I had a 2006 Wilier Le Roi with Campy Chorus 10 speed and Hed Ardennes wheels until earlier this year when a SUV pulled out in front of me and totalled the frame. I have now got a new Schwinn Peloton LTD frame and recycled the parts to make a trainer bike. Meanwhile I acquired a 2005 Scott CR1. This has Campy Record 10 speed, Zipp cranks and bars and American Classic Mag 300 wheels which make it somewhat light. Great climbing bike. Also a Jamis T2 TT/tri bike with the standard DA/Zipp 808 build.

I normally don't care for a sloping geometry, but this frame? Just wonderful.

Also, how do you like those Q-rotors? I'm a bit surprised to see them on the same bike as Open Pros.

Thanks! :)

Jury's still out on the Q-rotors. Having just got them I need to give it enough time to make a proper call. Suffice it to say that I went too hard the first couple of rides, got some cramps in my calves and some soreness...so now I'm following the instructions :D

I took the right advice with the Open pros I think. They roll really good and very easy to maintain. Can not say the same about the Ksyrium SLs I was riding before...

Yeah, you did!;) Really nice bike flyor64! How tall are you by the way? That bike is HUGE!!!

Yup ;) thanks btw. Guy at the shop pretty much said verbatim what you said!

I'm 6' (183cm) and at the very bottom of the spectrum for this frame...but I don't think it's that HUGE! :D Maybe it's the way the photo came out?

What size is it? I'm 6'3" and ride a 60cm, but I know two guys who are 3" shorter and insist on riding 61 and 63.

I am 195 (about 6'4") and I ride a 59cm Look
I have a lot of length in my legs, so the seat post is relatively high to the top tube, by then again I do have a 13 cm Stem, so it isn't that short over all (arms are also long)
