So I got al excited when I got an email from excel sports advertising their close out Colnago CLX frames, so I have a red one inbound:
I'm going to build it up with either chorus or record depending on what kind of deals I can swing. And I already have a set of 38mm carbon clinchers that will go on it.
But I'm having trouble with my choice in stem, bars, and grip tape. All the full builds of this bike have white tape which I'm not going to do for practical reasons. I want to stick with an "Italian" theme, I've looked at deda and they have some white/red parts that I thinking would work in their 35mm line, but I don't really need the stiffness of those and I'm afraid the size will look terrible...
What are your thoughts on kit, colors, brands etc... To finish off this build.
Not looking I to spend a ton of money, and I prefer a compact drop, this isn't my weight weenie bike, so I'm not too concerned about the absolute lightest stuff.
Thanks ahead of time! Double thanks for pictures!
