Beautiful frame, very... eclectic build. You are using Campagnolo 10v shifters with Di2? What is this diabolical combination? ;-)

Whoa. I too am intrigued by the shifters.

Great bike and build too, by the way!

Eclectic is a good way to describe it for sure.

Yes, Campagnolo 10s brake levers, with the shift lever from a left 10s shifter chopped off and epoxied to the backside of the right brake lever. Cateye buttons were then glued to that so that it has a cleaner look. I have always like the feel of the Campagnolo 10s hoods. The sequential shifting of my Di2 system is so nice that I can't imagine riding anything else. I'll get a set of buttons wired up for next to the stem for shifting when on the bar tops, but I just haven't gotten around to that yet. Hopefully this weekend.

Thanks for the explanation. Now I seem to remember you posting about this somewhere (Fairwheels' forum?) some time ago?

Ya - there was a lot on the old FWB forum from this setup on my Cervelo. It's on here for that bike too.

Here's a shot from on the road today.

I don't mind the build at all. Enough matching red to look pleasantly balanced to me.

What size frame? Looks nicely proportioned for this colour scheme.

Totally know the feeling of getting older and Colnago is a great choice. The EP was/is a great frame.

And the hack you did on the campy 10 speed shifters is awesome!!!! I always really liked the look of those shifters, too. My hands are fairly larger than the average cyclists - so when they cam out with the 11 speed shifters it was a welcome change for me.

Anyway, dig the bike. Good job.

I liked the ep so much, I bought two with different paint schemes.

Yup, 50s.

Thanks to all for the nice words. I'm really loving the ride and will try to get her a bit lighter at some point. The only place to save weight are probably the bars and seatpost. Possibly the rear hub if I ever decide to re-build the rear wheel. All of the other parts I don't see as an option to change - I have tried full carbon saddles and AX lightness brakes before and those just aren't an option. I have already swapped all possible bolts to titanium. The stem is the lightest one that I could find where the stem was large enough so that the Di2 sequential "brain" would fit inside to keep it safe and that I could safely drill holes in it.
