first 50 mile ride report:
first observation is that 2011 campag super record seems faster and slicker than the athena 2011 on my other bike which i wasn't expecting. for example the front mech shifting on SR is the fastest i have ever used.
my previous favourite groupset for shift quality up to today was still shimano 7800.
however, the aesthetics, quality and shifting precision of campag SR is a notch ahead. i'm surprised how much better this groupset is. the 11 speed KMC chain presented no operational issues so far.
after about 1 hour ride time, i reflected the lack of road buzz.
the backroads i ride on have suffered greatly in the last two winters.
i have owned performance orientated bikes at both ends of the comfort spectrum including a Focus izalco extreme carbon (stiff as the name suggests and giving you all the road buzz) and a litespeed ti ghisallo (comfy and smooth).
however the peg, while stiffer than anything else i have ridden also has marginally less road buzz than the ghisallo so i can already see how useful this characteristic will be on longer rides.
precision under stress
i tried an uphill 100m burst of speed in the big ring in traffic and the bike felt immensely together. pulling hard on the bars did not change the response either: the frame and fork stiffness is completely matched. its not just the BB that is stiff. i am sure other brands achieve this too, but this is a first for me.
descending at speed
not much to say other than higher speeds i reached don't change the handling behavior at all. some bikes can start to handle slightly differently above 35 mph, especially over bumps.
the peg remains completely calm. i didn't get it above 45mph today though.
cornering and agility
today i had the confidence a couple of times to pick a corning line i would not normally attempt on other bikes. i don't know why i felt i could do it, but somehow i had the confidence already.
interestingly some of the nervousness from the carbonsports lightweight wheels is reduced on the peg compared with the focus izalco they were originally fitted to.
the peg is about 1.5 lbs heavier than the bike it replaced, which is not noticeable on any climb.
subjectively, it felts more agile and more resistent to seated and out of the saddle efforts.

Would appreciate another update when you have had a chance to ride the bike a few more times.
Let me repeat what a beauty it is... bravo. You are very fortunate to be able to ride that masterpiece.

Maybe you could order one of Dario's 'Falz' forks, when they become available - and get him to paint it to match.
Totally agree regarding the feel of these things out on the road, my responsorium wipes the floor with everything I've ridden to date and you really don't notice the extra grams.
i also intend to follow up with a further ride report after a few more miles.
the only thing i might change is to go with a carbon stem in the future. originally i wanted to match the diameter of the frame tubes better, but the plain alloy does not look as nice.
i am waiting to see what Roobay fits to his Peggy
removed all the decals except for the white stripes for now. just to see.
not sure whether to keep or remove. any views?
new 10cm stem with white stripes
old 12cm stem with no stripes/decals
