Lovely.

Based on my previous experience of thin walled steel tubes, now that you have a seatpost installed, clamp your workstand to that. Would be awful to dent the top tube before she's built!

Also, resist the tempatation to build her up imediately before you have applied frame saver inside the tubes. Messy job, but these frames are for keeps and it will be worth the slight delay in the build process.

I went for an aheadset front end, so I am intrigued to see how yours shapes up. I have gone for a black stem, dropped some spacers and changed the bar tape to white since these photos which were taken as part of the first build process back in February.

I also have Moots RSL with Lightweights and Super Record EPS but I reach for my Master 30th when I want something special to ride. There's more to life than light weight. The ride quality of my Master is unsurpassed. It is a bit intangible, but definitely evident.

It is really interesting to see as more 30th AD10s emerge from the factory how the paint job varies. There are some subtle differences between all of the bikes I have seen. Some have more airbrushing on the headtube than others with a white core like the downtube, but mine is just plain blue with the neon airbrushing.

Also, the amount of white on our top tubes differs. Your top view rider is almost entirely surrounded by white, and the word 'Master' is also onto white, whereas mine in more blue. Also, the R of Master is in pink on yours.

I quite like these touches. Makes you appreciate the fact that they were painted by hand. What would be inconsistency to some manufacturers is amuzingly positioned as artisan by the Italians!

I'll do the finishing touches after work and then a little test ride

I wish I was small. Small bikes always look nicer than the farm gates I have to ride! And to get a decent position on a big bike, I always end up using too many spacers to be aesthetically pleasing.

Coming together nicely that. Not sure about the blue rims though. Maybe too much colour.

I might have to chop down the steerer and fit a quil stem having seen yours.

it is a 56cm traditional, which is I guess together with the 52s the most balanced frame size as it is in the middle of the curve

too much color ? I don't think so ;)

I will ride it initially on that SLK, but I just bought a flite 2013 for the C-50 and my @ss really seems to like it, so probably will order a white one for the master.

But before of that I will ride it a bit like this, and then try the Swift, then decide.

theres is never too much blue ( or pink ) on a Colnago

Oh and that is a Chorus Cassette with the middle spacer also blue anodised, but well it is not visible on this pic.

I just seen the Caleido bar tape is EVA..... mmm pretty as it is I prefer cork on my bar tape.... I will set it up with simple white cork and maybe put some colorful plugs

I love how the ornament on the chainstay aligns perfectly with the crankset rings.... one more reason to not go compact on this.

I set it up temporarly with a "recovered" white tape and went out for some pictures, can't ride today because of work and rain that is starting to come. but I can tell this bike feels really good, I think I will fall in love again.

Nice balanced build. Best thing is that you went with a quill stem on this frame... it looks so right here and I love that.
But the rear brake housing is way too short. That needs to be redone.

I think the frame is really pretty and stands on it's own. I would use white finishing tape versus the blue you have on there. White saddle and white tape is nice on this, but I've never warmed up to white hoods on the levers. Black always works, no matter what colour tape you have going on. I'd also opt for silver cages over the blue ones. Same goes for the rims... I think blue mavic rims take away rather than add to the whole look imo. It's a beautiful frame and the rims detract, rather than complement.

Overall, a beautiful bike... a keeper for sure.

Hello Calnago

Yes it is short, all the build kit came from the Dream, included the housings, I will put new cables and white housing once I decide what the final build will be on this Master.

I have a 2009 Record 11 and a 2011 SR11 groups that I could also use.

Basically the silver components look simply right on this build. It bothers me a bit the fact it is a lower end group, on a frame that is quite costly, it deserve a high end group, but hélas no silver SR group avaliable.

The blue stuff comes also from the Dream and I quite like it.

Alternatively I have a tubular set on Mavic GP4 rims and could also build a set on silver Open Pros, but for the moment I am loving it as is.

BTW all those blue accents remember one very pretty Italian girl, a mediterranean beauty with very blue eyes, this bike will be named after her :)

Looking great, I'd be pleased too. If I had those sorts of parts handy if happily be using those and would only do a few things differently but that's the beauty of being able to express yourself with a collection of parts. Can feel the passion already just from a picture. Enjoy riding it, can't wait until I can pick mine up now.
