Nice. I just don't like the tall Acros headset.... If I was in your situation, I would get the older headset and use it with only the low top cap and a 82° stem, would look cleaner.

Enjoy your Colnago. Great bike.
I would have had leaned the bike against this nice colored old wall. Piece of art. :thumbup:

Nice bike but a traditional geo would look better IMHO.

Love that, Eurperg.

Actually I am waiting for the DeDa Superleggero in order to keep the stealth look

Another option will be change both the stem and handlebar to ENVE
