I have just visited ExpoBici in Padova, IT. The Wilier stand was packed the whole time and everyone was glued to the Cento 1 SR bikes. I went there because I've been debating buying one and the visit made up my mind. I couldn't decide between the red and black. I chose black in the end. It is not actually black, but more a bare carbon. Looks great in the flesh. Red is also great, but its so bling I would not be allowed to have a bad day on it!

Anyway I took some photographs ... so I thought I would share with the forum.

agreed, it looks a bit like my Zero 7 in that colour scheme, but oh lordy, what has happened in Wilier's graphics department? they used to have the coolest and most classy in the industry, now they seem to be going all hip-hop

The black is pretty classy and understated, but I'd have the red 'cos life's too short for boring paint.

The graphics and colour look great in their mountain bikes.

Not so much on the road frames unfortunately.

They could probably do with a new logo for these designs, the angles and straight lines clash a bit with the swooping curves of the Wilier font.

Black makes it look twice as classy and thats from someone who has a red bike!

And this is supposed to be the outcome of a really famous (in the industry) graphic designe's work.
