    Calling All Wilier Owners!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Lets spread the love of our bike frames! What kind of Wilier you own and why you like it over other bike frames.

    Let's start a movement on this site and get Wilier out of "other builders" and into it's own category....:thumbsup:

    Post a pick if you've got one.

    Wilier Team Bike
    There is a gerolsteiner (sp?) team bike with full 10 speed DuraAce at a local LBS here in Italy for 4200 Euro....to give you an idea what things cost. It's on sale...same frame as the LeRoi I believe just different paint.
    Very nice. Too bad the dollar vs. euro conversion is in the tank at the moment....

    I just received my Wilier Mortirolo bike and today I had my first ride. This bike is awesome - it is fitted with a complete Centaur triple group + Chorus rear derailleur. Moena wheels. I paid EUR 1272.87 in a danish webshop: http://www.bikebuster.com/shop/nf_in.../varenr/120659

    This must be the world's best price on this bike - there are only a few sizes left - mine is sold out. It is a 60 cm model.

    Has anyone out there ridden the 2006 Wilier Le Roi? Any reviews you can provide? (I know Chris Boardman reviewed the Lampre team issue version of this bike in procycling magazine about four months ago and gave it a largely positive review.)

    Exact Pronunciation?
    Okay,

    Is the name pronounced Wilier (While-e-er) or ( Vv-ill-ier)

    I've heard both but not sure coming from Italian to English.

    i got one...
    it is a grammont nem, blue w/all kindsa neony swirly airbrushed graphics. the nemo tubes are damn thin, but the top and downtube are oversize and triangle shaped, along with the chainstays being oversize and corrugated full length, and sprinter style fastback seatstays no real flex comes outta it.

    the orig steel fork cracked, i replaced w/ a profile carbon bsc, super stiff indeed.

    i'd love to post a pic, but my camera seems to take 'em too big for RBR.

    i rode this for three years, most recently all wet and dark winter w/ a lighting syst.
    it served me well, but is not gettin' ridden at all since gettin' my new bike. i'll probably use it again this winter.
    a bit on the twitchy side, and harsher riding than all carbon, i would still love a le roi iff'n i could get one in my size, ere, i mean, permission to buy one from my loving...not that that has always stopped me before.

    this from a guy (not me) who goes to italy to his vacation cabin at least,
    vil-ee-ay
    this is a kinda approximation, it is a slurred v-w combined consonant sound for the first syllable,
    followed by a
    combined ee-ay vowel, for the second and third.
    this is how it sounded to me upon hearing it recanted.

    I just ordered up an aluminum version of the crono in Lampre colors for my new TT bike build. I agree the Wilier brand has some beautiful frames and with the number of teams that ride them and the quality they should get more attention. I think they have been around for 100 years, not like they just started working last year.

    I think they are hurt some by their importers, at least in what I saw looking for mine.

    I let you all know if I run into any problems with my purchase though cadencecycling in Philly none so far. I was afraid they would be too pricey looking at their website but an email and a call later they quoted me a good price, shipped for $25 and I am pretty satisfied so far.

    The price was very comparable to what I saw through the European websites, especially given that I don't have to fool with them and the wait times or some of the problems I have read on here for purchases made from that side of the planet. Not that some of them aren't really good people to deal with.

    I will try and remember to post a pic when I get the frame. The build is going to take awhile though. I am deploying overseas soon so I probably won't finish putting it together till I get back next year. Give me something to think about while I am in the middle of nowhere.

    Let me know if you have any ideas for my new TT rig. I am open to suggestions.

    Anyone have an old link or owners manual of the 2003 Izoards? This is a shot in the dark but thought I'd ask. Got the new bike and the previous owner said it was a 54cm.

    Pictures to follow, a ride first.

    Love this bike, it climbs like no other bike I've owned.

    Here is a pictures of my Wilier Crono that just came in
    Attachment 62594

    It's the aluminum version, probably going to be harsher than the scandium and carbon versions but I think it should do the job for a TT bike pretty well. I think the welds look pretty good, the rough appearance on some Al frames throws me off.

    I wish I could tell you that I'll put some finished build pics up soon, but I leave for Iraq soon so I will get back to you in the Spring on that. It will be raced next year though, most of the parts are on there way. I guess I have few months to get some brakes, and maybe a set of wheels. That and maybe an upgraded seat post are all I need right now. I think I will get an aero post for it but I am going to set up my position first for a while so I can get the measurements right if I order a bladed one (not that I think that makes it much faster).

    Didn't weight it yet (probably won't, I build them up, pick them up and as long as it feels light, I am happy), the scandium frame is supposed to be 1100g and the carbon 1350g, this one should be somewhere in between according to Wilier.

    I am thinking there probably are not many Marines who have bike frames with a pink pinstripe, but I like it.

    by the way that's a carpenter's pencil I wedged into the headtube to hold the fork in long enough for the pic, I was gentle.

    Nah that's not right.....in Italian you pronounce it like this: Vili_air or even Wili-air . "W" is often pronounced as a "V" in Italian however this is not a cardinal rule."W" is not part of the Italian alphabet therefore it is open for debate as to how it is pronounced.

    That is my old frame/fork, glad you like it. It is a 53cm, 540 top tube but I have no idea about the rest of the geometry myself. The bike handled better with the Easton fork (as opposed to the stock Mizuno passing as a Wilier fork).
    Enjoy!
