    Finally I was able buy a Pinarello MONTELLO. :D

    It's the orgininal teambike of Guiseppe Guerini, Team Telekom 2003. :eek:

    It's 100% monocoque carbon fibre, an extremely aero and beautiful. :p

    Yes, it has a few little craches but who cares. It's a bike with history!

    Nice detail; Take a look at the rear stay! No brake caliper! The rear brake caliper is hidden beneath the bottom bracket (aerodynamics)! :eek:

    The frame+bottom bracket = 1.8kg :rolleyes:

    That's pretty hot. What are you building it up with?

    did you buy it direct from the T-Mobile service course, or e-bay??

    Great pick up.

    That is a beautiful frame. I want, no, NEED one.

    Oh, and I hate you for having it. ;)

    How did you get your hands on it? :confused:

    'crashes'='scratches' ;


    I bought it in Belgium. They have contact with the Telekom team.

    I'm going to build it up with record05, bora04, ghibli rear and stuff.



    I paid EUR2500 for the complete Guerini bike without wheels (record03, deda carbon tt bars and stuff).

    New it's $8000 for the frame, $15000 for a complete bike, or something. If you can find one.

    I have to agree with you. I bought a 1994 Bianchi Time Trial frame this year but it had a 650 front wheel and I had to change it because of the UCI rules. Now the geometry is not good and the bike is uncomfortable.

    I've converted my training bike which is a Giant TCR (ONCE) frame, for S.African time trial champ's. I've put ITM CX2 bars on and left the 105 group set on the bike.

    I still think my bike is lighter than the Pinerello but that bike is just too awesome.

    Wonder if you can find a Giant composite t.t. frame.

    What you riding and with what equipment?

    I just looked at the Giant website (I love composite frames) and they have a frame they dont mention the weight (but I remember 3.something kilo - including the intergrated bars)

    Mine will be heavy becase of the old 105 group set but if I used maybe the new/newer Ultegra it should drop the weight quiet a bit. Maybe not to 6.8kg.

    What is the UCI rules about having a front derailleur. Thinking of maybe taking it off and perhaps going to the extent of using a track crank and b.b. as its a flat route.

    Making a 1.8kg frame (sorry it was 2kg including BB), with TTbars (650g) and Ghibli Disc (1kg w/o tubular) <6.8kg is very difficult :rolleyes:

    I don't know much TT bikes that are <6.8kg The TTbikes used in de TdF Alpe d'Huez TT (uphill TT) were mostly 7kg+. And that bikes didn't have a disc wheel, aero frame and stuff. Ullrichs bike was 7.1kg, Armstrongs 6.8kg but Lance didn't used TTbars

    Lightweight ObenMayer front wheel with Tune King hub, carbon spokes, record 05 w carbon cranks (drilled out rear+front der. cage, levers). Special light weight cables, drilled out Deda full cf bars, USE aero seatpost, San Marco Era Composite saddle, Tufo <160g tubulars, carbon brake calipers, carbon chainrings, Easton EC90 Aero fork, titanium hardware, Look Keo cf/ti pedals and stuff.

    That's an other $3000 so that's next years project :p
