I think it needs a carbon fork given the approach - especially with the Berk combo.

I also think the red Campag logos need colour-coding, but with a better gold than you've used on the ring around the UT hole on the crank.

Please don't do a carbon fork :frightened: . Keep it just the way it is: perfect!

Love the frame. Cool what you've done with berks saddle but I still have a tough time with the "solid state" of it all, with zero room for adjustment. But still very nice. Can't help thinking some nice classic spoked low profile rims would suit this bike better. And as others have said, NEVER replace that fork with a carbon one on that bike.

@BikeTart,
Definitely no intention to replace the Colnago Precisa steel fork with a carbon fork.
The Precisa fork itself is an essential "module" for this particular built.

@anquetil
good idea, I guess I forgot to mention that do accept sponsors.. :lol:

Cheers!

@Calnago

Colnago Precisa steel fork will remain as it is.
Berk's carbon saddle-post combo is among the highlites for this built, retaining the Retro-Modern feel to it.
The SLR C64 saddle shape seems to fit me well enough, therefore zero complains from me.
Combo is made with a 75deg seat angle with 25mm setback.

I have an alternative on the way, found a NOS WR Compositi - Colnago seatpost in 27.2mm, and a SLR C64 saddle just in case an adjustment is needed.

As for a low profile wheelset, the built does look particularly good in Campagnolo Hyperon. Understated, with a touch of Retro-Modern.
Pics are not ready though due to cloudy weather.
