Bought myself another bicycle !!! (update)

Woooooooooooo hoooooooooooooooooooo. I am so excited. You know what it's like I'm sure. Just can't help looking at it, touching it, fondling and even riding it.

Colnago C40. Star Carbon forks. Dura Ace, Mavic Ksyrium SSC. Weighs 17.5 lbs but I can get it down a bit. (shame I'm carrying 20lb of fat round my waist

Re: Bought myself a new bicycle !!!

Bought another one. Came with Campag Record equipment which I've nicked to put on the Colnago. Just doesn't seem right to have Dura Ace on an Italian bike.

Merckx is Titane model, Litespeed titanium tubeset, built in the Merckx shop in Belgium. Steel forks. Lovely.

Toss that steel fork and you have a winner. Nice machines. Pricey too.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

I think then, you should just donate that bike to a small hillclimber like myself.

Nice bike, I'm jealous...
