Stunning. I love the attention to detail in the Nokons and the like. You didn't use the red in a black string though?

Nice build Samu!

And for once someone who knows how to mount a full carbon fork (you need a smal spacer on top to do it right and safe!).

Are u the same guy as the illustre Samu I. on this forum??

Yep, it´s snowing here and she can´t wait anymore to get test ride for bike!

No, I´m not Samu Ilonen...
After all I know him quite well and can say were are friends...

And we have had Nokon cables in four bikes an they are great cables.

And for that carbon fork...I really know that, only there is now two 5mm spacers above the stem. One too much ;)

:welcome: Samu, nice Colnago you build your wife! I like the red theme going on. Do you ride these in the snow as well? We sometimes ride roadbikes in the snow overhere, but ofcourse there isn't as much snow as in Finland :wink:

Yeah one spacer to much!

I suspect you will fine-tune this after your lady did ride the bike a few times and your know the hight of the steerer she prefers.

Very nice bike ....

Weight under UCI limit of course. But how much does it weigh?
