There is a "mountain" in Florida. Hard to believe in a place where Disney's Space Mountain theme park ride is the third highest mountain in the state. Sugarloaf Mountain they call it--more of a glorified speed-bump me thinks... :D But then, just as you make the turn off County Road 561 onto Sugarloaf Mountain Road, you suddenly realize why they invented compact cranks and lightweight wheels. 8% grade, topping out at 15% for just over one relentless kilometer. Certainly not Lo Stelvio, but never-the-less, on my sixth lap I decided the most recent upgrades to the Colnago dream-build, dubbed "Il Generatore," were worth every penny. Lightweight Standard III C 190 Clinchers and a Super Record 11 Compact crankset have taken the ride from great…to off the charts. Two more contemplated upgrades: Gravitas brakeset and LOOK Keo Blade pedals.

She was built with the goal of perfect harmony between reliability, performance, aesthetics and weight (and of course, cost/benefit, to a certain extent). Here are a few images and the latest spec sheet, she currently stands at 6781 grams or 14.95 pounds.

Frame Set: Colnago Cristallo SE1 (54cm Sloping)
Wheels: Lightweight Standard III C (190 Clinchers)
Tires: Continental Grand Prix 4000s (Black Chili Compound)
Pedals: Look KEO 2 Max
Handlebars and Stem: FSA Plasma Full Carbon (42x120, Carbon Bar Ends)
Headset and Spacers: FSA Orbit Pro Ceramic Revolution (Carbon Spacers 30mm)
Brake/Shift Lever Set: Campagnolo Super Record 11
Brake Calipers: Campagnolo Super Record 11 (SwissStop Race Pro Lightweight Edition Pads)
Crank Set: Campagnolo Super Record 11 Ultra-Torque CULT (Compact 172.5, 50/34)
Bottom Bracket Cups: Campagnolo Super Record 11 (Italian)
Front Derailleur: Campagnolo Super Record 11
Rear Derailleur: Campagnolo Super Record 11
Sprocket Cassette: Campagnolo Super Record 11 (12-25)

Well, thank you all :). She flys like the wind and would make Ivan Basso proud on the climbs. It's been a privilege building, and a blast riding this beauty.

Not much more I could do here in terms of upgrades. I love this frame, but at 1440 grams, I've decided the only part of this package that could improve things further...is a lighter Colnago frame. Trading up from a 360 Modena, to a Ferrari 458 Italia...stay tuned.

Beautiful bike. I hear you on the compact cranks too. My coach is trying to convince me to give mine up but I'm frightened of the hills without them now....... :lol:
