I seriously considered buying this bike. Even thought about it in my dreams. No kidding. Let me know how she rides. I might buy it from you, if you ever sell it.
BTW, what is the saddle height as shown form the pics?
Enjoy!

100cm from the ground to top of the saddle and 74cm from the middle of the bb. She rides pretty nice, but only got to try it out for a couple of minutes. Have to get some more time in the saddle to really evaluate. I'll let you know if it doesn't end up working out

Already changed the saddle and am going to throw some fulcrum quattro carbon clinchers on it within the next few weeks. I have a nos carbon guru photon I picked up two days before getting this one. I was going to do a parts bin build with it, but might just throw a new 105 group on that one.

I was planning a disc praemio when the company met its demise. Disappointed.

It's a great frameset for sure. It's snappier and quicker handling than my old serotta ti bike. Climbs better out of the saddle and really is a dream to ride. Probably a bit stiff for lighter riders, but I'm 215lbs with my winter weight and really enjoy the extra stiffness that the bike offers.
