As an entry level carbo bought in 2015 with many a
birthday voucher, I thought this bike suited my intent
to slowly get into road biking.

I was early 40s and have always been built for punchy
court-based sport, so no aims of doing the Tour for me!!
Just interested in improving woeful cardio in a scenic
and semi-social way.

Wilier's black and red Triestana Izoard initially stood out
from the plethora of possibles due to price (top of my
double monkey range), looks (as a road novice this is
important 😁) and semi rarity - not a halfords boardman
or specialized.

On viewing and testing the Italian flair in store I became
boy-like excited like when you buy your 1st car. I made
sure shoes and clothing kept the ambience of someone
who knows what they're about and was on the road in a
few days.

Shimano Clip ins were murder for a full month of irregular usage...to
be fair, they sort of still are 2.5 yrs on.

Izzy is now my fairweather sunday morning companion.
She's never let me down, responds well to a good clean
and seems to like hills. 20 gears as opposed to the 27
on my well loved 1996 Saracen Tange crossover
are more challenging but a good starter range.

I've been able to ride the September L2B several
times on this Izoard, raising charitable funds for
causes, and now feel much more capable to around
the 60mile distance - 10x what I started out with.

I confess to loving this patient yet eager ride. 2.5 yrs on,
her looks still hold very well, gears still change smoothly
and the ride remains sure.

The dream is now to ride the Tour mountain after which
the bike is named. One day 😆.
