Thanks ! We can't see it well on the picture but the color is not black, the bike is glossy carbon fiber. Something like this: http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=345903

I knew this one was coming. And I did think about EPS and Bora, but I really couldn't get my head around components made in Romania being any more of a fit than those made in Japan and America. Since it seems we're surely talking about geography rather than function or technology.

But, in all seriousness, the Di2 hoods feel better in my hand and that was really all that mattered to me. Is there really a debate that EPS functions better than Di2 or vise-versa?

Took the Ridley out yesterday for its last ride on the Bora Ones. Those are on the De Rosa now.

Eps, (some) carbon, cassettes, chains and chainrings are made in Italy:

EPS (electronic) system components are made in Vicenza, but I was not allowed to see them being made, and carbon production was off-limits for photography.

i think centaur, veloce and lower end wheels mainly come out of Romania. (If it really manners)

My opinion here...

Switch out the bar tape to black. I dont luke the aesthetics of thise bars. They are too ergo for my liking. The cages are a different blue than the blue on the frame so that is a no no in my eyes. If you're gonna match up colors they need to be exact, otherwise it looks horrible. So I would swap those out for black cages as well, though you could do white if you wanted.

Not

Thanks, bought the bike like that used. I'll probably keep the cages and double wrap black tape on top. Bars do look weird but feel nice

A note I would like to add: The saddle is too far forward. The bars are too ergo for me also. Check your computer pickup. S-Works are hard to get love in this forum. Just my thoughts, so get out and ride!
Cheers

The Colnago is hot. Clearly, it would be hotter with EPS (and without the valve caps).

Something like this:

We all wish we could have a set of Boras. I can't fault the Enve decision. For my next bike.

primov8's Boras are very hot. I did a lot of hand wringing.

I'm looking forward to adding another De Rosa, favorably the SuperKing 888 in the near future. EPS of course. :p

Although I'd strongly consider a C59 Italia in the blk/yellow colors as well when that time comes.

Thanks. I bought the Bora Ones from Ribble earlier in the year when they had a sale. I paid 844.97, shipped to NYC and I still regret not buying a 2nd pair as I haven't seen it ever go back to that price.

But can't go wrong with Enves either. Anyone looking for a top tier wheelset with custom options, Enves would be my first choice. The 65s I previously had for almost two years were great wheels, durable and trued only once after hitting an unavoidable pothole. I sold the 3T wheelset that I had on the De Rosa last month and the Enve 6.7s w/ Tune 170 hubs would be the perfect wheelset to replace that.
