Zander: You need change that handlebar. Sure it's Italian but with one of the most beautiful bikes and paintjobs it needs a classy handlebar.

Before I got the bike I thought I will change handlebar right away. But it has grown on me and it is very very comfortable to ride. Actually I'm wondering why there is no more this type of handlebars :) That flat area behind shifters is so nice in long rides. So let's see. Can you recommend any good option?

I like the bars! Goes well with the groupset.

Try to get the K-sword stem als. Maybe also K-sword seatpost ;)

I haven't been able to ride Colnago for a while because it is winter here. I have been riding with my winter/cyclocross bike.

I think I need a little more drop for Colnago. I put cheap -17 120mm stem to test how it looks. I can test drive it maybe after 5 months :cry:

How would it look if I paint the stem same white color as the frame? I tried with photoshop but I'm not too good at it :lol:

You should do it. Get the white Deda zero 100.

I thought that I could paint the stem. From car paint shop I could get the same color as the paint on the frame.

Matching paint would look great. In that case, I would also consider getting a Superleggero for paint as its thinner body would match the EP even better IMO. It also has a short stack height which will lower your drop by a small amount.

I'm doing complete spring maintenance for my bike. I noticed there is clicking noise coming from bottom bracket. It was quiet when riding last time about 6 months ago. Crankset is Campagnolo Super Record Ultra Torque 11s Titanium and cups are Italian I think. There is no retaining clip at all installed.

I'm going to remove crankset tonight to check if the bearings are dry or is there some dirt. Is there any problem if I install it without retaining clip? Any tips to get it quiet are appreciated!
