    Hey Paolo! Haven't gotten to ride it yet - except for up and down the hallway - but I'm liking it! I had to stop myself on the build and keep myself from going off the deep end though. I think I kept myself together.

    Thanks again for the beautiful bike!

    I've always admired Paolo's black beauty and when I heard that it might be on the market, I thought that Jorn might be interested. It's cool to see this bike wear the modern Campag bits too and I've been patiently waiting for the Debutante photos. That bike is so proper and badass. Now you have me thinking Jorn...

    32 mile test ride. Very smooth riding bike. Feels very sure footed. And though it is different bike from my Gios, one similarity is that it rides much lighter than its weight. And it climbs very well (the Gios is a bit more pedestrian there.) When I got home the bike and I were covered with snow crud - all that sand and grit and oily carbon that makes snow melt so much fun to ride in. Took a while to get things decrudified. Need to do a little adjustment work on the front derailleur - might have cut the housing a bit short too. And relube some things - chain, etc. But otherwise, all is well.

    Thanks again, Paolo.

    ^^^ Nice!!

    Todd (I assume this is Todd rig) - I have the seat that matches that seat bag. I am sure we can work something out.

    Clipped from FaceBook. Spectacular result for Peter. His bike did very well at concours de machines 2017. This is huge.

    The results are in: award for the lightest bike and second overall, with zero penalties for malfunctions. Congratulations, Peter Weigle! You are once again proved the master.

    Well fekin' done to Jan Heine for the ride.

    When I saw this, all I could think was, "If the Weigle got second, who got first?"

    "Un couteau, une casserole et une brosse dent c'est deux manches de trop" indeed. I would've picked the Weigle over that contraption, but perhaps I'm biased.

    No disrespect to the Concours winner, but I'd take that Weigle and a bag of donuts, and never come back home. Sincere congratulations to Peter and Jan.

    Well, it is called the Concourse de Machines and not the Concourse de Elegance. That Weigle is the epitomy of both. Chapeau.

    I sort of get the judges' thinking on the winner. The folding rear triangle and pump in steerer tube are definitely unique innovations.

    Peter's bike riffed on established rinko concepts and used Compass components that are modern iterations of R. Herse designs. Nonetheless, Jan's write up underscores the great level of creativity Peter used to squeeze out every possible gram out of a steel bike that was able to go through hell without a mechanical issue. Even better looked magnificent doing so.

    OTOH, the JPW has a functional, lightweight pump neatly fitted on the Lh chainstay. Keep it modern but nice, the pump is there on hand when you need it without any fuss.
    As it should be.

    No argument from me Gattonero. In these competitions are not only technical, they are also for innovation which brings improved design blah blah blah. The fallout from these criteria lean heavily to reward high touch designs. Promise I'm not being nostalgic in any way when I refer to the Rapha Builders Challenge where I raced Curt Goodrich's lightweight traditional steel bike to second finisher and 12th place in jury. The winner finished well back, neither had faults and the winner had some Bad @ss design elements which worked, the jury loved and made everyone croon. There are no points awarded for marketability #yahfeelme
