Anyone have an old link or owners manual of the 2003 Izoards? This is a shot in the dark but thought I'd ask. Got the new bike and the previous owner said it was a 54cm.

Pictures to follow, a ride first.
That is my old frame/fork, glad you like it. It is a 53cm, 540 top tube but I have no idea about the rest of the geometry myself. The bike handled better with the Easton fork (as opposed to the stock Mizuno passing as a Wilier fork).
Enjoy!

I'm building up the same frame as above and am looking for the lightest build possible. CUrrently its is added up at around 6.885kg but the forks metal steerer seems to be weighing it down. Would anyone think a EC90 fork would look bad (it would save more that 200g)

thanks

My Wilier Team Lampre scandium carbo

Hi All,

I bought a Willier Team Lampre scandium carbon Frame and fork at the end of last year and built it up with Ultegra 10 Speed and with ITM millenium 4ever bar and stem and Real Design Ultrasphere wheels.

I love the bike and have not been able to get out on it over the past 5 months due to a neck injury from a car accident.

But on the rides I had last winter, I must say it is the nicest bike I have ridden to date.

I have some pics which i will up load if any one wants to see it.

Wilier Lavaredo 2005

My perfect partner. I love to be with her.

She is equiped with Bontrager X-Lite Wheels and a Centaur-group. Colours are black/white/red, in my opinion the colour-combination to choose, even more with the compatibel colours of the Bontrager-wheels. Strange enough, I do not find the same painted bike on the net...

I use the bike for several purposes. In roadraces, I felt already three times with this bike, but the frame seems to block these shocks like they were some sweet kisses. Recently, I was on holiday for eleven days, backpacked with 15 kg, so 85kg in total and I had not any damage on my bike. This, I cannot say concerning my earlier bikes.

Only riding on 'pavés' gives me some trouble. But I am also a 9.0-bar-tyre-lover, and the X-Lite Wheels are not made for this kind of work.

To all of you, thinking of buying a racing bike: Choosing Wilier is choosing for Italian-style topmodel-frames. Wilier makes reliable bikes and they make you ride faster, just because you feel the speed inside the frame.

Pinarello, Colnago, Lemond (recent past bikes). The Evasion is pretty good.

I finally got it together and on the TRAILS. Here are a few pictures. I bought the frame in Sicily just before I returned to the states. I sent the frame to California to my Brother-in-law where the build began. I just received it in the mail a few days ago. It was worth the wait. View attachment 98579

Thanks....!!!!
I wish I could take the credit for it but it was my Brother-in-law who did the entire assembly. After completing the build (not one of his easier builds either), he disassembles it, boxes it up, and sends it all the way across the great US of A. When I got it…unwrapping it was the hardest part, I had everything back together in less than an hour and I didn’t touch or adjust anything. All I can say is it rides as nice as it looks……Thanks Brother Niel!!!!

My new Lavaredo Cronos

Like other posters, I was getting yanked around trying to buy the frame state side. My "local" dealer (120miles away) said they'd check, called back 5 minutes later saying it wasn't available and tried to sell me a Kuota. I ordered through Bellatisports and it was a perfect transaction. Great communication, spot on estimates of delivery time, good price. After the build (minus wheels which I'd have swapped anyway) this build cost about the same as a stock Trek Equinox w/ 105. I know I'd rather be riding this!

Build is Ultegra drivetrain, DA bar-con shifters, Easton bar and aeros. Spinnergy Stealth wheels. I had 1 quicky 10 miler today and it's fast. Even with dead legs from a hilly century yesterday, it was screaming fast.
