    :DI test rode a Look 585, Campy Centaur equipped,team demo bike couple weeks ago. When I finally got all the info about it,turns out it was an 08,not an 09 so I couldn't make up my mind what to do. Soooo, I went to the Toronto bike show today and scoured all the dealers for a full carbon road bike,as well as a good deal and I think I did great with my new Gioda Jade.
    Full carbon frame and fork, Campy Centaur d'raillers,Centaur skelton brakes,Campy Scirocco wheels,Bontrager RaceXlite rubber,Ritchey stem and seat post and one kick-ass(I think) paint job. As soon as I can figure out how to get a decent picture I'll post it.Oh ya, Campy Centaur cranks,Ultra carbon.Seams to have all good stuff for 2200cdn.Don't go bursting my bubble, I think it's great!

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I have 2 questions for you:

    1. Why did you post, if you're neither asking for advice nor giving your own impression/review of this bike? There's lots of useless posts like this - poster bought a piece of equipment, now wants to know/be reassured/have hand held that they made a good choice - AFTER the fact:confused:
    2. Is the model year of a bike the most important consideration for you?

    You really need to post a picture! Sounds like agreat bike and at a price you would not get from the shops floor. Now go out and enjoy it!

    The GIODA sounds like a great find + a very good choice ...
    It falls within your original price/cost parameters ...

    AND, it has a current Campagnolo component group.

    The paint job is the racing colours of the bike shop I bought it from, looks kick-a-- in person, Campy components.
