Saddle weighs 238g.
Also adjusted the shifters a bit lower.
Heard a noise like something is loose riding over bumps or rough roads.
Turned out the rear hub developed excessive play after 5 rides. A little play is normal, but I could pretty much move the rim left to right.
The preload adjustment solved it, but I had to set it tighter than zipp's recommendation.
As for the ride, it's sublime
I'm running Super Record and a pair of Cosmic SLR's on it. Did a centuary they day I bought it and my god it was fantastic. Last week was I the Pyrenees doing stages 16/17 of the tour and I can report its the most rewarding bike I've owned. Very nibble,smooth and stiff. No jaring responses from it. I like the fact that the rear seat stays are so thin they iron out any vibrations. Also hit my top speed of 58.1mpg down Superbagneres!
I'm new to this forum so will upload some pictures this evening.
If anyone is interested in getting one, salden is running a sale

I am not affiliated with this shop, just thought it might be of interest to some of you.
Except, I am taking the full team replica approach, so that means DA 7900 levers & derailleurs with FSA K-Force bar, stem, crank & brakes. I even managed to find a Team Issue saddle... http://i45.tinypic.com/5ewhfp.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Strobbe, did you consider a Concor at all? If so, why the Regale?
I am now hoping for some celeste FFWD F6R wheels to complete the look (I can't get ones with FFWD hubs but not the Bianchi originals with DT240s ), though I love your color matching black variation!
Dumb question but are your 404's tubulars or?
Also searched for the team version of the Regale but decided to stay with black saddle and tape, more practical in the end. The Zipps are tubulars.
I've had to struggle to get the team Concor but luckily it is OEM for the complete bike... it's being sent to me from Italy after summer holidays as a favour. The Regale apparently is for the pro-team only.
