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

Thank you. Here is a better staged shot.

Hi, updated photo with SRM on Hollowgram crank arm:


Bike rode nicely -- rider, not so much (as evidenced by power data ).

In case you don't remember, it's a 2012 SuperSix EVO with Record-10 derailleurs and brakes and an assortment of other parts that I favor.

Very nice, hot even. Are those bars comfortable like that?

My first thought is to give this a hot, but the more I look at it I find things I dont like.
Definitely just the angle, the saddle is pretty leveled.

HOT... but I'd put the speed sensor on the fork facing forwards to avoid pulling it into the wheel.

Torelli 20th (Mondonico)

Love it, rode the snot out of it, never crashed it, now just look at it as it hangs in my kitchen.

11 of 100 made.

i met Antonio in SF during his last US fitting tour, he signed it with a paint pen, as well as a torelli jersey.

G'day all. !st post, 1st bike, 1st ride this morning. Built her up all from ebay. Everything you see here came in at just under $3000AU. Pretty happy with the looks, and it felt great first time out. Although, I don't know what to expect, as I haven't ridden a bike for 18 years. Hot or not? To me, she is somewhere in the middle. Went with the red, black, white theme and decided to keep the gumwalls that came with the rims. New ones would look better, and I may just purchase some in the coming weeks.

Alright then, flame away fellas and ladies! *Applies flame ******ant suit and creme from head to toe*

gumwalls are definitely back in style. Crap dude, you even staged it properly for the photo on your first post. Sure they may be some aesthetic flaws but overally, I give it a HOT.

I dont like the aesthetics of the stem. White bar tape would look much better in my opinion because it would match the saddle for 1, but also match the white transition headtube and fork. Black chainrings (praxis chaingrings) would be a nice match. Dont care for the gummy tires. (only basing my thoughts from picture, not black tires you might get in the future). Polished brakes dont distract but black brake calipers would "look" better (SEE WHAT I DID THERE!???....because...you have a LOOK bike!!! lol, ok sorry)

thats getting detailed though. overall, I like the bike. I dont know if I would go get all aroused if it passed me on the road, I'm on the fence with this one.

I'm closer to Bianchi10 on this one...a little too busy for my taste to be very hot (at least standing still; am sure it would look hot passing me on the road)...although I appreciate the effort to try to create/maintain a color theme, and extra points for red valve stems...and showing some gumwalls since I'm thinking hard about putting some on the stealth Parlee

Any suggestions to increase the hotness? Sorry about the light.
