|For the longest time I've had an urge to buy an additional bike to share time with my Cinelli Starlight (great bike). Last week I gave in to the Fondriest sale and bought a Status Carb (EOM 16.5 Steel) Brown delivered it yesterday, and I most say that if it rides as good as it looks I'll be in for a treat. The black matte paint is unlike anything I've seen or felt (almost feels rubbery).
Anyway, everything happened so fast that I haven't considered what to dress it with. My Cinelli has a DA group, Velomax Circuit wheels, Thomson post, and Cinelli stem and bar -none of which I've had problems with, but I don't mind diversifying. So here's the big question what would YOU dress this frame with? Funds are available but not unlimited, so be reasonable. Your help will be appreciated.

|I recently got a a Don Racer, same paint job. I dressed it up with a DA group, FSA Carbon Pro Cranks, Deda Newton bar/stem, Deda blackstick seatpost, SLR saddle, my old Look cx7 pedals, campy eurus wheels with gp3000s.
Campy record would have been even better looking, but I already have another shimano bike and several wheelsets.

|My recommendations are as follows:
Deda Mag 00 stem
Deda Magic ergo handle bar
Dura-Ace gruppo with 12-25 or 12-27 rear cog
FSA Pro Team Issue Cranks (look very nice with the black finish on the bike)
Selle-Italia Black Aspide Anatomic Gel saddle
Chinelli Black or Red Cork Handle Bar tape
Speedplay Titanium pedals (if you weigh more than 185 lbs go with the steel for a few dollars less and about 10 grams more in weight
Rims....hmmm. HED ALPS, or Velomax rims or maybe Spinergy wheels
I would go with the Continental GT FORCE & Attack tires

|Anyting you put on that Fondriest that is not Itailian or at least European will be rejected like a bad organ transplant.
Campy only - Record carbon
Stella Azzura bar and stem - stop playing around.
Alien carbon post
This is what you will use. Don't whine about price either monkeyboy.

|That's a singlespeed waiting to happen if I ever saw one. Anything else just says, "I care WAY too much..."|

|I think my butt on the saddle would dress it up nicely, send it over and I'll let you know.|| |
