Had our teak main door refurbished. Makes for an ok background, no?

She behaved superb in the Alps. We caught some traffic coming into Arvieux from the Izoard, so only 85 km/h max speed recorded.
Apart from being dead stable at high speeds, it’s a terrific technical descender, the Specialissima.

Very nice door. I’m a bit of a door snob I must admit.

Looks like an idyllic setting for a house
I like the verdant reflections and the lone cottage seen in the glass

Thanks for the nice comments on our door. My wife’s aunt and uncle actually live in the cottage. It’s countryside all round where we live, farmscape and plenty of gravel roads. I’ve put a pair of Hutch Sector 28 on the Shamals for that sort, and we also have an UCI 1.2 race exploiting them. It’s called Gylne Gutuer, try Google. Here’s the Norwegian Cup Version of the race passing our spot of land four years ago:

Really nice front door. What is the actual weight, with and without the front door knob? :mrgreen:

Challenge Paris-Roubaix makes a pretty bike even prettier.

Pic also proves that size 59 can be right for 183 cm body height.

The stack height of the bike is OK i think. But the reach at 397mm is way too much for me.
Bikes:

Ax Lightness Vial EVO Race (2019.01.03)
Open *UP* (2016.04.14)
Paduano Racing Fidia (kind of shelved)
