Cioccolone and Cioccolina - with photos

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I always thought the ventos had the same spoke pattern as the zondas for the front wheel, but apparently not.

Anyways, the bikes in the OP look great - nice job on the build.

thanks!

its actually pretty hard to get the new QS front der. adjusted. Those cranks have such a tight Q factor that the cage hits the crank before the chain shifts unless the positioning is just perfect.

That has to be the biggest weight sleeper bike ever made considering the frame is 1700 grams, the fork 500 grams, and that frame weight is probably spec'd for a 56cm. Combined with nothing exotic and to make 15.4 lbs is amazing.

still trying to decide if you're serious or not...

maybe but i think the black actually looks quite nice. the carbon fork looks really old skool - no paint on it at all. the only thing i'm thinking about on that one is silver nikkon cables and white ergo hoods.

yeah i know. crazy hey. it turned out a full 500g less than my initial estimates.

first change would be a full carbon easton ec90 sl. then a record seatpost.
eventually, if the frame isn't a perfect fit - i'd try the Ciocc EOM 16.5 which is a fair bit lighter.

but, hell its light enough. can't wait to see how it rides. my wife says hers is fantastic.
