I was skeptical of the 35 bars too, but man they've been a treat on my Gaulzetti. Thinking of swapping over some of my other bikes to them.

It makes the 26.0 bars on my Della Santa feel positively puny.

Couple little things to finalize it.

MCFK post thanks to Caballero. Had to take the giant stickers off of it though.
28mm Corsa controls from Justin got glued this weekend to my Bora 35s.
I think that pretty much completes the build...

rain has kept me from long rides on it so far, but maybe today or tomorrow it will let up some. the bike is really nice. like really really nice

Sticking with the Trentacinque bar/stem, Matt? Any comments/observations on the move to them? Love the stem match to the frame finish. With some colors it's too "in your face" for me; this one works.

And of course, I'm a sucker for Campagnolo 5-arm cranksets

I am for now sticking with the trentacinque bar, they are actually pretty comfy on the tops and the stem was done in a 35, so it forced my hand. i wanted a normal 31.8 stem color matched but this was perhaps a mistake meant to be. i really dont notice much difference other than the larger tops. i'm not strong enough to test the stiffness or whatever.

most of my bikes are blue. i wanted something with color, but still naturalish. i think this works, sometimes its bling, sometimes just green.

Wow those tires look amazing on that bike. Brings out the Rose Gold decals. How do they ride Matt as to normal Corsa tires?

Beautiful bike. Must be a jaw dropper in person.Trying to see how I can work Rose Gold decals in to my rides.

i dont have a real ride on these tires yet, like maybe only 16 miles. its been pouring rain here. maybe today. they do seem to calm down the bumps on my gravel drive some compared to the 25mm contis that are on the zipps.

the rose gold is wonderful. id do an entire bike in it! but its probably best as an accent. now i need stem spacers in rose gold, who makes em? festka? haha

That's a looker for sure. Every now and then I see a guy on a Festka circling the track I cut through on my way to drop off my kids in the morning.

If this bike were candy I’d stuff myself full and die happy from toxic shock!
