I decided it finally and ordered end of march my Colnago Master 30th Anniversary on AD10.
I decided to go with Mike at Maestro and he will set me up with a threaded fork so I will build it using a Cinelli 1A Quill Stem and Giro D'Italia Bars.
I have a full Silver Centaur 10 UT/US groupset for this build plus a set of Chorus/Blue OP wheels, and a set of Record 9Sp hubs laced to GP4s...
Alternatively I have a full NOS 2009 Record 11 group in its boxes that I could also use for a more modern look.
The waiting time is some 10-12 weeks, I will keep you updated in this thread, and the evolution of the build
The Dream is not bad, compared to other Aluminum frames, it is quite comfortable and the geometry is good, the same as all other traditional Colnagos, but indeed for longer rides you start to feel the stiffness of Aluminium it on the saddle
The goal with this Master is to have a exact duplicate of my C50 but on a full metal bike.....

- Campagnolo Record threaded headset
- Cinelli Giro d'Italia 42cm
- Cinelli 1A 120mm
- Cinelli Kaleidoscope handlebar tape
- Brooks Swift Titanium
The frame will probably arrive in another month or so.

I missed a deal on a full Chorus 10 in silver, but IMHO 2010 Ultra Centaur is as good as 2002 Chorus.
We'll see I will build it full silver centaur first.
I also have a tubular set, silver record 9speed era hubs on GP4s that I'll setup with Veloflex Roubaix....
For the moment just wait for Mike's email
Alternatively I would only use the white SLK that is mounted on the Dream, my @ss loves that saddle too.
the Regals, Rolls etc have never appealed to me.
Just find one in any condition and get it refinished by Superbeau to match the AD10 color
Brooks would be fine on a 30-60's bike
the goal is to have a high end, special steel Colnago and build it as close as possible to her sister my C50, and like so enjoy the ride characteristics of steel.
If the goal was to have a vintage bike, there are many on the net, with full vintage pantographed components and vintage saddles, that I could buy for less than the cost of the frame.
like this one for example, only 1550 EUR.

What most of us try to say is that another saddle would better match your frame.
Brooks is a great, classic saddle but it "belongs" to another era in a way: '60s and '70s, Reynolds 531 frames etc. etc..
The Colnago master is the symbol of the "modern" italian steel bike of the '80s. Columbus tubesets, full campagnologroupsets, italian saddles.
and it seems to like the SLK so probably the White SLK that is now on the dream will be the one.... I will try the Swift Titanium first though.
I did build a neo-retro bike for a nephew that was setup on Chorus 9 Speed with Racing Triple and a Brooks B17 and it looked great, here a pic with my Record/GP4 tubulars, he did get it on a set of clinchers
those wheels will go to my Master and I guess the Swift Titanium will be nice to ride.
my @ss likes a lot the Brooks conquest on my commuter, so it has already a reference about it
