Had the itch to build something new. So sold my Bianchi Oltre XR4 and put the proceeds towards a Colnago. Many of my friends swear by them and the extensive coverage here and feedback from people I trust in the industry put my mind at ease about the sticker shock. The new aero bikes launched this week have me appreciating the traditional design of this frame even more than I did before.

I am a campy diehard and when I decided to try disc (doubting this decision every day), H11 EPS was the obvious choice. I have pretty much everything selected except for the cockpit. I just received the MCFK stem and handlebar but the UD finish is too polished. Thinking of going to Deda Superleggera RS stem and handlebar which would match more closely and save me some moola. The wheels will take a few weeks so the actual build has been postponed until they arrive.

Looking forward to the final build. Will be stunning 8) Could you put that frame and fork on the scale before you build it?

Looking very good! But then I would say that because I have exactly the same coming! I have even gone for the MCFK bar and stem combo but your comments have me worried. Is the finish really that different?

Delorre - I will get it weighed this weekend

Magnum - great minds think alike. I wouldn’t say they are radically different. I noticed the c64 has more matte finish to it than the UD of the mcfk. I can be a bit neurotic. I’m sure it would look great with MCFK. I plan to check out the superleggera RS finish before making my decision

Returned the mcfk stuff opted for the Deda superleggera RS stuff for aesthetics.

Those will definitely match better than the MCFK. Going to look awesome.

Ok, that's nice. That stem looks like it was made for that frame. How heavy is it?

The Deda stem is around 100 grams. The mcfk was lighter but didn’t match and much more expensive

Why replace Mcfk by Deda? For Italian style?
