predictable braking performance and solid feel at high speeds. His favourite ride must be the "Barcelonette Loop", cols Allos, Champs and Cayolle in that order. He hasn't bothered weighing the bike.
Wow, the pic is awesome! It's perfect combination of bike and nature!

What a lovely elegant looking bike. Personally the new 12 speed crankset looks so much better than 11 speed 4 arm set it's replaced and definitely is far nicer in person than any pictures seem to be able to show.

It's just plain wonderful. Mind you my previous was 11s 2009-15, but in comparison everything is crisper. Gearing feels "faster", at least more direct. Sometimes I think they reduced the standard lever reach a bit too much, but I have long hands, and It's nice that people with small hands now can enjoy Campag ergonomics properly.

Thanks! I also use the same 11s groupset since 2013 so I have to update soon.

Example of nice picture (my friend will probably play with it before watermarking it though) in classic terrain: Plenty of weather on the Col du Galibier Tuesday July 9th 2019.
