Hope it stays dry enough for a few rides before it settles down for the winter in the spare room...

I have always much admired this bike - rave reviews but not mainstream enough to get the praise it deserves i think - luck man

What colour scheme are you getting? Celeste (vacansoleil) or BoB?

Funny how they translate oltre (hors in French) as 'beyond', which works well in French for 'beyond category' but not if, say, a lift is 'hors service' i.e. out of service. Beyond service? That implies really great service, not zero service.

As a stand alone Italian word a much better translation would just be plain old 'ultimate'. But since Litespeed do one, guess they had to be different.
When a cyclist has a disagreement with a car; it's not who's right, it's who's left.

My Mate has the Vacansoleil version and it is truly beautiful, lovely finish and the subtle shadows of dark blue really look cool 8) :mrgreen:

That is one of the most beautiful bikes I have ever seen. Love it.

Regarding the computer, you could always mount the sensor on the chainstay if it's wireless.

Lovely looking bike, Always liked the Bianchi's - What is it with Italian bikes and styling... Spec,trek,cervelo etc etc will NEVER have the panache of the Italian steeds. And it's got to have a campag groupset on it.
