    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.)

    The Ti, the Cippo and the DeSalvo, all HOT!

    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.

    This one is awesome IMO, can find nothing to whine about. The frame itself is very tasteful (for an aero).

    My 87 Bianchi Campione d'Italia. A bit older than a lot of the bikes in this thread but I think she's pretty hot. Just got the new saddle to match the bar tape today. Some parts original (derailleurs, wheels, crank), replaced brakes with dual pivot Campy Centaur calipers and levers with aero style. Saddle is a Soma Kamisori. I think the stem was replaced by the previous owner, but not sure.

    What's the consensus, hot or not?

    welllll...

    I'm going to go not on this one. Mostly because of the cheap pedals (a bike of this vintage really needs some nice campy pedals and clips). Saddle looks a little forward with a too short stem. I loved that bike though and used to see it at the shop I worked at, it's a shame that all of the old steel frames just look a little ugly in such large sizes (compared to new bikes with fat tubing that look bad in small sizes and great in large ones). So much so that those wheels don't even look round. optical illusion perhaps?

    Still it has potential!

    All the other recent bikes I'd give a hot to.

    Fair enough. On the pedals, I didn't want clip pedals yet since I'm in the city and a relatively new rider. Being somewhat locked in when stopping relatively often seems dangerous for my inexperienced ass.

    Any recommendations on pedals?
