So I want to like it because, well, build list, but I'm like, wow, that's busy with a lot going on. Maybe stealth wheels, an all black chain and an all black saddle to let the frame do the talking would be better?

To me, the only thing that really looks out of place is the red in the saddle. Other than that, that is a good looking build!

Agreed about the saddle, but I'll admit that the discount I got on it was so good I just took it, figuring it'll spend most of its time out of view under my ass anyway ;-)

Although if anyone has an ideas on how to black it out so that it won't colour my bibs, I'm all ears.

The chain I thought worked pretty well, but I will try an all black one when it's time to replace it, the nice thing with chains is you can experiment a bit as they are disposable parts and try something new when it wears out if it didn't work out as planned. At least it isn't a gold chain ;-)

Flawless color frame! Congrats
Curious about this 'Storm bottle cage'. The design remember Arundel Mandible. They holds as good as mandibles? Do you weigh them?
Thnx

Yes they look like mandibles, hold quite securely, weight is 35g per cage for a little over quarter of the price, so I don't mind the slight weight penalty

Thanks for the reply and pics.
Oh, and i think this is the first time that i see a Colnago with Sram. Strange, but wireless is the future - mechanical sram would be a heresy. Hehe
Congrats again!

+1 on the saddle. Other than that it looks great.

Unfortunately for me we've had flooding overnight, so not been able to get out and ride it properly yet, just my luck!

Black shoe dye, I did this to a current year slr team.......although the cover is lorica or some sort of artificial leather, the dye won't work perfectly, it will wear through and the black has a blue tinge to it, it does tone it down considerably though......

It's such a great bike, although not a big fan of the SRAM, I think MHCF Is the only Color I would entertain of the current offerings.

Thats one nice looking ride and the saddle to bar drop just makes my back ache simply by looking at it.

Just one thing though, in addition to the saddle, the graphics on the seatpost look a bit out of place

That's the Colnago post that was supplied with it, I had a choice between this and a matte one, and this looked much better. I may look at getting a matching MHCF painted post sometime in the future.
