I have switched to the hyperons and waaaaaaay smoother than the LW. The roll soo nicely. Definitely my favorite db wheel so far

I fiddled with the air pressure on the LWs but its hard to compete with the feel of 28s on the wider campy wheels. I dont think id run bigger than 25 on these lightweights.

the c68/v3rs are definitely racier than the C series Ive had before with the v3 being firmer, Switching to 28s has helped. not sure you could run more than 30 on this. I have a v4rs on order and plan on riding a wider tire on that to see the feel

Not to precipitate another tired rim/disc debate (I have both) but I thought you were a “rim” guy through and through?
Im really indifferent. Discs are a pain to setup but look clean when the bike is done. Ive only really used Campy discs and they seem to work just fine.
Obviously I raced for years on rims and found them more than adequate but other than install and initial alignment it doesnt bother me much,

I've never owned or ridden a Willer and I've always wondered about these bikes. Are they their own kind of ride or similar to something else out there?
The zero is probably the smoothest steel like feel I have found. no real chatter. I dont know if they have some voodoo in their carbon mix (i think they add some liquid crystal polymeer) but certainly great feel for being so so light.
C68 is pretty darn good.

A little break from my bikes, here is my wife's new Studio C68. About six months from soup to nuts. Light blue.white.dark blue
Sr12 eps hyperon ultra.
She still loves her hampsten steel but is really enjoying the new ride.
here are the pics from Cicli Corsa which are better than anything I could take

That was the word direct from colnago but the supply of cc01 is really tied up with the high demand for c68/v4rs production so nothing expected for another year now

TY and amazing bike that your wife has. I'm caught between how cool bike is and the fact that she rides/rides with you. I'd love it if my wife or kids wanted to seriously ride.

I have a Filante and had a Zero and agree 100% on the Zero. I only sold the Zero because it was one size too small and I started having some neck issues after riding it frequently for a couple of months. The Filante is phenomenal for fast group rides and more compliant than most "aero" frames. The finish and quality of both are top-notch.

Figured Id add a couple more from the rim brake side of the shop:

Anna's Hampsten with Record 12 in purple:







And my ZanK repainted by Black magic; Jen Green custom headtube badhe. About 10yrs old at this point back to wearing the 80th Anniversary group it originally was built with.
one of my all time favorite riding bikes. Old skool smooth with the pego richie tubeset. I can only imagine how a Max version would ride
