    The Torelli is hot even if the speed sensor is in the excited position.

    The Merckx is hot and just looks so right.

    The Dale... Oh look, another black bike.

    I don't really know, around 15lbs I think. They're really heavy wheels, the wheels without skewers or a cassette were almost 1800 grams.

    Have you considered removing the red stripe from the stem? I think it would look cleaner without it.

    Here is mine.

    Before.


    After.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I'd normally agree, but his frame looks like it has red highlights, like on the top-facing section of the DT.

    Thanks for the recommendation, didn't know you could do that on these! Not sure if I want to though, the paint scheme has some red on it, and so do the bars:

    Oh, you might want to use that acetone on the bike and bars as well then!

    Lord help if any color is showing anywhere ... remember, we are Ninjas!

    Btw, sweet ride, even if it is all black.

    Latest addition to the stable.... Cipollini RB800



    Primary Build Specs:

    • Campy Super Record 11 gruppo
    • Ritchey Carbon WCS cockpit (Evolution Bars)
    • Enve SES 3.4 Clinchers w/CK R45 Ceramic Hubs and Conti GP4000S tires
    • Specialized S-Works Toupe Saddle w/custom recovering by Busyman Bicycles
    • Matching Custom Bar Tape by Busyman Bicycles
    • Other: Speedplay Zero pedals, K-Edge gold/black chain catcher, MC cages

    Total Weight: 15 lbs 4 oz.

    Tried the new Ultralite Cirris Ti pedals (112g for the pair, including cleats) but never could get comfortable with the clip in/out….replaced with Speedplay Zeros.

    Can’t do much about the stack as Mario’s fleet are designed with very aggressive geometry, so this is about as low as I can go. Very smooth and compliant ride.

    I got rid of the red stripe on mine by using a cut thinner piece of electrical tape on top. Looks pretty much the same and I can remove it at any time.

    Fatties get any love in here?




    (Stem will drop a bit as I dial in fit and excess will be chopped. Front skewer is on the wrong side because it interferes with the brake. I am also considering blacking out the giant white logos on the tires and removing the decals from the Woundup fork.)

    Love the Campy gruppos and Wound Up forks that have been popping up.

    I like this a lot, especially for a Cannondale. Minor nitpicks are battery placement, and wondering why you mixed new rings with previous generation crank arms. Looks ready to roll hard.
