Thanks SalsaLover. I think it looks even better now, with 30mm tires and less fender gap:

If I was forced to have only one bike instead of seven, it would be this: Road bike, cross bike, touring bike, or trail-capable monster crosser, fixed, ss or gears... during summer and winter.

My my eddy merckx mx leader i had but luck buying a groupset for this bike so i stripped my colnago extreme power. I replaced to original fork with this columbus fork and it might the bike slightly less lazy
I ridden a fair bitt with the original fork loved but i wished it would be less of a 'steamroller' with the new fork it is a lot closser to the colnago except its a lot more forgiving and best of all there is a lot of fun smoking your mates uphill on this machine when there ridding their 6. Something kg bikes !(;Image

if it's the same as the one I managed to source from SBC for a friend several years ago it'll be Columbus Ultrafoco. Very light, 1400g iirc.

You replaced the original fork with a carbon one on an MX-leader? Seriously? At least get the Columbus carbon fork painted to match!

I've been commuting on steel. This has turned out to be my go-to bike. I cannot remember a road bike I've enjoyed more in the last 20 years.
