So very happy to be part of the Colnago club, first italian bike and really my first "proper" bike after riding 3 seasons on my starter Trek 2.1 alpha.

Lovely build including Campy Record, Zipp 404s, Zipp carbon stem / handlebars coming in at around 7.1kg - the goal will be to make small upgrades to end up around 6.8kg or so....

day 1...needed some freshening up...the Zipp Sprint stem was out of place:

Welcome to the forum and a very beautiful bike and deserving of some nicer outdoor shots.

Any further plans to improve or lighten this beauty?

Hello Chefczyk, wellcome along & nice looking C50 you have there!

Definitely need better pics. from outside please :-)

I'm guessing it's a .......... 55cm frame size?

Very nice, probably my favorite C50 colour scheme.

However the stem is simply incorrect.

thanks all! Bike is a 55cm and will properly be ridden outside. Plan is to replace the stem soon - I hate how bulky it is for now.

Looks nice, seat is quite forward though. Some nice outdoor shots would be great.
