Beautiful build, it has inspired me to start a Pelizzoli. How was your experience ordering from them?

I actually bought this locally from the original owner, so I can't speak to the ordering process.

I would recommend a bike with slacker angles, especially head tube, than this bike. I would also recommend the 1" threaded steel fork option vs. the 1-1/8" threadless that I had.

nonagamy says:

I could definitely see that being a consideration. But, may I ask why you recommend the 1" threaded fork as opposed to the threadless 1-1/8"?

Aesthetics only, the steel fork is a work of art. The carbon fork that comes with it is a repainted Alpina track. Good but not beautiful.

It was a beautiful build, but it didn't handle how I wanted for a track bike on the street or velodrome. It was just too twitchy.

Damn, looks can be deceiving.

The head tube angle is very steep on this frame, probably around 75-76 degrees. This added to the super short wheelbase and aesthetic of the bike for sure, along with the downward sloping top tube. Extremely light frame too, as pictured with Zipps and no brake it was 6.8 kg spot on.

Sold them to finance my Colnago C59. If I get another set of carbon tubulars I'll get Campy Boras/Fulcrum Racing Speed for my road bike.

Such a nice go-fast machine! The Wound Up, the hubs. I've owned them and, though surprisingly heavy, are absolutely gorgeous and well made. So worth it! And of course the frame - Tre fresh!

brenmitch says:

Which hubs have you owned, the Zipps or the Miche? I'm strongly considering relacing my clinchers to Dura Ace 7600 hubs (single side fixed of course!) Nothing wrong with Miche but I built those wheels before having a Dura Ace crank and I love being matchy-matchy.

Oh I meant the Zipps. But yea the Miches are like DA-minus. Totally good for your b-bike.
