Now that the rain has abated (slightly) it was time to clean of the winter sludge and revamp the road bike.

Built around a dedacciai scandium alloy semi-compact road frame with full carbon Lokk HCS 4 forks, it weighs in at around 8kg(ish).  With a mix of components picked for there performance and quality, though possibly a little dated.  With a Franco-Italian theme for the Grand Tours; Mavic provide the wheelset and brakes from their SSC pro range, Stronglight Pulsion chainset with TT rings, Campag gear levers and mechs, a Fizik Arione saddle and a Deda Magic finishing kit.  Dressed with HCtB decals and BBB red cork tape.
