Well boys and girls Mr. Fed-Ex brought me a new toy late Monday and yesterday it was assembled. It's an '03 Merak in Alessio paint--I am not a big fan of team colors but the bike looked too damn good so I thought what the hell. It was down to this bike or a Merckx SC--tough choice but I went with Ugo based on geometry and fit.

Chorus 10 kit on the bike, Protons, Arundel Carbon Cages. I'll have to go to a shorter stem and play with the stack height some but luckily I have the next three days off to do that. It seems a tad stiff so far ...the real test begins in a few hours. Unless my buyers remorse sets in again and the cold north wind blows any harder. (laughs)
Very nice. Is that a new or used frame? Ugo sure knows how to build a bike......... and regarding your freight company, your welcome ;) ........

Frame was/is new. I can't order through my shop but I found this one for a price similar/better to employee purchase. It seems that the '04 has some big changes and thus demand for this one is down. My total investment was low so it's a no-risk way to try yet another beautiful machine.
If I ever got way from my LOOK fetish, De Rosa would be very high on my list. 50 years of bikes from the "other" great Italian frame builder
