A little teaser - picked up a Colnago C60. Build up starting, any suggestions?

Handlebar stem combo by BERK? (Zipp dropbars with MCFK stem bonded)
Di2 9070 (I would go Campy EPS but my other 2 bikes run 9070)
LOOK blade pedals
THM brakes or EE brakes
THM crankset? - Something new or Clavicula
Wheelset - ENVE & lightweights (current wheels)
Saddle - I use a Aliante currently...any other suggestions?

Boys Toys...how exciting!

Nice! Before building this beauty up weigh the frame and fork and post it up - and eebrakes over THM. Better in every aspect other than a slight weight penalty.

Would be interesting to see WW components on a C60 as most are built as "classic" Italian bikes with little regard to saving weight. My choice would be: SR EPS shifters/FD/RD w/ V2 power pack installed in the seat tube; THM Fibulas; THM cranks (either Claviculas or the new top model rumored to be released later this year); AX, MCFK or Berk bar and stem; Lightweight Gipfs w/ Veloflex Carbon or Extreme tires; AX or Berk saddle; segmented brake cable housings (Aican or ILink) w/ KCNC ti cables.

Depending on frame size, you can probably achieve a total weight of < 13 lbs.

You can put WW parts on the C60 but it won't look best. I'd go full SR or SR EPS with deda 35 superlegerra cockpit and Bora wheels. I know boring but efficient.

Not boring at all. I second LionelB's advice but go for 2015 SR Mechanical and the new Boras coming out. I think the new mechanical group will surpass EPS both in looks and performace. I know you have two other bikes with Di2 so I get the reasoning to stay that course... But...

I really like Berk's work with the handlebar stem bonding....Campy sounds so tempting, but do you guys know if I can swap wheels with the Di2 bikes? I am currently using the older generation ee brakes and wanted to try something new - was reading about the THMs and they sound better if not just as good as the EE braking. How about saddles? Looking at something with the comfort of Fizik Aliante but lighter? Thank you all for the input and suggestions - please keep them coming...

Sorry pictures don't do the frameset justice, and my crappy images do it even less...

Personally i would go for mechanical dura ace 9000 and c24 wheels.thats because i have been on record/super record for the last 15 years and just curious about the 9000 group.

C60 is not a ww frame. So... no point on going for super lightweight parts IMHO. It will not even look better.

I kind of agree with the whole don't go WW on this build, however, on a personal level, I kind of like the feel of a sweet spot of about 6.4-6.5kg on my ride...not too light and not too pudgy...don't ask me why?! Having said that, still the question is can Di2 cogsets work on Campy EPS? vice versa...if so, I might have to go campy for this ride! Thank you everyone for the suggestions, advise and compliments!

Just picked up a pair of LOOK blades TI, stilling pondering the EE vs THM dilemma. Any idea when the new THM crankset is out?
