    Well balanced bike but it would have been nice to see campag chorus or record on such a frame.I believe the Operas are steel and carbon.How do they ride.Sounds exquisite.And what are those conti 3000 like? Pinarello frames pre 2003 used to be very beautiful but from 2003 onward they gpt boring.

    I'll weigh it later today.

    I thought about, and really want a Prince, but I couldn't justify it as I was so out of shape when I bought the bike. If things go well this year, I'll get a Prince, or Prince SL next season.

    Yes, the Opera is steel with carbon fork and seatstays. From my perspective, the ride is terrific. Someone reviewing the Opera at RoadBikeReview described it as floating a millimeter above the road, yet with complete control and responsiveness. I think that's accurate. However, I haven't ridden LeMond, Pegoretti, Waterford, or any of the other steel bikes around. (Before the Pinarello, I was riding a mid-80s Panasonic touring bike.)

    For my style of riding (recreational) the GP 3000s work quite well.

    Mine is the 2001 frame done in silver with black trim -- I think it looks distinctive but not too busy.

    Yeah, I agree that a nice Italian steel bike should have Record carbon. However, I bought the bike used for $1600 pretty much as equipped. Apart from a few mars on the lettering on the frame, it was in pristine condition. The previous owner claimed 2000 miles, and I think he was telling the truth. Replacing the DA with Record would be great, but it would cost as much as I paid for the bike -- maybe more! I had to do some fancy talking with the Czarina of money at my house just to go the $1600, so the DA will stay as long as it continues to perform flawlessly.

    Wow that description of the Pinarello Opera sounds mouthwatering. What I do suggest regrading the DA group is you sell it all on ebay and make good money and then instead of record you go for Chorus which is a lot cheaper or even Daytona (silver not the grey) which I suspect is 2000 chorus and opt for cabon levers.In that way you could sell your dura ace and possibly buy Daytona straigh out.If Daytona 2004 is Chorus 2000 then I totally reccommned it. I have Chorus 2000 with record carbon levers on my Coppi KP1 and it is great looking, light and flawless. Just investigate Daytona 2004 a bit more and find out if it really is Chorus 2000. How much do Pinarello Opera Frames go for.I would not mind a new Opera which is 1-3 rs old which some shop might have or even the De Rosa Merak from 2000 which was mega light and gold/black. Do you rememebr. Think Pinarellos since 2002/3 look so bland.Look at the Prince paintjobs.Blandddddddddd!!!!!!

    1984 Trek 520 – probably around 22 to 23 lbs.

    The only mods are Shimano 600 friction shifters and a Deore front derailleur. This was my father’s bike and he did the mods first thing because the stock Cyclone front derailleur kinda sucked and the 600 shifters felt allot better than the stock Suntour ones.

    Raleigh USA Prestige Grand Sport - Light bike. Probably around 18 to 20 lbs.

    I was told this was a Raleigh hand built frame. This bike my father picked up used and gave it to me for my birthday in 87. I had a Shimano 600 SIS group and was looking for a frame. My father found this bike and it had a broken Suntour Superb rear derailleur and a bent right crank arm from a crash. After installing the 600 stuff and some new handlebar tape the bike looked like new.

    a little background:

    I ordered a 2003 medium Ghisallo from La Bicicletta on a huge blow out (more than half off). They sold the medium to somebody else so they got me a 2004 medium frame instead. Those guys, especially Heath, are awesome!


    It took me 8 months but here's how it looks now:

    04 Ghisallo Medium frame - 896 grams
    04 Record Brake Shifters
    04 Chorus Rear Derailleur
    04 Chorus Front Derailleur
    Campy 10 speed chain
    Chorus steel cassette 11-23
    Yellow Gommitalia tires - 200 grams each
    Salsa Ti (front/rear) skewers
    FSA RD400 - 1450 grams ( super cheap)
    Easton Aero fork
    Easton carbon Handlebar 44 cm width
    Ritchey WCS stem 100 mm - 125 grams
    Zero Gravity Brakes 80 grams each with pads
    Selle Itallia SLR 145 grams
    Campy Record Carbon Seatpost 31.9x350 mmheavy as hell

    I weighed it with old velcoe brakes and it weighed 15.5 pounds but I figure with the Zero Gravity brakes it shoudl be right around 15 lbs


    Next year I'll probably switch the seat post and then add Nokon cables.

    I want to get it below the UCI limit ~14.8 lbs

    I know its crazy but its way cheaper than turning 50 and getting a Porsche... :) ofcourse using my bike I might just get to 70 without a walker.

    Hi Im fascinated by the fact you bought the fsa rd 400. I am based in the UK and I am not sure if fsa wheels are availabloe here abd if they were i would consider them. what si the pricing on the fsa 200,400,600 and 800 i nthe us WHICH i AM SURE YOU ARE FROM.Arethere any US shops which export wheels to the UK via mail order that uyou know of. I am faced with the decision if not to buy campag zondas at £230 which are claimed 1660g and for me offer infinitely better value for money than mavic ksyrium sl silvewr at £399.
