My Craigslist find as its transforms.

I been thinking of one of these for a while now, and just could not pass up this deal.

As I got it ......

Image

Adjusted the stem and bars just cause I could not stand looking at them

Also wanted to see what these tubular wheels would look like .... I'm hating this fork.

Image

UPDATED BELOW as of 7/28/16 - 7.9kg / 17.4 Lbs (Swapped out some parts from my inventory)

Image


More changes - New Cages, Headset, an all black stem and just a replica fork for now but it sure looks better .

Image

Frame - Colnago Master X-Light - 56
Fork - Profile Design BDC Bladed Carbon Fork
Headset / Cap / Bolt
Seatpost - American Classic 27.2
Saddle - Selle Italia SLR
Shifter / Brake Levers - Dura Ace 7700
Front Derailleur - Dura Ace 7700
Rear Derailleur - Dura Ace 7700
Crankset - Dura Ace 25th anniversary
Brakes - Dura Ace 25th anniversary
Pedals - Speedplay Ti
Bottom Bracket -
Handlebars - Cheep Alloy
Stem - 3T Pro
Cassette - Dura Ace 7700
Chain - Dura Ace 7700
Wheels - Mavic Helium
Skewers -
Tires - Ultra Sport
Cages - Cheep Alloy



Planing a few changes but would love some input as this is my 1st Classic bike.

Want to change ....
- Forks - I prefer the look of the Precisa Chrome Steel, but maybe Carbon Flash or Star is good also
- Handel bars, Stem and Seat post - Polished or Black (Carbon) not sure yet
- Wheels - I don't like the Red, I may try my older Carbon tubular wheels to see how they look.
- Saddle / Bar Tape - What brand style and color ???

Looking for input .... Thx

Hi KarlC,

Nice choice!. Currently it looks pretty average with all the red and high rise stem.

I think your planned changes are on the right track and will bring the best out of the Master frame.

Forks - I agree, precisa chrome will look a lot better, the carbon colnago forks are nice too if you run a carbon groupset and have other carbon parts otherwise it will look out of place IMO.
Handle bars, stem and post - if you keep the Shimano polished groupset then I'd say go for polished in this area to keep it consistent.
Wheels - I think these will look nice depending on what they are and the branding on them
Saddle/bar tape - chose the saddle that is most comfortable for you and then get bar tape to match.

This is my version of a Master X-Light in PR82 to give you some idea's

@KarlC
I agree. Fork, bars, stem (and seatpost) need to go. Before buying new wheels you may just replace the rims if the hubs are good (Shimano?). I also think that Arione is not a good match for such a frame.
You may check my master x-light which has a carbon flash fork and alloy parts.

I pretty much echo @Kgt's comments in his post above but I'd for sure go with the Chromed Precisa fork. The Flash fork looks good on @Kgt's bike because it's black and matches his predominantly black frame. But on yours it would just look like an aftermarket fork. So stick wth the chromed Precisa if you can find one.

Im thinking the same, I can get a used Colnago Flash Fork for $150. I like the said to be better Carbon ride and weight but I don't think it will look as good as a Chromed Precisa fork.

So far my best option for a Chromed Precisa fork that I have seen is $366 here .....

Oh, and for wheels I really think the rims should be low profile (but not red) and nice classic stainless steel (but not black) spokes.

Thats a great classic look for sure, but something about a Classic steel tube frame with deep carbon wheels really makes me drool.
