Finally after 30 years of of lusting after a bike, I was able to purchase my unicorn, in my size, 54 traditional Colnago Master Mapei. This baby popped up on eBay, and I was able to get it. The bike came with record 10 titanium triple and a flash fork.
I have another Master Light Art Decor that I built up abut 6 months ago. This bike has silver Athena 11, record hubs and Mavic SUP rims, pista fork, Campagnolo seatpost, Cinelli stem and bars.
I also have a modern group 2016 Campagnolo Chorus with 2014 Campagnolo SR crankset and Campagnolo Zonda 17.
Here is my dilemma. Do I raid the Master Light Decor of the components and pista fork to put on the Master Mapei, and put the carbon groupset on the pink master, or build the Mapei up with the carbon groupset.
Thanks for the advice.
The Masters with the carbon fork always looks somehow off symmetrically. I would be interested to see someone paint one those Star Carbons to match the frame or at least white it out. It would probably bring the entire bike together.
And if you are planning some long mountain slogs, perhaps with a backpack, I would not be ditching the triple completely.
Nice Colnago collection there. Enjoy them both.
Spacers need to match the stem and be either all black or all chrome depending. I like the black cockpit, personally.
Yes, delogo the wheels.
I don't like the triple, but if you're actually going to ride the thing, it may be better than the alternatives. I don't ride my beautiful Technos much anymore because it has a 52/39. There are old style carbon Campy compacts that would look ok with that group but they're hard to come by. If you don't want or need a compact, then a period record crank, either alloy or carbon.
