@Damjan, I know you think your bike is maybe too big for you but your hoods are already pretty high on the bar so unless you you want to get significantly lower I think it looks just fine, great in fact. But agree it might look better if you remove the decals off the wheel.

@jorgl, thats not a stem you can buy right? It must be made out of a piece of Colnago top tupe or downtube and welded to a steel quill? Very interesting. And I'm not a fan of "bling" cables, but your setup is subtley pleasing to my eye. Now let's see the whole bike. Looks like Colnago paint, but with the heart on the lug I'm almost thinking it's a DeRosa of some sort? Doesn't look like a Colnago lug to me. But the paint looks Colnago. Tell us more.

Nice... and the stem? Is that an original too? Never seen one like that. Nice as well.

Saw the stem 3 weeks ago on ebay. My bid was the only one :D

Never seen one before and didn't find any information about it.

Thanks Cal! ;)
I was looking at the new bikes too much. Where the seatpost are long out of the frame :D
Really love it now with shallow bars! Will remowe decals soon.... its actually not easy... with the hair dryer and the rim gets very hot!!

Just glued them on tonight so I have to wait until tomorrow to take a test ride... But I have a feeling that the combination of titanium + Hyperon + Veloflex is going to be quite smooooooth.... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: It's going to be interesting to compare it to my steel bike with Roubaix tires too but on Reflex rims.

Wow, some nice Colnagos these last few pages; Eurperg's classic, Mak's C50, Soul's Mapei, and Rumsas' C40...all beautiful. It would be nice to see some of these bikes together in one venue.

My Colnago Lux Dream, built it as an exact all metal duplicate of my C50 and to make it my rain/bad weather bike.

But it is too pretty to trash it in the rain. :)
