You mentioned you bought the frame from Maestro (Based in Bognor Regis?), can I ask how long it took for you to receive the frame from your initial order. Did you choose the colour of the frame from what had the shortest delivery time, I realise this might be different now due to a change in the colour schemes for the 2013 colnagos.
How did you determine what size frame you needed, or did you have an idea of what size you needed already when you ordered the frame?. I'm considering doing something similar myself.
Thank you. I drove down to Mike at Maestro to be measured and to look at some of the frames he had that were awaiting collection. I was originally going to get a green & matt black Europcar frame or the Nero matt black, both were there and looked great but I thought that a matt finish may be easily marked and you wouldn't be able to polish blemishes out.
The white and red colour scheme was not even on my radar before I saw it at Maestro but seeing in the flesh with the sunlight glinting off the metallic red paint just did it for me.

i know someone who had just got his - 11 months after the order was placed!!
My frame only took two months to arrive, and according to Mike, other orders placed at the same time were in before mine. My experience with Maestro has been excellent so he gets my recommendation.

I know what you mean by not racing it, I too have an "event bike" which is my nicest one with the lightest wheels. I race a 2006 frame with heavier but stiffer wheels (CL24s) b/c if I crash it, I won't cry...(so hard anyway)
Thanks. This is my 'growing old together bike' to be used for sunny days and special events like the Raid Pyrénéen which I want to do next year. I intend to keep it a long time.
