Hey guys,

I got my brother hooked on cycling last year and now I got him convinced that Colnago is the way to go. I will have to build it for him though. Here is the frame...

Bike bike will have Campy Record set with 3T Rotundo Cockpit
I am going to see if will work with black Selle Italia SLR Carbonio saddle and black handle bar setup.

He will use his current Zonda wheels till next year..

Full build coming end of the month!!

Not sure I would recommend a bar with the drop that the Rotundo has for someone just getting into cycling.

Amazing frame though!

He may have just started, but he is strong and flexible. He's already done a lot of Pyranese, Alps climbs, with many 160k plus rides already. He is already a strong rider and he tested out my bike and he liked my rotundo set up. I think it's going to be pretty awesome set up for him. (or me,, we are similar in cycling dimensions)

That frame is so beautiful. My LBS has one in the store and I look at it everytime I'm there. "Fortunately" it's the wrong size :wink:

Looking forward to see the complete build.

Love the 150, but havent' really seen one built up - am concerned with black campy on it - I have the GBLT color, the one with blue and it just barely works and that's with all black SLR wheels.

Can't wait to see finished pics.

Here is one built up with black Campy, from my photoblog (I knew it would come in handy some day :))
