    Hi Rhauft,

    What's the difference between a Prince LTD and a Standard Prince? I'm 5'9" with 82.5cm inseam and I am getting a 54 Prince. This will be my first road bike I have a Scott Scale LTD and a Scott Spark also now.


    Thanks!


    Francis

    The Ltd. is the Caisse d'Epargne team issue with Campy Record & all other components of the build are select Pinarello MOst, made from the same Torray 50HM1K carbon including bars, stem, post & crankset.

    Amen brother!
    I started this thread 10 months ago when I got this bike. I'm still blown away by it.
    I took that shot just for that reason... even though the bike is actualy laid up in Asia.
    Personally, I don't care where it's made. State of the art baby!

    I was thinking of getting the Campy record compact crank with 50-34 chain rings for my Prince.

    This would mean a lower mounting of the Front Der.

    I'm thinking now - won't this cover the "Made in Italy" on the frame?


    Just a thought.

    I agree with ya. Who cares where the carbon is laid or molded. Poo poo on those who wanna preach china this and taiwan that. Hell, all that is just geography.
    A canadian made Honda Accord is just as good as a Japanese made Accord.
    The bike is still painted, stickered, assembled in Travisio and labelled Made In Italy.
    Over 60% is all thats required

    hello gents. i'm getting my prince in a couple of weeks. no record groupo. decided to
    go with the sram red instead. one dilema. i'm tossing between the most stem and the
    fsa stem.

    which one is better? what would you choose?

    Only change I've made is that I've pulled all the spacers. I am 170 lb and this bike feels like it is made from one peice of solid granite (weighing 14.5 lb.) Stiff and responsive.

    well. i'm planning to get the fsa handlebar. i was thinking of getting the fsa stem
    to match with the handlebar, or should i keep the most handle bar to match the
    seat post.

    Nice, bella bicicletta BUT!

    How does it ride? I've heard it's very, very stiff that hurts. Only suitable for
    racing hounds. Is this true?

    Looks great! But...remove the yellow caps on the valves (Bora) and the "warning" sticker on the side of the rim - that will make it look like PRO bike.

    I love bike porn... Nice job. Classy Italian bling. Only thing sexier would be that on the back of a black 360 spyder in route to some nice hills for the weekend!
