Beautiful red. And looks to be about my size!

Curious. Are the forks made in house too?

Thanks for looking! They are not. He primarily uses Columbus, but will use Enve, 3T, and others if needed.

The paint on that red steel Fedaia is great - it reminds me of what attracted me to road bikes when I first got into the sport. Looks like a beautiful bike...

What do you think about a Shimano groupset like Ultegra or Dura Ace on a classic frame like il Re or Fedaia?

Personally, I prefer Italian on an Italian frame, as well as the aesthetics of Campy, but that's just my opinion. I'm a Campy guy anyway, however, I have new Dura-Ace on my Cryptic and it has exceeded my expectations. At the end of the day, they both make a great product.

I think Shimano is unbeatable on low and medium range,105 and Ultegra work perfectly.
I've seen some Dura Ace 9000 on titanium frame,they are fine aestetically.
I'm using a Campy Record 2007 on the second bike,it works perfectly.I think Campagnolo groupset lost quality from 2015,so I don't know if the higher price is justified

God bless the Italians and their ability to do chromovelato that U.S. painters cannot.
