I was so close to buying that from them a couple of times, but I wanted the red switched to blue and so couldn't afford it.

Gorgeous x 2, just superb. I really love those pre-Onda Pinarellos.

And, no, carbon forks, cork tape, alu posts, ti bolts, Alcantara saddle covers, etc...don't count as "mixed materials".
