Those red Enve decals are sweet. Always liked the look of Wiliers :)

Thanks. Unfortunately, the decals seem to be pretty fragile... not sure how long they'll last. I'll probably switch to a silver chain when replacing it. Too much contrast w/ the silver on the cranks. However, maybe Santa will bring me a Clavicula w/black/dark chainrings so I can keep the gold chain...

I like the gold chain. It's a good candidate for the black/red kmc dlc chain.

I agree: the black KMC X10Sl DLC chain would look great. But what I'd really like is a Clavicula crank, if it would fit the Wilier BB. Unfortunately, I'm told it won't work...

Re: Wilier Cento Uno: 6355 grams (14.01 lbs)

I've decided to switch the crank from the DA-7950 to a Campy SR Ultra torque (2011 version w/titanium spindle) and then remove the decals. This should shave off nearly 100 grams and better match the color scheme. I think the Campy crank will be stunning w/o decals.

Has anyone removed the clear coat and decals on Campy carbon cranks? If so, what technique did you use and how did it turn out? I know Gumgardner has done so on other SR components using a razor; others swear by Carbo Lift, acetone, and various paint removers like Oops. And did you refinish w/ clear coat or carbon wax???

PS: Although I've had a tantalizing nibble, I'm searching for the crankset; see viewtopic.php?f=46&t=8439

I have stripped some other parts before but the SR cranks were really hard to do.. like a gelcoat or something else that's way tougher than a clear coat. I like the results but it didn't save any weight (638g complete with Italian cups).

the problem? could be the nut behind the handlebars.

Thanks for the response, Uber, but I didn't mean to suggest that the reason for removing the decals was to save weight; rather that the switch from DA to Campy would save nearly 100 grams. Removing the decals would be for aesthetics only (owner vanity)...

Thanks.

BTW: What method did you use to remove the clear coat & decal from the SR crank? I'd love to see a close up pic of the result as the contrast on the pic of the bike makes it hard to really see/appreciate your handiwork...

Re: Update Wilier Cento Uno: 6101 grams (13.45 lbs), new pic

Postby Fourthbook » Thu Jan 05, 2012 11:13 pm

Made some holiday changes to the bike including Campy SR Ti crankset, black KMC-X10SL-DLC chain, black Lizard Skin bar tape and black PowerCordz Prime cables and housings. This brought the weight down to 13.45 lbs or 6101 grams. Thanks to those who answered my concerns about running a Campy 11 spd crank w/ a 10 spd chain, cassette and DA derailleurs. It works fine!

I wish that I could run those Enve wheels with my bike......

It's looking awesome and I can't believe how light it is!!!!!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Thanks, Pritch. I was pleasantly surprised w/ the new weight when we weighed the bike yesterday at my LBS on their Park digital scale. I'm a bit skeptical of the accuracy as I was expecting it to be about 13.75 lbs. Switching from the DA cranks to the Campy SR Ti cut about 120 grams. Perhaps the new Lizard Skin tape cut a few more grams over the prior Deda Elementi tape, and the new PowerCordz Prime cables/housings are certainly lighter than the Yokozuma but I don't know how much so (plus, we had to retain the Yoko steel cable for the RD b/c the PowerCordz cable wouldn't run smoothly thru the chain stay liner). Regardless, the steed felt spritely on my ride.

Hoping to visit Hearldsburg next autumn for some rides in Sonoma County...

Re: Done: Wilier Cento Uno, 6.01 kg, new pics p. 2

Postby Fourthbook » Fri Aug 24, 2012 4:58 pm

I'm done tinkering with my ride, except for replacement parts: 6.01 kg or ~13.25 lbs for its daily ride set up as shown in the pics; just under 13 lbs with my climbing wheelset. The collage shows the evolution of the bike over the past year when read from upper left to lower right (current set up). Cheers!
