    Have a 2008 one of these ,lovely bike to ride but i found that the paint faded on one part of the frame so part of it is white and some of it turned a sort of cream colour also the clear laquer over the paint chipped off easily.

    What does it retail at? By accounts on other cycling forums its the same frameset as the Ribble Sportive. I'd imagine you can by the Ribble with the identical spec for half the price (Centaur £1,100ish) than this sells for here.

    I have the one down from it the Mortirolo as does at least one of the other guys on here and I love it, every time you push the pedals starting off it makes you smile! I have the basic spec, Veloce and Fulcrums 7 but think it's a great bike.I've had no issues with lacquer coming off at all, still looks as good as the day I bought it.

    I can't remember the prices, but they're discounted in Cycle Surgery in Dundrum at the moment. I saw them on Saturday, and i think there was a couple of hundred off the marked price. Look like nice pieces of kit.

    There is 400 pounds off the Uk price on the cycle surgery website, Its abit of a runout model as they have taken it off the wilier website. It has been replaced by the Izoard xp

    I got mine in cycle persuits in Limerick. You should check there as they have good prices and the spec provided was higher than advertised.

    It won an award in 2009 from outside magazine and generally has good writeups.
