Hi fellow Weenies,
Finally my long wait is over and my new bikeframe was delivered at my local shop. (Thx to Claes Henrik at Oslo Sportslager!) It took almost 6 months since I ordered the bike and an endless amount of emails to Colnago to get it done.
... No one wants to read the boring stuff, lets get to the bike! Specs:Frame:

I finally weighed the bike and it came in at a nice 7,70kg! (16,9 lbs)
I should mention that I work at a bike shop that sells Trek, Campagnolo, Vredestein, Speedplay,...
The bike is more of an Modern Classic. With all the style of the old with the technology and practicality of the new.
Here come the pics!
Not the best pictures in the world but I just wanted to make some pictures of it as fast as possible! I know some people are going to give me a hard time because I used Bontrager components. Although I don't see the problem with that since their design and quality is often higher than most Italian brands. (Also Bontrager is cheaper and lighter) And at least their claimed weights were all correct. Try to get that from Deda, 3t or FSA...
(FSA makes some of the ugliest, least stiff and heavy components. In my humble opinion.) Also, I needed a -17 degree stem which is hard to find around here but my Trek dealer had them in stock. Yes the spacer stack is necessary because I wanted a 10cm drop. I have very long legs for my length (175cm with 86,5cm legs) and thus every bike is always a compromise. But at least the stem height would have been the same if I had used a quill stem. But I hate quill stems with an never ending passion! Yeah they look classy but are weak and old.
Let me know what you think!
