This amiazing build only misses one thing: Tubulars tires with tan-sidewalls! Would look so perfect on your classy black/white Colnago with traditional geometry!

Bike came out great. FWIW I have found the finish ultra durable to date.

Great bike. I just love mine - the best bike I have ever owned. I have to get round to posting a pic but I'm too busy riding it!

Very nice rico. My size too. Not crazy about matte black but that's personal taste. Lol, your comment on Kingston. I use to ride through there on the weekends, out the backside of Richmond Park on my way out to the west. Lived in W London and yeah, on a C40 which tells you it was a while ago. Where did you buy the frame and kit?

Boneman - why does your name bring images of a blue Tecnos to mind...?

All bought at Sigma, who have been my excellent LBS for the past ten years and from whom I bought my first Colnago...

Lol! Left London early 2005 for Shanghai and now Singapore since late 2009. Tecno's in a garage in Massachusetts, probably corroding away by the sea shore. C40 in Stateside storage, they wanted $2,000USD to take it out of storage and ship it. I didn't bring it to Shanghai

I thought it might be Sigma. You had the C50 before? One of the red schemes?

Bike looks amazing rico!
Not a single component out of place!

Really enjoyed reading about your write up on the other topic in regards to its differences between your 595.
I have only had my 595 for a month and LOVE IT, but in regards to other frames I was considering, the EPS was certainly one of them.
My mentality is that when your getting to this upper echelon of pro peloton frames, 'all' of them are obviously there for a reason, they all will have their own characteristics and advantages, but they are all the elite of their respective makers. As such my decision came down to price, as most of the frames I was looking at were going to fit (EPS, CentoUno, King 3).

Again congrats on a truly awesome bike! Enjoy it which we all know you will!
