Hi guys.

So I've bought my first road bike in a few years, an absolute bargain.

However, I know very little about it and information is hard to come by, was hoping somebody might be able to shed a little light on it.

What I do know is that it is a Podium Carrera, the italian brand who lost a law suit against halfords and therefore no longer trade in the UK. The bike is a few years old, but I don't know it's actual age. It uses a 1" Ahead steerer. The frame has an Italian threaded Bottom Bracket, and is all aluminium (I think)

I don't know if the groupset is of the same age/era, but it is comprised of Campagnolo Mirage and Veloce, 9 Speed.

I have changed out the cockpit (except for the mirage levers which were already equipped) seat and post, as well as a few other bits, but the main part of the bike is as I bought it.

Can anyone tell me more about what I have bought?

Carrera made/make some great quality bikes. Podium have a few brands these days such as the Pantani brand that JE James sells.
As for yours it looks like a really nice machine, love the colour.
