We luck out again and get our wish as a nice little care package floats across the ocean and lands in out lap. PEZ roll out a personal fit session with Ernesto and his latest test bike, Colnago’s Extreme Power.
Veltec Sports kit out a 585 with a combo of Easton and Look gear (favorites of ours anyhoo) and toss it at Pez. Not a tough catch as, although we pulled off a few weight weenie parts that had the test bike at 13 and change, the bike still kicked in at the UCI minimum. But weight is never the best measure of a bike, so we thought we best actually ride it.
We get an extended leg over Joseba Beloki’s new bike. Hot off the plane and harder to find than a good burrito in Burma, we ride the Scott Saunier Duval Prodir Team Edition CR1. Now if we can just convince 'em that a long term test is in their best interest!!! Take a peak.
We took the Co-Motion Ristretto to the battlefields of Belgium and Northern France, to ride the ‘bergs and pavй in the worst Spring weather the Classics could throw at us. The weather was tough, the riding was tougher… but toughest of all was the bike.
