Finally finished my dream bike build. I saw this colour a while ago and really liked it...its a bit different and i have never seen one on the road which makes it even more appealing to me. The official colour is called "Nato Green" but that sounds a bit wankish so when people will ask what colour it is, i will just say green.

Colnago C59 54s
Campy SR group
Corima Aero wheels with DT 240 hubs and DT Swiss aerolite spokes
Fizik saddle
Vittoria Corsa clincher
Deda Presa Bars and Deda Stem

Weight with Corima's 6.8kg and with Mavic Rsys 6.6kg. The difference between the two wheel sets is a bit surprising. I thought that there would be a bigger weight difference. Unless its my crappy scales

I have not taken it for a ride yet as i have just discovered small cracks in my stem and i dont want it to give out on me. So i am ordering another stem (perhaps a controversial choice for some on WW) which i think will look great. Once its here i will ride the wheels of it. Hope you guys like it

Small cracks are where the bolts go in. After a bit of research i found out the problem with this particular stem has happened in the past and there was a recall when they were first released.

Great!

How ever I think you need a longer stem according to the saddle position... ;)

I just saw this frame color when I was browsing eBay yesterday. He claimed that there are only 2 in the US, I wonder how many are worldwide? Awesome bike, I love the color.

Bravo, I love that scheme! So different yet so colnago. The fiat grey was also a looker from the same year they did the green. Would love to see a pair of tan sidewalls and a deda 100 stem but otherwise a very nice build.
