It seems like a really cool bike. In case anyone is contemplating one, the price is going up 500 Euros next year, so use that as an excuse to order now.

It is telling that it is all about colors and some custom metal plate on the top tube but not a word about what tube set(s) was/were used and why.

Not interested

How many potential customers actually understand differences between frame tube specifications, vs how many understand what different paint jobs look like?

Also nothing about the lugs. But we're told a lot about the component choices. I don't care that the owner loves electronic shifting.

A Campagnolo group would have been nicer...

Like the colors. Agree that we need the tubing info.

Wonder if the frame was chromed under it or is just silver with candy colors, saying this because you can't chrome carbon... either way is just fantastic...

I'm baffled why Anthony decided to save a few bucks and not get the Power Meter crank.

He really should have consulted with you first.

Anthony blew it...

Not sure what the fuss is about. The video was likely made to generate interest in the Portofino, and to show that personalization is possible. Tubeset is Columbus HSS. Pretty sure anyone who is seriously contemplating one would visit the website and find that out.

If you've got the budget for a Columbus HSS custom Battaglin with cromovelato paint and Red AXS and WTO Campy wheels, the difference on the power meter is a rounding error to the cost of the bike at that point.

Just strange is all.
