This is my custom built Serotta Nove. It's built for centuries, long charity rides, club rides and good weather commuting (I like to take 20 mile diversions when the weather is lovely).

It's the smoothest, buttery ride I've ever had. Pure floating on air stuff.

Looks great! (Although I would have preferred the full-Ti variant.)

Record crankset looks hot!

Record crankset looks hot! Awesome bike, lovin' the Campy.

Thanks :) It's damn fast,

Thanks :)

It's damn fast, yet still dampens the road noise enough to give that perfect buttery smoothness.

The Campy stuff I adore. I have a Cannondale fitted with Record Carbon stuff too. The shifting is unbelievably smooth at any speed, and you can really feel the power transmission when you want to sprint (even when you're already giving it everything, it will spurt forward on the smallest additional effort).

Personally unconvinced of the need for the Carbon crank though. But hey, it looks cool so perhaps that extra couple of hundred quid makes it worth it.

Do you think the red tyres are too much? They're my only niggle, and let's face it if that is all I have to consider changing; then it's a dream bike.

I'll get the Cannondale (R900, over-hauled with Record Carbon stuff and Fulcrum Racing 1's), and the Bob Jackson (fixed) up soon-ish... probably in late Aug, Sep.

carbon, red tires . . .

David, I'd sh*tcan the tires (uh, tyres, my fault) because they are too orange. Maybe another colo(u)r or just stripes rather than the whole dang sidewall. Since you asked. I'd never see them anyway as you flashed by me, so what do I care.

Carbon looks cool, if you've got the jack. Matches the rear triangle anyway. Wouldn't a Brooks Swallow look bitchin? You know, support the homeboys and all...

I run the light grey

I run the light grey Michelins on the bike now. The tyres were too off-colour for my liking. The grey seems too add to the luxury/quality perception, and don't look as crap when a little dirty :)

As for saddles, I tried a lot of saddles before settling on the Alianti. It's a very personal choice, and yes I prefer the look of Brooks but my arse prefers the feel of the Aliante.

Arse comfort

I understand. Very nice bike though, and just today I thought, rather randomly, that grey would be the right colour for your tires. Wierd wavelength there. Good riding.
