It has the syntace shim in there, the thomson one is too long. I'm probably going to put a cyrano stem on it when they come out. I tried a zero 100 but it was too bulky.

Nice, I always wanted one of those frames in black when I was a junior riding a Ribble. Personally I would go for some vintage rims as well, e.g. Mach CD2s, GEL330s or similar. Otherwise you've done a good job to use modern non-clashing parts. Unlike others I quite like the groupset, although 10 speed record would also be nice.

Sorry mate, in my eyes the parts just don't seem to work together. :?
Not knocking your choice.....it's a free country etc.

Don't see how the parts don't match, its polished metal and gloss black, if anything doesn't match a 30 year old frame its carbon just because its branded italian. The only other thing I considered was DA 25TH But I'm not paying twice as much for a group set that's half as good.

Not matching is about more than just finish in this case, my friend. That "polished metal and gloss black" is on a crankset with an unprecedented and peculiar looking 4 arm, asymmetrical chainring bolt pattern. The Italian branded carbon you speak of has kept the same look (chainring aesthetics, hidden 5th bolt, etc.) since the mid 1980s. Whether it's a C-Record crank from '86 or a Record UT crank from '14, it essentially has the same aesthetics, other than color.

Just sayin'...

Knew this was going to divide opinion, in the end its my bike and I like it. In the end that's what counts. Don't mind criticism but dont really need the patronising tone though "my friend". I've tried campagnolo it makes my hands hurt... Just sayin..

Calling you "my friend" was not meant to be patronizing; regardless of your taste, you're riding a beautiful Italian steel frame with modern components and I dig it.

The point of all this was not to tell you what to do with your bike. I hate when people on this forum do that and it's done all too often. It's just an opinion I hold that you could've used any other crankset (except Ultegra 6800), Campy or not, and it would probably better "match" the Master. 9000 is arguably the most "futuristic" looking crank on the market.

Enjoy your bike, and take some good photos!

Someone shows us his bike.
Someone else says: I don't like it for this and this reason.
The first one replies: I don't care what you think, it's mine and like it.

Why then presenting your bike in a forum? That is my question. Just ride it and be happy...

So if one build a really beautiful bicycle (taste varies, and that is beautiful) one should not show it?

LOCK UP ALL BEAUTY! :wink:

Screw what everyone else thinks, it's yours to be built how you want it :thumbup:

Personally I like it all except the Zipps, which are a bit shouty imo

A nod to old skool, whilst adding a modern hint; i'm quite sure that's what Mr C intended or he'd sell a module complete with bitd parts that didn't work...

If you wanted a proper retrobike, you'd have gone and bought a mexico :wink:

Agreed, I can see what you want to achieve there.
I just thought it was an unusual mix, but we all like different things right?.....That's what makes the world go round.
Don't think the rather naff wheels in the pic help TBH? Take some pics with some shallow rims on it NS........ 8)

Beautiful

But, what a shame to see it set-up with Shimano. It most certainly deserves Campagnolo.

I agree the 303's dont look right on it but I haven't got anything else right now. Well besides a pair of non matching Askiums that hold up my turbo bike. All my other wheels are disc

I think colnago masters have been equipped with shimano in the pro peleton more than they have campagnolo havent they? Going back as far as the Buckler team right up to Mapei
