A nice classic bike... if you would have cleaned it and changed the bar tape.

Looks very 2005 though, with the old Campy stuff (wheels, brakes, crankset). However, very nice.

You seem to need a lot of setback on your saddle!! :shock:


And euh, Michael, doesn't your new team ride Prorace bikes?

How do you feel about riding with "doctor Dave" Bruylandts in one team in fact?



Happy new year and enjoy your bike!

With saddle in such a seatback position, I think you will not go 57cm next time. :)

It looks like a decent bike to me. Not too lightweight but looks like it will do the job perfectly!

How cares if it is dirty. Leave the mud on! It shows you actually do some serious miles on it.

Nice ride, it is great to have all those size options with Colnago to get your perfect fit. Dirty bar tape? Who cares! What are you supposed to change it at that point? You ride it till it rips right?

Clean bike + clean bar tape = poser

Dirty bike + worn saddle + worn bar tape + clean drivechain = look out

Nothing looks better than a $6,000 machine with a little road film.

Nice bike.

well this is the website of the team as you mentioned;

http://www.wielersportteam.be/continent ... gteam.html

official name is Klaipeda Splendid CT.


To be honest I've never met dokter dave, so I can't tell you anything about him. But the press release says that dave will not have a professional license next year. He will keep his job and cycle only for the fun of it. Considering he also wanted to start in la marmotte for example it's obvious he loves the sport.


About my setback and saddle. I just like it this way. 8)

Oh; about prorace. the sponsor is prorace and we will use prorace bikes. i think i keep this bike for training or something, I don't now yet!

And what about Orbea? As I know almost all of your lithuanian teammates i heard that you'll ride at least Orbea frames? And aren't you training at the moment in Spain with the rest of team?

Half of the team is in spain! I'm still here in The Netherlands. Next week the group training will start in Belgium.

As far as I know, we race Prorace frames?

Do they have already Orbea? Because at first orbea was in the picture, later a other Italian brand, and now it is Prorace.
