Hi to all - I am a new comer to weight weenies and thought i would share my recent purchase and the new machine that puts a smile on my face.

Fitted with my Zipp firecrest 404 Clinchers with built in powertap, however it will usually be mated with a set of Lightweight Standard III carbon clinchers which i am still waiting on (takes a while to get from Germany to Australia).

Love to hear comments / thoughts.

Hi,
very nice ride. I probably would give the white a little more contrast and change the bar tape with a black one and then a black saddle as well.
This is only my opinion but in the end it is your ride.
Thanks for sharing the picture.

Thanks - Already planning on changing out the tape for black (or maybe even white...). The silver just doesnt do it for me. Not sure about the saddle as yet - Will see what the Ltd Edtn Lightweights look like...More white!

Thanks Roobay - I think it was worth it and it puts a smile on my face every time i look at it or ride it. It's pretty much the only one in Australia and what initially drew me to it was the completely built in and hidden Di2 (including the controller/electronic adjuster which is built into the the top of the steerer tube). The battery is also built into the seat tube. No shift cables visible anywhere!

That is a great looking bike, love the clean integration of Di2 into the frame :thumbup: I would maybe switch to a black saddle and white bar tape, but that is just me nitpicking.

With that said, why anyone cares about anyone else's purchasing ability is still beyond me...

Very very nice. Pure class.

Did you not fancy getting the next size up and getting a negative rise stem to flatten the stem out to match the top tube?

Any different camera angles to see the full beauty?
Cheers

I will upload some further photos later today to show the detail. The stem is part of the bars which come with the frame (also Colnago branded) so there is no choice on angle.

That is very nice. I am sure the contrast of the colours looks a little clearer in person.
I love the looks of my white bike but cleaning it all the time is a PIA. My black Cervelo I cleaned twice a year whether it needed it or not, now I clean my white bike seems like every ride.
Be careful with the white seatpost. Painted posts slip which ruins the paint and carbon paste scours the paint. I just brought my saddle up after changing shoes and it looks like crap at the bottom of the seatpost.
Enjoy, she looks fast.

A few additional pics and thanks drchull for the seatpost advice. Colnago have actually agreed to repaint the seatpost because there is some raw carbon showing at the base due to me raising it slightly (i.e. the whole length of the seatpost wasn't painted originally).

One of a kind! Err, 1 of 59 to be exact. Close enough.

The novel Di2 integration is another one of a kind. Definitely cool to see frame builders taking it another step forward.

Congrats.
