Thanks for the compliment guys.
Will post a picture of the bike with Campagnolo Hyperon wheelset next weekend.

I'm using the Black Silva Carbon Handlebar Tape.

This turned out really, really beautiful.
I had fears this would end up as a mutt, but I stand completely corrected.
You pulled it through and this is a stunning ride.
Well done, Maverick!

Usually, I am not a fan of Colnago's steel offering, but this one looks righteous. Well done :thumbup:

Maverick that is a beautifully executed ride. Really like the way you went about it with exceptional taste; I have no gripes whatsoever and even if I did I'd just keep them to myself as this is your baby - you spent the money so you get to do exactly what you like with it. It's no use throwing a tantrum if it isn't your bike eh?

Enjoy the ride!

@Rumsas,
You should get a Master, this thing rides as good as any carbon bike!
The handling is typical Colnago hallmark. Precise, stable and assuring.
I'm afraid this may end up being my main ride from now :lol:


Oh my god, i was afraid you would say that, now i have to get a steel bike.
Fantastic well done

GREAT WORK!

Looks aggressive on the Lightweights and will look like a modern classic on the Hyperons.

This is very clean built. Do you have any idea, if the cage change to more classic will be better ?

+1 on the cage.
Can you remove the wheel decals?
You need better tires as well. :wink:

@wshiong, kgt

Thanks for the comment.
Current cage is by BTP. Plain and simple, pretty light at 15gr a piece.
Anyway, feel free to suggest a classic cage if you have any in mind.

@kgt,
Tires are Conti Supersonic clincher.
Unfortunately no intention to remove the decals on the Hyperon Ultra :wink:

I suggest Veloflex clinchers. Around 190gr and a great ride. This bike deserves em. :)

maverick_1,

A chrome gold plated cage are nice.. this is just i think about, but i not sure when brand has it. :oops:

Do you think the pedals are slightly too large? it looks like blocking the beauty of the whole bike. What do you think if it pair with a black speedplay ? So people can focus more on the frame. :smartass:
