Bellissimo, magnifico, sorry came over all Italian then for a moment. A truly magnificent bicycle, that deserves to enjoy a fitting retirement, only being ridden on very sunny days or special occasions :wink:

Those Campagnolo gear levers put me in mind of ICS ones that had rubber injected in the middle and the same curve super cool 8) 8)

Love it :D

How do you do the basket weave bar taping? Just trial and error? I want to try this on a bike of mine. Any tips?

It's called Harlequin or diamond wrap.
Basically two tapes going in opposite directions, over and under each other.

Quite simple in theory but while doing it, I often wish I had a couple of more hands. :wink:

Thanks for the tip. The bike is amazing and that taping puts it over the top!
