FYI, those ITM Big One stems tended to crush one inch carbon steerers,and were quickly replaced with ITM Millenium on team bikes. The 1" Star forks are hard to find, so I wouldn't want to see you wreck it.

New parts arrived.
First is the seatpost. i have been searching everywhere for a genuine Colnago seatpost, but without any luck.
I decided that the next best thing was a WR compositi.
And when it came to my door, i was actually very pleased with it.
Her it is

i would have liked a Selle San Marco concor saddle, but couldn't find the right one. I only like the old model with the two oval san marco logo's at the back. But it was also impossible to find anywhere.
So when this nice thing showed up, i bought it right away.
It's actually very light to.

As for stem/handlebar i have decided to try the old newton combo. I can always replace, if it is to beafy looking, and i probably will

Beautiful finish, Im seldom a fan of any carbon weave, but it works on this. even the stem and bar match well!

Very well done, beautiful lines, even though that 00F was one of the paintjobs I liked the least.

Kind of like a yellowish PR00 that wants to be an LX when she grows up :P

Anyhow it is a classic paintjob, I have seen some pictures of Mapei riders on that 00F at some point in time too.
