Bought as separates in Q1 2008, I wanted a bike that would last.

Great mile muncher, pretty nippy round town too. I probably won't be doing any road racing, so the extra clearance and compliance is just great.

Only criticism is that the paint chips too easily, and the Veloce steel axles have a bit if surface rust after 10 months or so and no real wet weather. (added a bit of grease on the surface to counter this). Hammerite gold paint isn't the same, but used to cover the paint chips.

3 years on, the bike is still a joy. The Deda Newton bars logos are a bit rubbish and have come partly off, the charge tape is too slippy and not cushioning enough, so that will change, and the saddle has changed a few times, but I'm still enjoying it as my main road bike. There's something about riding steel amongst friends with aluminium and carbon.

The Look pedals are an improvement over the SPDs they replaced as a pedalling platform, but have been creaking which is a little irritating.
