This was my Gios Aerodynamic about 6 years ago - before it got the full resto treatment:

I'm running a fixed-gear conversion on a Battaglin full carbon race frame, as well as using this for my blasts along the towpath and fire roads to work (ridden the Southdowns Way in under 10 hours too):

.. my current fixie whilst the Hotta is having the seat pin reamed out !
good rigid power delivery but it does have a bit of 'spring' in the seat boom which is good at reducing the smaller bumps from the appalling UK roads
it is a Carbon Sports Total Eklipse frame. Fantastic Green or Blue flip / flop lacquer on the carbon frame - hard to get a picture in the blue.

Built the Dolan up, rides a dream, so much quicker than the old Lemond.

Looks pretty dull so am hopefully gonna strip it down and give it a spray this weekend.
