Postby Kona21 » Sun May 15, 2011 13:11 pm

Hi guys

Not even been out on it yet as it keeps threatening to rain :(

Ill let you know how i get on

Spec's are
Full super record 11
Corima aero + wheels
MOst finishing kit.

I saw the frameset in a shop window in Bologna last year - absolutely gorgeous, and your set-up does it justice. I hope you can still ride it after losing the arm+leg you must have paid.

Nice! What size is it?
It’s the most beautiful sport in the world but it’s governed by ***ts who have turned it into a crock of ****.

The owner rode for motorpoint and kept the bike from last season. But due to a major knee injury he was forced to sell it. It was on eBay. I went to see it and bought it without ebay.

It's a 52cm.. I think. 53.5 top tube
Still not been out on it ! Just want to stare at it all day

Cheers guys !

First ride on it today, only an hour. I always wondered what people meant by 'a fast bike' and today i found out ! Its just so stiff and can without doubt notice it up hills.
I am sure it wont win me a race but every little helps :wink:

Nice - the slightly less wibbly wobbly forks look so much nicer than the Pinarello ones.

Yes, i noticed that. Pinarello managed to squeeze two curves in the fork and it looks a tad too much.
It rides as well as it looks. Everything just seems so much eaiser. That's as far as my bike reviewing skills go! :lol:

Yes, you need to work on that. Mention front end lift and how the bike eagerly pushes you to your limits whilst at the same time actively cushioning you from the harshness of the road blah blah blah!

And don't forget to rate the frame on the International scale of Flexiness (On a noodle-to-board ratio).

Is it laterally stiff yet vertically compliant?

Stunning bike.

If you are not already a member of VC Norwich then you should be, and please bring that bike along to the club ride :wink:

Just my size as well.
