    2008 Somec Maestro Close-Up Pics

    Since I received many PMB messages about sending close-ups of my new build I thought it would be easier to just post them for all to see. I hope these help.

    I really like the color...unique and fresh. A pair of Ursus green and white wheels would have set it off perfect, for me that is, but a very nice build indeed. I'm guessing around 7.4 kg?

    This particular model is still made in Italy by hand. They sent me pictures of the build process every week for 3 months. It was a tedious process, but the outcome is amazing.

    Why on earth do you feel the need to bring this up in every single thread about a carbon bike? Everyone gets your point.

    Amazing bike. That is so cool they kept you in the loop during the building process.

    It was really an excellent purchasing experience. I do wish it was a faster process. But as they reapeatedly told me, you cannot rush perfection.They had a point.

    Love the colour, love the look. In fact, love everything about it.

    Could you let me know how much the frame costs?

    Thanks

    I think it is totally relevant where it is made. If there is a big sticker that says "Handmade in Italy".....then it should be. I'm glad to see that it IS made in Italy.

    Nice modern ride. I like that stem.

    I'm sorry. I'm not sure about the UK. I ordered mine from the US Distributor here in the States.

    Beautiful

    Nice looking bike. I love the Bar/Stem combo. I just think that you should go with more italian components. But I am glad you like it. I am about to give a try to Sram Red myself.
    Enjoy

    I ride components that work for me and are time tested. Italian, Taiwanese or American I ususally choose what I have used for years. All these components have been raced by me personally and I know they hold up to the beating I give a bike every season.

    This combo is amazing. I tested it on a Demo Bike and fell in love with the feel and the clean look. I can't wait to hammer on it.
