Zanconato Proto-Ti.....yup...it's here folks!

I am really excited to share this awesome news....I have been building it up for the last couple days, and all I can say is WOW!!!!

Here are the specs and build out.

53cm ST C-C
54.7 TT C-C
72.5 Seat Angle
72 Head Tube Angel
Massive 1 inch chain stays
Uber massive and 0valized Down tube at 1 5/8
Awesome Ti jet tube for rear brake
Anodized Zanconato logos
Falz 2 fork painted by Horse

The build

Headset -- Chris King ti....yes, there are about 2lbs of antisieze in there to prevent galling.
Bars -- Deda Supperlegra RS 40cm, ultimate stealth
Wrap -- Lightweight
Stem -- THM Tibia
Post -- Fizik Cyrano 00, de logo'ed and cut short
Saddle -- Sell Italia Novus Kit (will be Berk, but it didn't make it in time)
Cages -- Lightweight
Brakes -- THM Fibula Last gen with Clarks compressionless alloy housing
Cranks -- THM M3 SRM...sooo cool, 170mm
BB -- THM
Wheels -- Lightweight special Weiss edition (thanks for Ryun selling them back to me)
Tires -- Veloflex Paris Roubaix
Pedals -- Time Expresso 12's (wish they were 15's, they would match better)
Drivetrain -- Campagnolo Super Record EPS

I have yet to ride it, it will happen this afternoon....I am waiting to cap the brake cables until I am happy with cable length and modulation on the THM's...

It is both visually and physically stunning, and I can't wait to ride it...

Mike, thank you for making this dream of ours come true!!!!

Amazing. All around. And the frame.... uber amazing.

All while I'm still drooling over your latest steel... barely more than 3 months ago!

And then of course, when I head over to Mike's web site:

As of today, I am not accepting new orders until my existing commissions and obligations are fulfilled. When I resume, I will let folks know via my email newsletter.

I certainly respect him for managing the demands on his time. But seeing these two things together is painful....

That stem looks slightly out of place with the standard HT.

Lionel,

I kind of agree with you...I am thinking about putting the THM stem and brakes on my HSS with the 44mm head tube!
