This should have been built by now but as anyone who has seen my post in the Road section will know I've hit a snag with an old brake nut being stuck solid in the rear bridge. My dad used to be a mechanic so is good at these sorts of things and we have an idea how me might get it out. In the mean time please see below an interim picture and build list. I'll add more pics and the weight once I get it built.
The frame has a few signs of use and wear so the plan is to ride it in 2013 then next Winter I'm going to have it stripped and redone to look good as new. Just need to decide what scheme I want for it in the mean time.
Colnago C50 51S
SRAM Force Groupset. I don't like Campagnolo but have removed all logos from the SRAM out of respect!
Planet X Brakes
Jagwire Racer Cables
Lightweight Standard II with Vittoria Evo Corsa CX and Planet X Carbon / Ti skewers
3T Dorico Ltd
3T ARX Ltd 110mm
3T Ergonova Ltd
Token X Wing Saddle (graphics removed)
Look Keo Classic
2 x Planet X Bottle Cages

Care to elaborate on this? I've red that sentence a dozen times now and I do not understand what you mean

I agree on the stem. Cool to see you are going with something else than Campy on a Nago .

Hey, it's just a really nice bike that its owner should love to ride. That's the real purpose of any good bike.
Those tubs are relatively new so may consider some tan sidewalls but only when they need replacing.
The bars are just what I had but I do like the flattened tops for climbing so I'll be keeping them. They will only be taped up to the hoods so will stand out a bit but at least they match the stem and seatpost.
I've had a gold chain on previous black builds but for some reason decided that I thought silver would look better on this?
Still battling on trying to get this bolt out at the minute!!!
As mentioned earlier I'm thinking of having the frame refinished at the end of the year. Can't decide whether to just go for something similar, or, as PR99 is my favourite Colnago colour scheme, have it sprayed white and try to recreate that. Any thoughts? I'm also thinking of giving Campagnolo a go and move the SRAM over to a bad weather bike.
