    Please help...Colnago CF9 vs Pinarello Treviso vs Orbea Diem S10

    Getting bored with all these Giant vs Trek vs Fuji vs Jamis etc threads. Time to have a change.

    I like the Colnago even though there's to much white on it but I made a special mention of Olympia because I own a Fusari roadbike. In fact I think an Olympia Icon would suit you best. Get it

    Yes I like the Olympia very much, but I'm not sure. I don't like the white saddles on the others because I find they make my arse look big. Do you think I could fit a 35mm tyre on the Plympia? I'll be riding 60% rail trails, 30% road and 10% paddock.

    I cant read the Olympia site as it's all in italian so it looks like the Orbea is the best bike but you already have one so I recommend this. I can see you and misses riding up Mount Fuji now.

    My mate is currently repairing a Teschner tandem at the moment.
    My problem is I like an aggressive set up which is also comfortable. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Also I see the Colnago has full Ultegra. How does this compare to Alivio or Acera?

    That Orbea looks pretty cool, but how hard would it be to do a drop bar conversion on it?

    Well I would've said the Orbea because I LIKE Orbea, but full Uletgra? Almost a no-brainer (if it wasn't for those white tires and all that other white stuff...)

    I think a point may have been missed...

    I`ll do a drop bar conversion in the future, so once I`ve chosen the rig, I`ll need you guys to help me with some pointers. The white tyres are a concern, but I hope to swap them out with some cool schwalbe kojaks. You know, the ones with the reflective sidewalls. I need a tyre that'll increase my speed. Anyother suggestions?
    Any suggestions on grips or barends? I`ve heard there are some good ones called `Ergo-something or other`

    I also have some Nashbar points, so I guess I'll pick up a water bottle and rear light. What else do I need?
