So I finally finished the bike today and went out for a little maiden voyage Since my left knee is a bit chipped at the moment the ride was way too short but I already can tell the ride quality is just amazing!
Took one quick IPhone shot for you guys for now. More to come soon Image

Nice, was a long time coming. Congrats. As to saddle height and while we wait on the actual numbers... I'm gonna throw out a guess for fun and say it's in the 81-82cm range. And I'll go out on a limb and guess a saddle to bar drop of 10-11cm.

As a fellow colnago owner I say "well done"

As a fellow tall rider I say "proper build"

As a fellow colnago and tall guy I say "Bro, is your butt really that narrow? Be honest."

Very, very nice. The only thing that troubles me is the aforementioned logo cutoff on the seat post which didn't make it through my OCD filter.

Good eye!
I haven't noticed that. I had the same problem on my C50 back then.

Seatpost police: Approved! :thumbup: (edited)

Actually I might be wrong - earlier in the thread there's a close up photo which shows that it is in fact all visible courtesy of Deda's having repositioned it. My mistake and apologies to the OP.

First of all thanks for the compliments!
Right now the saddle height is 80 cm but I still do have some tolerance for adding 2 more cm on top. Saddle to bar drop is 10 cm. Pretty good guesses on both Calnago :wink:

@ ronderman: butt really is that narrow :lol:

@ mockenrue: no needs for apologies, if I would have used the older version of the seatpost the logos definitely would have been cut off. Right now the "Superleggero" logo ends just a few mm in front of the seat tube so it maybe looks like cut off when you give it a quick look

Will take some good quality pictures as soon as possible and also sum up the whole build process with more numbers and stuff.
