Look565w, this is going to be a lustworthy bike.. Had I not picked up my ST01 C60, I would be angry at you for picking up this rare beauty.. Buuuuuut, the EP is one nice bike.. Are you running a Chris King headset? Can't make out the brand by looking at your picture.

Thanks Jimaizumi, I love your ST01 too, sub 6kg Colnagos are rare :thumbup:

Head set is Chris King - Black Sotto Voce 1-1/8 inch, have it on my Lynskey too :-)

Cheers

Thanks for the pic, MJB.

Your EP looks "mean" & ready for serious action :-) I like it very much!

What size is it? 55cm traditional?

Cheers


My EP is 56 traditional so 56cm c to c seat tube and 55cm c to c top tube.

Got it built up but just didn't get the weather & time to take some half decent photos, but it's ready now & will hopefully ride it tomorrow :-)

As shown it weights in at - 7104g / 15.66lb, not a weight weenie as expected but still extremely happy & excited about this EP!

Won’t say much as I’ve not been able to ride it yet due to wintery weather conditions.
The tubes is obviously much slenderer that my C60, but a very nice & classic proportion that I like, let the picture do the talking, hope you guys like it!

Oh, just to add that the Neutron wheels were a pain in the back side to mount the tyres on :-(

Cheers

So Italian. So good.

In my eyes, that's always been a classic Extreme Power color configuration.

Don't know if I would've done the touch-up paint, but I get it. The new hanger and headset say you're a cyclist that likes it "right."

Looks nice! Are those the actual cable and housing weights?

Thanks chaps for the kind words, I love this along with my C60! A black & a white bike, my desire have been fulfilled ........ for now anyway :-)

dj97223 - Yes, those are "actual" cable & housing weight, but it doesn't include the gear cables, as those were on the shifters already & was weight with that. It's a smallish frame, so I guess less cables :-)

Mike is a great guy & indeed a Colnago Maestro :-)

Today's maiden ride, I did a 188km ride today with my club, I can say that I am super happy with this EP, although the gears was a bit all over the place, need to get that sorted pronto :-(

Cheers
