My Cielo Sportif Racer, DA7900 grouppo but with the newer DA9000 wheels. This sees alot of commuting k's so I've switched to Conti 4 Seasons for more durability. Previously ran the GP4000's and it was a very smooth ride.

I love riding this.

I haven't seen alot of Cielo's going round, anyone else got one here on WW?

She isn't my lightest bike weighing in at 7.8kg.

Amazing frame and build.
Did you just use a spacer to run the 9000 wheels with 7900?

Yeap, I did use the spacer. The spacer is really nicely engraved too. I should have taken a photo. So two spacers in total, one from the new 9000 wheelset (cause I'm using a 10spd cassette) and the spacer that comes standard with the DA 10spd cassette.

Eventually I'll move to 9000 but for now, I'll enjoy the current set up :)

Mine has just been repainted and upgraded (carbon cranks, new lighter steel forks, carbon seatpost and record 10 speed chain). I need to retape the bars at some point and move the shifters. I have also fallen in love with the SLR monolink saddle which will mean a new expensive seatpost. There is also lot of other lighter that I would like to buy as well but I will have wait a bit.

Weight well its 22.11 lbs with pedal, cages, mudguards - ready to ride or 25 lbs with a fullwater bottle and a tool bottle stuffed with three tubes, a multitool and tyre levers.
It's my winter bike.

Malik - great looking frame. Especially like the fork. It gives the frame a classic flow to it.

Lovely frame that Rytcharski! Nice touch on the rear dropouts. Isn't Columbus Spirit a bit too light for serious CX use though?
