Yes, I spent about 6 hours yesterday building her up, and then took her out for a quick virgin ride in the evening. The 11-speed stuff worked awesome and the bike felt very smooth on not-so-smooth countryside roads.

I will post good pics as soon as I have some spare time to take them...

Well well, here are some pics for all of you:

Already ordered / planned upgrades:

- 1cm longer stem (now 100mm, ridden 160km's told me to do this)
- Proper road pedals ( I know those Wellgos are a disgrace, sorry... but I'm a mountain biker... :D)
- Cutting the steerer

[missing pics removed]

Weight 8,34 kg as pictured. Not very WW, but hey, spring classics are won on a bike with similar weight, so it can't be that bad...
The saddle alone weighs 370 g but I'm not going to change it, because I think it's the best saddle that exists, period. :)

Total bike cost: ~2500€, which is the MSRP for the frame only...

Heh... :D I know theyre a love / hate affair, but I think they suit the frame exceptionally well... White text on black background, and even the typefaces are not so far from each other. ...But of course there have not been any pro teams using Colnago frames and Reynolds wheels, if that's the way you're looking at it blah blah...

And hey, it's just the stickers that separate the rims from KINLIN XR300, and I'm rather riding Reynolds!

Extremely beautifull bike I must say! Congratulations!!!! :thumbup:

I know why people would remowe the wheel decals.... because they are not from Campy, Mavic, etc.....
Before you maybe remowe them, try it in photoshop...

I think you c an have even longer stem....


Again, I love the look of the bike!!! :beerchug:

As suspected, this is beautiful. Sod the weight (and with the saddle I'm guessing you're not too worried about it anyway :mrgreen: )

Beautiful build. Great pictures. Gorgeous.

And while Frankie will consider banning me :wink: I have no issues with a heavy seat. An uncomfortable seat = no riding. Whatever works to keep you on the bike!

Great build and I'd go with the best saddle that fits your the best, not the lightest!

Thanks for all the compliments... :cool:

I had two glitches when installing the Chorus groupset:

1. The inner side of the Chorus cassette started grinding the Reynolds KT rear hub body when I tightened it all the way down. The cassette would not spin at all... I solved the problem by just rotating the cassette with hand, and let the cassette shave the paint and a bit aluminum off the hub shell... Tolerances seem to be very tight with this 11sp stuff!

2. Chorus brake bolt nuts are not long enough for the B-stays and Street fork. The instructions say that at least six threads must be overlapping, but even with the longest 24mm nut front and the second longest nut rear, there are only 3-4 threads overlapping... I didn't dare to tighten the nuts to 10Nm, so I ordered two extra-long 30mm problem solvers brake nuts to get rid of the issue. Anybody else have this issue?

Very nice bike. Good to see a new 2005 bike if you know what I mean.

Now with longer 11cm stem and Shimano PD-A600 SPD pedals (8,30 kg):

[missing pics removed]

I'm all legs and no torso, so the 11 cm stem is just fine. I'm going to try a white Regal Ti saddle, but if it's too much white I'll just keep it that way..

I have a fetish for black and white bikes, here's my other one (7,82 kg):
