Spring has arrived - my new ride!(8 posts)

Spring has arrived - my new ride!config

Well, my local builder finally came through after 6 weeks of me waiting. It has carbon seat stays and I got it equipped with Centaur components (triple) since the cost of the Chorus was quite a bit more. Took it on a 35 mile test ride and I can't believe how smooth it handles compared to my mtb (Klein Pulse), this is my first road bike and it seems to float on the road!
I'll have the builder replace my stem with a 1cm one shorter since I felt I was stretching a bit too much (after 20 miles) on my test ride and my seat is already moved forward enough. I was planning on getting a Pinarello Marvel but decided to go to this local Italian builder instead and got something equivalent if not better for over $1k less.
So what do you think?
Let's try this picconfig

Hope you enjoy it. With that triple you should be able to take on some serious climbs. Have fun!
