The build will be something like the following:
Campy 10 spd
Team SLR or Flite
Titanium Keywin pedals
...not sure on wheels
Here's some info on the bike, and hopefully I'll have mine soon to show off!

Can't wait to see the finished build and a ride report.
Kinda reminds me a little of the Time RXR with that down tube and seat tube cut out, and a bit like a Pinarello wavy back end.
Still a beautiful frame thought!
I am pretty excited about this... I would be even more so if I had green Boras I may hold off 'til around x-mas or the new year to pick up another wheelset, especially since I'll mainly be using the beaters until then. Either way it's gonna be a sweet bike, I'm sure of it!
@Tarz: Considering the RXR and Pinas are two of my favorite frames, aesthetically, it's one reason I like this frame so much!
I have been talking with the folks over there for a while and getting to know the owner of Formigli USA. They are super great, very nice folks! I got this frame sponsored to me and have become a representative of Formigli USA. I've seen quite a few of these frames in person, decided I wanted one... I couldn't be happier with my situation! Sadly, I will likely have to wait until the end of the season to build it up and ride it
I'll post up as the build progresses, I get weights on the fork, frame, etc., and whatever else!
Actually, the reason I am having to wait until the end of the season is with fit issues. I've had a few issues with my knee this season and don't want to swap to a different bike in the middle of racing... especially when my knee has cleared up!! I don't want to chance messing something up and racing on it. It'll be another season or two before I have any team deals of that nature (hopefully)

Formigli are not that common here, but you do see them on the road every so often. Always heard positive things about them.
