Wowzers!
Where did you get to see the Quattro S1 from this close? That car is mythical!

One of the 20 homologation cars is in Finland also, but it’s in a private car museum.

Bad photo, but shaved 49 grams with color-matching Carbon-Ti axles. Now 8080g with pedals.

Campagnolo Ekar crank boots and chainstay protector have been replaced with carbon/kevlar motorsports tape.

I'm very happy with the bike after several thousand kilometers. It's stiff, precise, agile and comfortable, a true gravel superbike that makes my other gravel bikes feel uninspiring to ride.

Love the Kevlar tape, that finish is all over cars from this era. A great touch!

Great attention to detail. Love the crown on the downtube and various "sponsor" names on the bike

^ Yes that's a really nice video, for some reason YouTube already recommended it to me a while ago. :lol:

Henry Catchpole is also a cyclist BTW, and I exchanged some messages about my bike with him too...

Making the bike lighter with Far Sports FS36/32 wheels on DT240 EXP hubs while waiting for the snow to melt…

Weight is now 7,6 kg as pictured.

I will keep the Shamals for smoother surfaces with GP5000TL 32mm
