New Bike

Discussion in 'CycleChat Cafe' started by arranandy, 15 Mar 2008.

  1. I've just bought a new bike:biggrin::biggrin: Its a Wilier Izoard Pro. Getting delivered to me either Wednesday/Thursday next week as the bike shop (Wheelbase near Kendal) didn't have my size in stock so they've ordered it from the main supplier. I can't wait, I'm like a dog with 2 tails!!!:blush::biggrin:

    The Izoard was one of my shortlisted bikes:

    I was going to go for the model upgrade with the DT Swiss Mon Chasseral wheels.
    Lovely looking bike indeed.:blush:

    Picked up a Cervelo P2C frameset for Wafflycat Minor yesterday. It'll look rather delicious when it's built up.
     
  7. Sorry Keith, Campagnolo Centaur groupset and Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels:biggrin: Nothing against Shimano as my hybrid and MTB have Shimano drivetrain but IMO a quality Italian frame should have a quality Italian groupset
     
  8. I'll post some piccies when the Wilier gets delivered

    Excellent. Good to see you've been brought up correctly! Remember, even Uncle Albert says 'ShimaNO!' :blush:

    Oi..... Italian bikes just have to have Campag though - it's just a good job Campag have caught up with Shimano in terms of performance - Shimano wiped the floor with Campag in the 90's - Campag was just bling...didn't work very well then...

    It's got to be Campag. Who the hell wants that Chinese tat on their bike?

    Shame about the Campag.....gimem Shimano anyday.
    Sadly....whilst the Izoard Pro was acracking bike it feel from my shortlist due to the Campag...:ohmy:
    SRAM or Shimano only....but they wouldn't fit it to the bike.
    I have Fulcrum racing 1's and a Racing Torq RS chainset...and while they are Campag make.....they are an excellent wheel set and chainset that compliment the Dura Ace well.:blush:

    Staveley is a fair trek from Motherwell no?
     
  15. Just over 2 hours drive. SWMBO came to and we made a 'day out' of the trip which included going for lunch in Kendal the stopping to browse the shops at the Gretna Gateway on the way back up the road
