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.

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