    Physical limitations that come with old age? I guess some people prefer to be more upright / want taller head tubes.

    Just as an aside: I just built up my second Miele Latina Road Issue (the first one ended with a snapped DS DO :( ), and it's remarkable how well they ride for simple traditional-diameter Columbus SL...

    That bike might get close to $500 if it were in Toronto, but if you're in the states, where demand for Miele bike is pretty low, I'd offer $350 and see what happens. That model does not command $500.

    This should be an interesting frame. S3 is excellent stuff, if not a little scary, because of how light it is. IMHO, there are a few things that hold me back from carbon:

    Are you a welder?

    OP - also take a look at Marinoni: www.marinoni.qc.ca. You should be able to snag a Columbus Spirit-based Piuma with a fork for around $900. They're made in Quebec, Canada, so I...

    Very classy build, but I would remove the pump band, because it's guaranteed to ruin the paint.

    I would argue that Campagnolo has never even approached ubiquity in North America. Others have stated various reasons, and I essentially think it comes down to lack of OE distribution. Campy likely...

    $1650 or so for an S3 frame and Alpha Q for from Hugh @ True North Cycles. Wait was around four months, IIRC.

    This is really splitting hairs, IMO, and it reeks of buyer's remorse. If the frame hasn't changed from '08 to '10 and you paid a good price on an NOS frameset, then just ride the friggin' thing and...

    Just make sure you run an OG-1090 cassette on that if you don't want to replace the freehub body every season.

    For a thousand? I'd agree with customs. I don't know how keen I'd be on going carbon unless it was strictly for racing. If you want an all-rounder, I'd go with an aluminum rim - possibly DT or...
