Pinarello Montello SL, Chrome, Custom

Factory chromed Pinarello Montello SL, never painted, bought from a fellow Vancouverite who is a Pinarello aficionado. According to the previous owner this was a custom ordered frame by a team, never painted. The geometry is slightly different than a 'standard' Montello, slightly longer wheelbase overall. Instead of Columbus SLX, this Montello was built with Columbus SL.

More Info:
When I saw the frame I fell in love and wanted to build it up with one of my favourite group sets, Dura-Ace 7700. Although some would object to Shimano components on an Italian frame, I just loved the way the polished 7700 group set looks with the frame. The Pinarello pantographed stem was a lucky find but the 3ttt 25.4 clamp diameter limited my handlebar choices, luckily I have found the Nitto B105 is incredibly comfortable. The build is currently in-progress, still looking for these parts: Dura-Ace 7410 Headset, Dura-Ace 7700 Chain, Pinarello seat post 27.2 or Dura-Ace 7700 seat post 27.2.

I bike often on heavy traffic roads and usually prefer a braking option while climbing on the tops of my handlebars uphill, they only add about 140g so I don't mind them at all.

Oh okay.. I was just wondering... They seemed kinda out of place, but they're it to in your face

I made this the background of my computer screen for the longest time, but the fact that the tire stickers are not lined up with the valvestems bothered me so much that I changed it.

It is lovely, but I would go with Campagnolo record from the 70's-all silver and keeping it Italian.

I think the DA is nice and un-exepected on this. I was gonna comment on the Paul levers and the naked bars, but I see in your comments that you've got that covered. I'm doing the same with an old Colnago Super, hanging a 8-speed 7410 group off of it. Interested to see how your's turns out.

Sweet ride, btw!
