Why the robin's egg blue fork? It just seems off to me, as doe the chunky stem, but that has already been mentioned. Otherwise...

Wow Stephen you hit this out of the park! Talk about a grail bike build. Love when Ti mixes with Carbon and Campy EPS, man this must ride like a dream.

Enjoy the miles, for sure!

Thanks for the question, the anodization moves a lot depending on the light. The fork and logos are supposed to compliment each other. Also, for Zanconato fans, the fork is a take on the team blue that he has used for years. Meaning, it matches three of my other Zancs and my dresser full of Jerseys.

I changed the top cap on the stem to black last night, and I think it helps a lot from a visual perspective. But, I may still change it out.

Thanks,

Stephen

As others says
a Zanc
in titanium

The fork shape really complement the all thing
Like on Ryun ' Bixxis

It would be perfect with the berk saddle
And others : brakes , seat post , stem

I really love the big tubing where it matters

Oh no, will they cease production on the forks?

Ride report!!!

76 miles and 4K rt of climbing today on this bad boy. The first 2 miles yesterday ended in my brand New THM SRM loosing a pedal insert in the drive side crank. Apparently, somewhat common and rectified with later crank production.

Anyways, back to the campy SRM, and I was off to the races today.

The bike is just fabulous. I really got a taste of everything today, rain, wind, climbing, fast descents, great flats and rolling hills.

The frame is uber responsive. It literally “sings” underneath you only the way ti can. It is a rocket ship, but not harsh or uncomfortable. Since Mike has built me a few bikes, we know where the GEO needs to be. I just kind of set the saddle in the middle of the rails and go.

The THM brakes were fabulous and the stem was super stiff.

I only have two imperfect observations, neither of them related to the frameset.

1) the front end is so silly light that while climbing, it is literally hard to keep the front end planted.

2) lightweights simply do not stop in the rain. We got a pretty serious storm this afternoon and I was bombing down some hills at the same time. I couldn’t get these wheels to slow down for anything. Note to self, we will be using Boras on longer race days. It should address both issues!

Thank you Mike Zanconato. This is truly superlative in every sense of the word!!

Nice write-up. As far as the LW go. I found that running either Corima pads or Campy Red pads were better than the grey LW pads. Just a thought. Although in the rain I think all bets are off.

This looks super sweet. I agree on the stem myself and would have probably gone black fork but this looks awesome

A bit lighter. This frame is a about 3.5lbs. Not bad considering the monster chain stays and down tube.
