    First road bike.
    Bianchi Premio
    Big mix of components but it does have 105 shifters (they look cool in dark grey.) and Mavic wheels.
    I just got back from my first ride. I couldnt be happier. It fits (or seems at least to the first timer) perfect. Very comfortable. I got it a week ago but held off posting it until i had a chance to test it out.


    EDIT: Favorite part about it


    Made in Italy

    Looks nice. Although if it were me, I'd trim the excess seatpost.

    All i can say is that is honestly one of the most f___en sweet bikes i've yet seen. I know i've said it before, but its definetly true.

    hopefully i can post pics of my Prodigy frame on here soon(i don't have the camera right now)....and not too long after that i'll have pics of the fully built bike [fingers crossed]

    Kind of hard to see but I added the Black/Blue Arione saddle and it really helps to pick up the blue......not to mention it feels really nice on my nether regions.

    yeah i noticed...actually, hard as it is to believe, i think its the first thing i notice usually one of the first things i check out on a road bike is the saddle...not sure why though.

    Just finished building this:

    Mix of 105/ultegra/dura ace - whatever I could find on sale - spent the real money on the frame...

    Yep - note the commuter pedals.

    Also, got the first 'crap i set the toe cage too tight' scratches on the rear derailler... I was hoping this one would avoid the welcome to the family marks for a while, but oh well.

    Here is a picture of the Prodigy frame (very)temporarily perched on the wheels from the Soloist, just to give a taste of things to come...

    I absolutely can't wait to have it all built up.

    It will be veloce 10sp with an FSA gossamer crankset(off of the soloist...the soloist will be upgraded) and as-yet-to-be-decided wheels.

    hope you guys like (and even if you don't, oh well, I do )

    ^ Mavic Cosmos wheels

    ^^ Yeah, I wasn't ever really a fan of the all-celeste frames, but adding lots of black to it makes it look pretty good imo

    ^^^^ I'm definitely not a professional when it comes to building bikes - this being the first real road bike project, I just kinda set them to an angle that looked comfortable, then adjusted a bit after the first ride. Further adjustments might come later, after longer rides, but it's been really smooth and comfortable so far.

    I don't know how to post a picture on a forum. 1-800-AM-I-CLULESS? If you can tell me how easy it is I will post a photo of my 2004 blue and white Specialized Allez Comp full Ultegra. It's a steel bike which came with a double but I swapped it out for a compact.

    Sweet jeebus! Nice.
    I want a Scandium Bianchi. Second the odd bar angle though, plus the odd seat angle. Are you balanced on the bike?
