I am glad you like it

Last year i repainted frame and all other stuff (stem,handlebar,seatpost,fork) on mostly mat black and some glosy carbon-simple paint scheme...but nice
I also put some eaxtra carbon layers on critical points...so for sure frame it will handle me (191cm and 81-85kg)

Frame : Oria (Italy manufactured) GX2, Energija Black Orange (Slovenian brand)
Bike is strong and heavy...with Reynolds around 8kg
It has around 5seasions of racing and training (in winter too)...around 100.000km on it
Components are ITM and Campagnolo Chorus 2006

I hope it will laste at least 2 seasions

Success is how far you you bounce back up after being knocked down

Looking for an excuse to bump one of my favorite WW threads, so here's my most recent build.

Aquila aluminum frameset (small Canadian brand)
62 cm C-C (top tube 58 cm C-C)
I'm only 187 cm tall, but with long inseam I prefer big bikes.

My new Canyon Ultimate cf. I'm a student, so I'm on a "budget". Weight - 7,51kg, not really a ww but for a 62cm "budget" bike I think it's okay :) Most of the parts har from my old bike, and are purchased second-hand. The red racing zero turned out nicer on the bike then expected :)
