    Good call. I was wondering about that Colnago and several other pics as well. Nice bikes all but the saddle positions seems all wrong. Yes, everyone's built differently but I don't think saddles were designed or meant to be tilted in that crazy angle. Professional bike fitting anyone?

    If someone asked me for a one word description, I think I would say 'Lively'... It's plenty stiff, but still has that steel feel to it, not muted like a carbon bike, or jarring like the scandium Merckx I had... It flat out carves corners, I have an absolute blast descending on it, the faster you go... the better it feels, but you have to pay attention to it... I wouldn't say it's nervous, but I wouldn't describe it as 'stable' like the C-50 I had. Given the 73 deg head tube angle and 45mm fork offset, the trail number is a bit less than most so I guess that makes sense, but the bike has excellent balance, you don't notice one end more than the other if that makes sense...

    Now for the caveats... I'm 6'1" and 190 ish, and the bike is Dario's stock 56cm. The wheels I ride are old school 36h tubulars. I have no idea what the bike would ride like on modern low spoke count uber stiff aero wheels

    My brand new Specialized Dolce. I upgraded from the stock Shimano 2200 components to a mix of Shimano Tiagra, Sora, and 105's.

    I usually have Shimano 105 SPD-SL pedals but snapped one of my old shoes, so for now i've reverted back to the toe clips untill I can afford new shoes!!

    Here is mine a Scott Speedster S40 that has had all Ultegra execpt shifters fitted Kore Gradient wheels, SRAM Rival brakes, FSA Quad butted handlebars, Look Keo Carbon pedals, Gaerne Carbon shoes, Dura Ace cabling, Carbon saddle with Ti rails. Soon to be fitted a 3T Doric Team seatpost and 3T Team stem, SRAM 991 Hollowpin chain and Token Carbon and Ceramic jockey wheels. (Pick is a month old so some parts differnt now). I bought this to commute to work originally but now I use it mostly for fun and excercise.
