Zanconato Disc Road

Picked this up from a fellow member, Geekonbike, about two months ago. Updated cockpit pieces and wheels to Enve recently. Zanconato's aluminum bikes are out of this world...very comfortable (like a steel frame!), stable, and stiff. Getting cold in Chicago now, so not sure how much miles I can get on this beauty for the next couple of months.

Beautiful bike and build. Zanconato builds the best aluminum bikes I've ever ridden. The detail on my cx is out of this world!

Can't go wrong with red!

What's the frame size, and your saddle height?

That is a fantastic build. Very classy. I was in the windy city the other week. It certainly was cold. May you get many happy miles!

Seat tube: 52.6 cm C-T
Top tube: 53.5 cm effective C-C
Top tube slope: 5 degrees

saddle height from BB is about 30 inches. Such an amazing ride, I have the cheesiest smile after I go over rough roads and feels like a magic carpet (granted wheels tires have some contribution to the ride)
