So after much testing and trying I've gone for the aspirational rather than the practical. Matteo Carrera has just retired from the peloton with Vaconsoleil. He is now the in house consultant with Cadence Performance in South London. I've for to know him through training rides and coaching. I'd previously ridden a Noah Fast on a very windy day and loved it however the price tag is pretty steep at just under 4000€ for the frameset alone! Matteo's just got himself a Passoni and put his Noah up for sale. Enter me! Spend a large chunk of today getting fitted. Being Italian he loves the short leg set up which feels weird but has worked wonders for my knee pain when he fitted my other bike. http://instagram.com/p/ccg4a6n7A3/ http://instagram.com/p/cbde6OH7Ku/ We went out for a spin with Matteo videoing me and we took the south London traffic by surprise! For you tech fiends its dura ace di2, dura ace c35 clinchers, rotor 3d+ 52/36 Q, deda cockpit and speedplays. http://instagram.com/p/cbdYCmH7Kg/ Look out for some Strava PR's hopefully very soon!
