I put this together on a bit of a budget. Swapped the frame + forks (& some mavic krysium ESwheels for everyday training etc) for a scott scale mtb. The wheels are carbonzone 50mm clinchers, sram force shifters & red chainset off here. stem from planet x clearance, other bits from various ads (2nd hand)
next to change is the rear mech from apex to red or force. got some ritchey wcs bars to put on and then a bling seatpost.
Rides ace, better than my ribble sportive bianco but that was a great ride too!
The carbon lay up is amazing as it isn't the weave but looks like crushed velvet. the squared off headtube is pretty cool too

What frame is that? It's not a cento uno? cento's have an integrated seat post :?

yep, you're right the cento uno has an isp. this is a cento (anniversary edition) the pre -uno version. its 2006/7 but by all accounts less than 700 miles on the clock and the frame is in mint condition.

Bar tape's a bit err slack :wink:

How do you find the Ultremo ZX's I had the white striped pair for a bit like you and they look filthy in minutes of rolling from the front door and they were the most durable either - easily cut up and a lot of punctures too.

cheers. yeah, the bar tape's not good. first time i'd done it. i've just got some more as i've a ritchey wcs bar to put on. hopefully i'll tape it a bit better next time. As for the ultremos; i was really impressed, this is the 2nd pair i've had but they dont seem to be holding up as well this time. i average about 100 miles a week (150 on a good week) and had the last pair for just under a year. this pair only 6 months . I've no complaints about how they ride though. only had 2 punctures too... darn'it i've probably just jinxed myself

couldn't the ISP have been cut and capped to take a seat post? always a nice "frame so no shock it rides better than a Ribble Sportive" - a shame its not campagnolo though

if i'd been starting from scratch i would have gone the campag route, but i had sram bits to use. Red & force not too shabby though!
Zero7, have you posted pics of your "wilier collection" up as i'd love to see 'em. Give me something to aim for?
I think i've gone all romantic for Italien-ness? i've even got a farnese vini kit! should be lampre i know, but i'm not man enough to wear the loud pink.

any chance of a pic of the zero7 as it escaped. How does it compare to your other Wiliers?
Do you rotate the bikes to ride or do you have a system or just what you fancy at the time?
Are you a Wilier nut or do you have some kind of deal/sponsorship with them?
