Up for regretful sale is my beloved Pinarello Montello complete road bicycle. Read on for details.
The bike was purchased about a year ago from Germany as a semi-complete frame/group set in need of some love. Since purchasing I have had the whole thing fully restored to nothing short of immaculate condition. The frame was resprayed by Paconi frame builders in Victoria with a brand new decal set from Cyclemondo. All chrome on teh frame and forks is original as there was no need to touch it. The groupset was beautifully restored by Andy of Fyxomatosis fame and the bike was carefully built by Nick from Saint Cloud to my very high (Read: OCD) standards.
I have taken it out about a dozen times since the restoration. Never in the rain. Most of these trips were coffee runs with a couple of 40-60km loops in there too.
I got married. Getting married costs money - hence the regretful sale.
This bike is mint, so time wasters/swaps please.
