Ohhhh yehhhhhh. Watching this. First thought - white stem, black bar tape...but hard to tell until it's actually built up.

Btw, traditional geo: so much win.

That's a great amp!

A great frame too.

Not so great choice of "Grouppo" though.

Sweet tube fender! Bassman?

I'm feeling the build. Always though boutique components match DA better than campy

why the hell not shimano are streets ahead of campag in ideas and quality in my view

and why the hell should we put a specific group on said frame how many times have we heard this also seen chain drop/jam

or mech probs from campag trashing this frame will make anyone cry like a 3 year old girl.

Spare us, please.

Coming in to an 'Intro' thread with posts like this is the equivalent of being invited to a party and moaning that you don't like their choice of birthday cake.

Height of rudeness.

Exactly. People can be so childish about this and I'm fed up with it.

Chillax! People! That's ok...about the grouppo comments. Doesn't bother me, honestly, would have liked the campy eps but for 2 main reasons:

1) that battery is really an eyesore and when the internal comes out I would have to consider switching

2) my piñayellow is on di2 too so for me to swap wheels would be cost effective?

So thinking about the PRO stealth EVo integrated bars what do y'all think? Still can't get a consensus on white or black cockpit though!

Owning a colnago has always been a dream! Looking forward to this build!

Next up a TT bike! And a MTB!

Hey Bely ! no rudeness meant....

it's only that as you are wishing to call it "Gruppo" I understood you are looking for some italianità on your C59 ;)

build it as you like and play some mean blues, funk or soul on that Deluxe !
