I have lurked here far too long and finally have a bike which I hope is worthy of sharing, perhaps not really a weenie compared to some of the crazy machines I have seen here, but hopefully at least different/interesting enough, so here goes

Frame/Fork Bottechia SP9 Supernova Team , size 48
Front mech Campagnolo Record 11
Rear mech Campagnolo Record 11
Brakes Zero Gravity OG-05 Ti
Shifter Campagnolo Record 11
Crank Campagnolo Record 11 Compact (34/50)
Cassette Campagnolo Record 11 (11/23)
Chain Campagnolo Record
Brake / Shift cables Campagnolo Ergopower Ultrashift
Stem 3T Arx Team Oversize Stem (Black Series) 100mm
Handlebar 3T Ergonova Team Carbon Handlebar (Black Series) 42cm
Bartape Bike Ribbon Spunga Cork
Saddle Selle San Marco Regal-E
Pedals Look Keo Carbon
Wheels Campagnolo Neutron Ultra / Farsports 50mm carbon clinchers
Tires Continental Gatorskins
Bottlecages Tacx Tao Light

total weight now 7.24Kg / 16lb



sorry they're not the greatest pics but it was dark and raining so I will add better ones in the future...

future plans, lose more weight off myself then slam the stem / bars when its comfortable, then perhaps 50mm matte carbon rims to match the frame(most likely tubulars), perhaps that will tip it under 15lb, if not then maybe some bolt tuning too :lol:

12/03/13 Update

new pics, now with Farsports 50mm carbon clinchers

Wow - nice to see some different stuff once in a while. I have not seen a Bottecchia in a *long* time, I was expecting to see steel! :-)

Welcome to the club, it's a slippery slope!

hehe steel, that's what got me started on Bottecchia many years ago, an old(new at the time) steel 989. I passed that one on to my father so its still in the family..

thanks for the welcome :)

Same as mellowJohnny. Expected some Columbus tubing as Bottecchia was one of my steel bikes.
Good to see the brand here and :welcome: to the forum.
Enjoy your ride.

Lovely, lovely frame and a real made in Italy if I 'm right.
Needs some higher profile wheels IMO.

I do not reserve the team 'beautiful' for many bikes. Eat your heart out anyone riding Far East crap.

Fun with different brands and not just the same in every thread. Cool bike, and looked really good from the front. Was curious about that after seeing the first pictures.

:thumbup: Very cool looking, very Italian. Where did you buy the frame? Do you think a 25mm tire would fit in the rear?

I like how the derailleur cables run through the head tube. Nice choice of components! Look pretty exclusive and yes it it quite lightweight considering an aero frame and alu wheels.
