Stunning Colnago, just beautiful. Would love to see some more pics of it!
And yes please do start a thread about the Specialized, looking forward to see the Berk stuff! What finish did you order the parts in?

Lastly, I work in a bike shop but that work area made me seriously envious haha..

I love the tool racking. I maybe have a similar collection, but it's all different makes, so it'd really annoy me if it put them all up. Maybe I should start afresh!

I wouldn't say the campy tool kit is a collectors item but they do seem harder to find in unused condition. I still need to locate the smaller freewheel tool kit to complete the set.

I will start a seperate thread for both the Colnago and the Specialized Allez with more pictures the next few days.

I already had a bunch of park tools when I started the collection and you can always seem to find sales on them. I will say the quality of some of the Park stuff is very bad, especially their hex wrenches. I'm thinking about getting some betas or those new Silca ones.

For the Berk stuff I did the matte UD finish to match the Arundel mandible cages. The srp is going to be 40cm wide with a 120 mm stem and I had Jure do thread holes on the bottom as I am going to put the new K-edge splayd garmin mount underneath the stem.

Like the bike storage concept. I am using the same in my garage (but without the mood lighting).

I am very envious of your Colnago X-light weight.....less than my C50's weight right now.....

The wall mount setup was definetly the most efficient way I could find to store a larger number of bikes and it does seem pretty rock solid. My nightmare is too wake up one night to all of my bikes crumpled together on the floor, but so far so good. Yeah the weight of the Nago is not too bad considering the only weenie part I have on it is the Berk saddle. Could definetly be 1kg lighter pretty easily.

Great looking bikes. Along with that Tool Bench. Well done. I bet nothing but stellar builds come out of that garage. Well done again.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. Tomorrow I am going to start a more detailed thread for the Colnago with more pictures. Let me know if you want more pictures or information about my bench and tool set up as well. It took a while to get everything set up just right on the tool wall so if I can make someone else's bench set up a little easier that would be great.

Here are a couple more pictures of my garage setup. Here is my compressor and airline set up for inflating tires and blowing off bikes as I clean them.

Compressed air is great for blowing old grease out of bearings too.

Where did the tool racking come from?
