Wilier Cento uno/ SRAM red

Originally uploaded by Hypercat Bike Works

For those in the market for a very nice Italian bike that is just as good to train on everyday as race, the Wilier Cento Uno Superleggera is one of my favorite choices. Well balanced, light and responsive, excellent stability on downhills and very smooth and comfortable. This example was built with SRAM red, Powertap, Speedplay titanium, Profile Cobra carbon bar and stem combo and color matched Jagwire throughout. Because this is a bike designed to be ridden daily we chose to stick with black tape and hoods. All in all a very nice package at 14.82 lbs, and just a tick over $10,000.
