I had a Cervelo S2 with a few weenie parts and it was great but I found it a little soulless. I've always hankered after a lugged, standard geometry Colnago so when I found this frame/groupset I had to have it.
It's about 1kg heavier but I don't care as it rides like a dream and makes me smile like a fool permanently when I'm on it!

Frame - Colnago C50 size 58cm NS03
Fork - Colnago Star
Group - Chorus 10 (with Record Skellington brake calipers and Recon cassette(118g!))
Wheels - Guess!
Tyres - Vittoria Corsa Evo CXII 320TPI
Skewers - Planet X carbon ti (40g)
Bars - Deda Newton Shallow with Colnago Tape
Stem - FSA OS 99 CSI
Seatpost - FSA K-Force 27.w, 32mm setback (yes, despite how it looks in the photo it is needed!) and Use shim.
Saddle - Fizik Aliante Carbon
Bockle cages - Elite Moro d'Elite
Pedals - Look Keo Carbon
Chain - KMC X10SL

Dude ..., that is one schweeetttt sled !!!

Only tiny quibble, is I think it would look better with a -17 degree stem on it, but only if you could find one in black, red and white, like you already have.

bTW, where were those photies taken? I want to move there.

I completely agree about the stem, the only one suitable would be a 3T -17 but I love the look of the FSA (and it fits me perfect as it is.) FSA don't do an OS99 CSI in -17 :(
The -17 would look great so the level top tube would flow into the 'level' stem...

I live in Cheshire, England. It's gorgeous out there today!

Love the shape of those particular bars, they suit me perfectly, on the Cervelo I had Fsa k force carbon compacts which I liked but not as much as these Dedas. The FSAs are now on my winter bike.

Great bike captured with great pictures.....like the stem, hate the seatpost (but that's just me)

as an EP owner I know what you mean about connection with the bike.
