Nice clean build and great pic. Is that your final setup? The drop looks like 15cm or more?? What is it in that pic?

It's the final build. Didn't change anything for the sake of the picture.
I haven't measured the drop. It just feels nice, as it is.
Thanks for the kind words.

Understandable. They do look a lot alike. Actually thinking of going for some lower rims, when these need replacing.

Well done. Very elegant too. Like a classic titanium racer.

How does it ride?

Thank you.

It rides like a dream. It's stiff all around, no power feels like is going to waste. It's very lively in the front. It handles like atrack bike and it just feels like the bike is with you all the way.
all that together makes for a silky smooth feel but a very aggressive bike.
I tell my self, that I feel the Colnago pedigree in the way it performs.
