Cheers guys!
Actually it was more like a 9 months pregnancy by trying to get all the parts but quiet happy with the result!

stunning bikes - simple, clean, looking very 'down to business' so to speak. and it seems we ride a very similar fit - are you ~175-178 by any chance?

Beautiful bikes, all well executed. Classic bend bars always look great.

Thanks!
Im just below that at 174, usually ride frames around 53/54 as I prefer a little bit more compact frame.

Due to a house project and now this virus shite, some projects I have in store (from years) will collect much more dust than expected!

Got a new Columbus fork (basically the same model minus the paint), set up new tires and Ti cages.
Pleased with the result.

It's been long since I uploaded a picture of my own bike in here and as this is the only forum worth visiting I thought I'd share my actual stable starting by what have been my daily ride in the past 2/3 years.

More to come later on.
Lovely bike :-) What bars are they...Deda Zero 100 SHALLOW?

Lovely!
I'd be tempted to run the lightweights on the passoni. There's just something about that combo....
Anyway great collection!

That passoni is super hot.. Bet she rides smoothly.. Would look beautiful with LW but maybe would sap some sexy smoothness!??

It does ride super smooth but it's also more crisp than what I was expecting.
It's really a fun ride with a classic look.
I do use a set of Corima only because at the time I got it I found those wheels basically in brand new condition and Campagnolo freehub; those hubs are like butter but a bit heavy when going uphill.

If I can find a Campagnolo freehub for the LW I might do a test to see how much it changes the ride feeling.

If you do be sure to take some pics.
I love LW freehub set up, just pull the whole freehub/ cassette off and transfer it, great for transferring between lw wheelsets. Not sure if they are still like that though.
