So I've been toying with the idea of getting a Nago for a very long time, and to be honest the obvious factor of cost being the thing putting me off it. Top with that being 27 and just getting engaged so having bugger all money may have something to do with it.

Anyway, due to a rather fortunate set of events which would take too long to explain I have managed to get my hands on a 56S Colnago Frameset to replace my S Works Venge. I was a bit worried about sizing but turns out a 58CM Venge only has 2MM longer reach than the 56S Nago.

The build is pretty classic, full SuperRecord groupo mechanical, Fizik Antares saddle, R1 Fizik stem 110mm, Bora One's (couldn't stretch to the Ultra's!!). I will update with a full build including weights, but it seems to be around the 7Kg mark at the moment.

I'll update accordingly but for the moment I'll just be riding it, so far it has been an incredible ride. My only getting used to is the switch from Shimano to Campag. Campag seems much more precise and crisp, but also that little bit harder to actually push the shift/up-shift!

Update to how she currently sits:

If you're paying Royal Crescent rent I'm not surprised you have bugger all money!

8) Not quite, I live on the street behind and most certainly rent! Bath is insane for house prices but the riding round here is cracking. I enjoy seeing the GCN boys blasting around every now and again too, although they are all rapid!

How is everybody else finding Campag for the up shift? I'm using Campag low friction cables but still stiff, is this just a difference between Shimano and Campag?

i rode dura ace for 18 years till switching to Campy. Yes, the upshift on Campy requires a bit more force and it's lighter on Shimano. Some of this is the "brifter" feature on Shimano - you can use 2 or 3 fingers - whereas on Campy it's not part of the brake lever so you use 1 or 2 fingers.

Nevertheless, I find Campy to be more of a precise shift and once it's dialed in it stays that way. The dumping of cogs is awesome, too.

Your bike is wicked sweet.

Nice. That would be my size if I were to go with a sloping C60. What is your saddle height in that photo? I'm going to add all the basic fit dimensions to my build threads. There's always people who ask those questions.

My goodness, owning a bike like this at 27 will spoil you for life! Hope wedding plans are still on, but in any case you'll have a trusty partner in crime with this!
