    I am curious how riding this will feel compared to one of your own creations. Please give a report when you get a chance.

    I raced one masters crit on my Marcelo, because my “race” bike needed a new BB.
    It performed superbly.

    Dario built bikes with racing in mind. It’ll do the job more than well enough…

    …as long as you’re prepared to risk crashing it…

    Went to the race ... totally different mindset from audaxes I have been doing. Missed the main group of actual road racing cyclist and was never able to catch up.

    After 20 minutes I was racing with non team cyclists. And the mentality "oh my god the paint" was left behind as the pulses went high.

    Oh my god ... if you got legs this bike can do everything. My lungs where the only obstacle. On the saddle, out of the saddle, cornering at descents (was fun for the first time) this bike is never the obstacle for performance. My lungs and fear at decent cornering is ...

    It corners beautifullyyyyyyy and that rear triangle ... u cant make it flex not even with 90 kilos out of the saddle.



    Aerodynamics aside ... which is my last concern at my current form ... I have never enjoyed a 80 km ride more.

    Love this frame and this setup.

    Good for you. I'd be too worried about crashing my Peg to race on it.

    And the joys of pack racing... once dropped from the peloton, your race is over. For runners and rides like Audaxes, that is a hard concept to get. But such a crucial aspect of bike racing. Remember it too well!
