In 20 years of WW I don’t think I ever posted a complete bike… I have a built story but never satisfied by the writing🫣

In the meantime 5870g in aero version ready for the Alps (mean GPS, assioma PM, 11-32 cassette)Image

Can drop 200g with the CCUs and the Corsa Speed that is the very best version of the bike, but use only during properly planned rides.

Few “just for the pleasure of attention to details cause this is WW”
- hollow Ti screws
Image

- Ti hoods collars (collar and screws) with carbon plates
- Differentiated Ti QR (carbon Ti on front, Corima with thick Ti axle at the rear and home made final nut)

Attention to details on the finish
- Lucendi 3D printed spacers for the Farsport bar
Image

- Lucendi 3D printed Wahoo bolt for the bar
Image

- bars wrapped trop down (no electrical tape to finish)
- shrink tube to finish the brake cables
- shrink fabric to secure the di2 cables

And probably the geekiest thing… out of curiosity, temperature stripes to see the max temp recorded with my rim brakes (there are under the latex tube too)

So sad .... not a single disc brake rotor in sight!
So, what is the average cost to build these bikes?

Amazing weight for such a heavy frame.
Although the 11g cassette must help 😉
