after a little windfall i decided i wanted a new frame in a slightly smaller size with racier geometry as im more flexible now and comfortable in the drops.

it was delivered on friday and i have been busy stripping down my pro carbon and building up my new bike Cool i got the small frame in the end and im glad i did as i can already feel it fits me well. i still need to make a few bike fit adjustments and give it all a final inspection before i take it for its maiden voyage this weekend but i cant wait Very Happy

i will post better photos when i get a chance it was 11.30pm when i finished fettling last night Razz

Went for a shakedown ride today and got some better pictures, bike feels amazing, fits better than my pro carbon did im really pleased I decided to get the smaller frame and use a longer stem.

Very nice colour scheme.

I especially like the idea of spare tubes etc. in the Elite Biasi tub rather than the almost-universal small and 0% waterproof saddle bag.

I do this myself and FWIW, I find the Elite Custom Stealth cage holds the Biasi best of all but the actual Elite bottles are held slightly better and vibration-free in the Elite Sior Mio Stealth non-carbon cage.

... just a small point. Very Happy
