Wilier Cento Uno SR

Ok ok, I've not got it yet(it's being delivered on Saturday) but I've been waiting 7 weeks and the anticipation is killing me.

I just need the weather to clear up a bit so it's not another 7 weeks before I can get out on it.

I will upload some better pictures over the weekend once I've got the seat post cut.

I like the wheels, are you going to keep them? Let us know what you think when you get them.

Thanks people.

I did plan on upgrading a few bits and bobs. Wheels, tyres and stem but I'm going to put a few miles on it first to see how I get on with them. I've had a hard enough time justifying it to myself so close to Xmas without going all in.

I've not seen the bike in the flesh yet, the picture came from the guy in my LBS who is delivering it on Saturday but he tells me it's lovely(suppose he would). I was tempted by the fluro green for a while but he reckons I've made the right choice.

I'll give some feed back as soon as I can. Luckily my new K Edge garmin mount arrived a few hours ago from Utah so it's slowly coming together.

I agree on the build. This is the factory build spec and I've read enough on this forum to know the money should be on the frame and the rest should be upgraded as it wears out or money allows. That's my plan.

I took it a quick burl yesterday and it really is pin sharp. It turns brilliantly and stops better. Far better than my old 105 calipers would allow. The campagnolo will take a bit of getting used to but where I would describe my shimano 105 as analogue in would say the campagnolo is digital. It seems to fire into gear whereas I could feel the shimano into gear. I hope that makes sense.

The paint finish on the frame is also top class. I've spent ten times as much on cars with worse paint finish.

Out with the old, in with the new.

Two classics there - that CAAD 9 is still a great frame.
