$400? NZ?

I picked up a complete set of new Cinelli aerobars for $250 a while back, from the manufacturer... currently being used on Oli's TT Bianchi.

I'm loving the TT build - looks really different, but very purposeful!!

Decided to go for the switch to '08 Centaur over the '08 Ultegra on the Pinarello when it arrives. Mmm, carbon cranks and brake levers!

Nice choice - the Centaur carbon crank arms are basically identical to Chorus, withthe difference being the rings supplied. Might be worth trying to get them to swap out the cheaper rings and fit some nice UD rings.

Also - how does this affect your wheel choice for the Pina? Fulcrum? Handbuilt? Mavic? campy? A pair of Zondas, Racing 1's, OP's on centaur hubs?

I wouldn't have thought they would even allow you to put Japanese gear on an Italian Stallion!

It would be like getting Bridgestones on your Ferrari - oops that already happens!

They did the same with Opera too, those bastards! Still, beautiful bikes, and so purdy.

I remember when Colnago got the first batch of bikes made by Giant. They had very non-colnago geometry (which is really the main reason you buy a Colnago) and were much closer to TCR's in stay length, bb height, wheelbase, and front/rear centres. :(
