This is my Bike. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me, my bike is useless. Without my bike, I am useless.

You can buy them from Gilbert Cattoir its a pro Mechanic of the Davitamon-Lotto team

He lives in Overmere (Belgium)

the price whas 1400-1500€ I think.

Welcome Giantlover.


About those wheels made by Gilbert Cattoir. He is known to be one of the best in wheelbuilding here in Belgium. He often makes a set like Giantlover has one, with the Edco hubs (see topic about Edco hubs) and (normally) Sapim stickers on the rims. These carbon rims are Corima aero rims though (Sapim makes spokes, no rims).
Since you're a lot in cyclocross, Boogie, have a look at some riders wheels. Quite a few have them: Nys rode them (not any more -> sponsorship), but Commeyne still has them, Jan Soetens, perhaps Vannoppen...
