A box! What's inside?
Gold, it's gold!
This build will take some time to finish as I'm buying parts whenever I find a bargain, but it shouldn't take more than 2-3 months. I already have some of the parts. Build list will be;
Campy SR mechanical (2015 except pre-2015 SR Ti cranks which I already bought)
Deda Superleggera 35 bars - Purchased
Deda 35 stem
Deda Superleggero RS seatpost - Purchased
Selle Italia Superflow L saddle - Purchased
Bora One 50 tubs - Already have them
Frame is a 56s in MHWH colour. I know Colnago police will shoot me down for choosing a sloping frame but I already have a classic geo bike and wanted to try something different. Also, sloping Colnago geometry suits me better and slope degree is not that extreme as other brands. With a bike in this size, it's even less pronounced. I'll update this thread as build progresses and whenever I can take better pictures in daylight.
Just another Colnago C60
Well I just have to beg to differ........... in my subjective world there is no such thing as just another one of these.......
............... and hey, if you are going to have a sloping frame then at least the Colnago sloping geometry is the most elegant sloping frame out there.
More quality pics of paintwork finish please! Some of us have to live vicariously............
Frame is heavyweight at 1295 gr (headset, derailleur hanger, seatpost clamp included) and fork is bulky at 414 gr uncut. I project total weight for completed bike will be around 7.3 kg. I'll be using some of the lightest off the shelf components and I think it's pointless to go with ultra light and ultra expensive components as it's very hard to build a real weight weenie bike without compromising something somewhere, be it my wallet or the bike itself.
