Kind of stumbled over this beautiful frame while looking for a new secondary bike besides my C60. After selling my former secondary bike, a Supersix, the initial plan was to replace it with an older Colnago lugged Carbon model, preferably Extreme Power or Extreme C. Since it's not that easy to get your hands on one of these in the size I needed, I extended the search for a steel model - to keep things short, this is the result and I want to share it with you
I have pretty much all parts together now and currently building up the bike for the new season. Due to my weak spot for steel bikes mixed up with modern components, this is exactly what I'm gonna do here. However my goal is to keep the classic look and give the frame the attention it deserves. Since it's off season here and everything is covered in snow, crappy cellphone shots from inside is all I can offer to you right now - will get better pictures from outside when it gets more springlike.
For now a list of parts that will go on the bike and a first shot of the frame itself with King SV threaded headset already installed:Groupset:
Campagnolo Chorus 11 from 2011 - just can't do anything with the current 4-arm Crank and the bulky rear derailleurSeatpost and Stem:
Deda Superleggero - imo both go very well with the thin steel tubesHandlebar:
Fizik Cyrano R1Headset:
Chris King 2nut SVSaddle:
Selle Italia SLR FlowWheels:
Campagnolo Zonda C17 with Challenge Strada Open Pro tires - tan sidewalls Pedals:
most likely Look Blade Bottle Cages:
yet have to decide Arundel Mandibles or Arundel Stainless
That's it for now, more to come!
