Gaulzetti Ultraline

Done! Pics on page 4.


Got some frame pics from Craig, should be built on Monday. This is the cross bike in the new Gaulzetti lineup. In addition to the smooth tube joints, note the:

- threaded bb
- Syntace X12-style 12x142 thru-axle
- polished raw aluminum background for the logo

Due to a slight delay with manufacturing the Gaulzetti thru-axle fork, this will be built up to start with a TRP fork, but I'll be getting the matching Gaulzetti fork in a month or so.

Color is Pantone Limpet Shell, which I got from their Spring 2016 color guide. Apparently we'll be seeing this color paired with Iced Coffee, Rose Quartz, and Peach Echo in the coming months, but I intend to pair it with an Ultegra hydro/mechanical group and a couple of all black wheelsets

I've been anxious to see photos of the 'new' Gaulzetti frames. Can't wait to see this one built up and ridden.

absolutely mind boggling.

interesting, like the smooth lines, that's a lot of time on the dynabrade, maybe some filler. I once stripped a smooth welded de rosa merak that had a little bit of filler in it. No shame in that I think, better than subjecting the frame to another round of heat, although i guess that doesn't matter if the frame is going to be heat treated afterwards. The dropouts are nice and clean looking which is great, some of those set ups can look a little erector set.

Is this thing getting built up?! I'm getting antsy here! (So, which fork is this spec'd for that there is a wait?)

Looks great in that color with the exposed aluminum panel.
