Thanks- & yep I'm with you... and the strangely shaped cast alloy rails of the Regal saddle don't agree with the pictured post anyway... new one on its way.

Cheers Fingers

Here is a pic of Pantani's Wilier that was possibly made by Pesenti.

That is lush. Relegating the black post for silver has made a big difference. Did you get the wheels off 'fastpartsforbikes' ebay store?

Thanks otherself- Yep FPFB & got them for a stupidly low price, so far so good. I contacted them through an ebay question and told them what I wanted and they gave me a price.

Swapping the post & saddle out and finally chopping the steerer has made a bigger difference than I thought to the bikes look. I'm really happy with it. Most importantly though it is a great bike to ride! It has changed my opinion about alu bikes.

Weight BTW is 19.2 lbs.
