Nice! (Drool...). May be kind of trivial, but I like the blackened, but outlined stencil on the fork. Haven't seen that before, but looks very cool - esp. on that bike.

Excellent Matt.
Stoked for you. That Zank is a major score and I love the Campa and Bora's. I'm hoping to see that beauty in person in June!

this is excellent! I am jealous of your yearly bike game so far and I have always wanted a zanc.

also, if you want excellent brakes but also likes you need some EE brakes. As good if not better than campy at half the weight.


edit - also, people complain about the new campy crankset. This is the frame where this crankset looks amazing, to me, better than the old one.

Gorgeous!! Straight to the Zanc thread, to the black bikes thread, to the Max bikes thread, to the gumwall thread, to the white tape thread...

Funny you put it that way, I dreamed of an "angry" type of ride last night. then i woke up and heard the rain pouring down and decided the dream was better.

I have to shake it down some first, but by the weekend i should have a good angry ride in.

seeing your bike helped me make the white tape choice.

Nice work! Not sure the blue saddle fits in, but I still want to know what it is?

i have mixed feelings on it too. It sort of goes with the Belgium theme, but its not quite right. its a fabric scoop shallow. i have an all black one i can put on too, i just wanted to see how the color played out.

Had a fun 30 mile shakedown ride today. tested it on some pitchy hills and long straights. It wants to be fast and will force me to get faster. Its incredible the difference those mini max tubes make for stiffness in the bike.

i feel like my Lavecaise flexes with me , where this thing has very little give. its not harsh by any means, but it asks me in a not so polite way to please apply the accelerator a little more heavily

It took a little getting used to but after about 30 minutes i was feeling this thing. its totally different than my other bikes, and exactly what i wanted.
