New Campagnolo Record groupset.
Cranks 2014 - IMO looks better on this kind of bike.

Agree with the call on the cranks.
7.2kg is VERY respectable for a classic steel frame
Looking forward to the finish pics

Crank looks OK ( did same thing : all'15 except '14 crank ) , but wheelset is... destroying . Just doesn't fit. Not at all. To "heavy" visually for that frame.

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)

anquetil,
Looking good, that 2014 crankset is a classic IMHO.
Wheelset is all fine as well.
Btw what size is this frame? From the picture it looks like a 52 or 53?

Cheers

I don't like the ritchey stem-bars and I agree gipfelsurm or hyperon would look better.

I would only change stem/bar, otherwise pretty nice!

Completed.
Better photos on Thursday at my first ride.
Few grams under 7 kg, thanks to ultralight Berk seatpost combo.

Mmmm, Saronni. I think it looks really good, but perhaps another stem?

i'm a big fan of this. looks really good. i can see how the black elements might be seen by some to be a tad thick on it but i like it and think it is a beautiful contrast with the thinner than modern tubes. i want to hear how it rides but.

also very interested in position given what on face value appears to be a very minimal head tube.

Hi
Ride is veeeery comfortable and stable especialy on descents.
No difference in speed vs Pinarelo Dogma F8, i think because of the same wheels - far most important part of the bike.
Drop is only 9 cm and is still enought comfort.
Yesterday i put on Brooks Cambium C 15 saddle and switch stem for - 6 degree, but i will change back in Berk seatpost combo only stem will be black with - 6 degree angle. Drop is than 7 cm.

In terms of looks I think it is more classy.
