Thank you all for appreciation!
Something tells me that frame is too small for them...
Amazed those radial wheels are strong enough for someone that's clearly 10 foot tall!
seems to have quite an aggressive fit on all their bikes, including one they custom-built for themselves, so perhaps they're just a flexible person in addition to being incredibly tall:
Refurbed this Principia frame for a customer a while back. Painted to his design. Only input I had was making the Italian colours on the chainstays a bit bolder and asymmetric.
Personally, I really didn’t like it at all when I shipped it back to him, but he sent me some pics of it built a few weeks back and I actually think it looks pretty good built up!
Doing the graphics in this font was a specific request (each to their own etc...), as was the Italian flag colours on the chainstays.... which I was a little confused by, as pretty sure Principia are not Italian!?
Colourwise it's a Willier cromovelato replica. That's why he wanted the Italian tricolore on it.
Oh yeah, a Ramato lookalike was what he wanted.... just didn’t get the Italian tricolore, as Principia are Danish (?).
Anyways, makes for a pretty modernised classic build IMHO!
Yes, Danish or something else up North.
Is the flag upside down?
It is, indeed...
Hah, thats a very confused bike.
It's correct for those who fell head over heels for it.
Should have made it a Hungarian flag for maximum confusion.
This bike was on a recent GCN video, unless there's two of them.
asymmetric flag, just like he wants :D
Wouldn't mind riding that, although the more I look at the flag, the more it confuses me.
Probably wouldn't work the other way though because of red into red.
Done an EDITED>>>>
I just painted it like he drew it!
Flag colours are in the same orientation as Wilier do it. And they are legit italians.
Nice bike. Those wheels should be cool to ride on. Although (that's like my opinion) Principia frames look better in an originalish setting. This is a 15 year old Principia frame with brand new Campagnolo Veloce and Calima. Costed less then half of what a friend paid for a new CAAD13. After riding both of them I still prefer the Principia.
