I'm new here, but used to race in the 90's

Anyway, I just had a chance to take a decent photo of my latest build! This is my 2010 Colnago EPS with Campagnolo Super Record 12 speed. Also on Campagnolo WTO Bora 60s! Complete build with speedplay pedals, Cages and Wahoo Bolt is 7.5kg!

I’m curious about this too. I don’t have any experience with the new 26mm wide WTO’s but I would think that with that frame (and particularly underneath the fork crown) that clincher tire selection would be critical. I know that the old Conti 4000sii on a Neutron rim (15mm internal width) is too tight (for me), but if you could fit some 24mm Specialized Turbo Cotton on those rims in that frame that would be an awesome combo I think.

It looks like he's on Corsa's, which in my experience usually measure out pretty close to the stated size, but I think those wheels are a little wide, so they might be a touch bigger than normal. I'm guessing they're 23's.

I hate to shit on this but it's not to my taste. No question a very nice frame and great components, but are they aesthetically compatible? Certainly this is not a bad looking build, but I think this frame would look better with shallower wheels with less modern graphics. IMO the previous generation of crankset would also be more complimentary to the overall look. And the handle bar... that frame colourway is very busy and to throw in an integrated bar with a a white stem and the competing FSA logo...it's just too much. A bit jarring and confusing to the eye.

In terms of the wheels, I think that's all person preference. I know that some people dont like the look of deeper wheels on anything other than an aero bike, but I don't mind it. I think the wheels look fine. Ican see your point with the crankset. I'm not a huge fan of the latest look of Campy cranks, so I'll give you that one. I have to totally disagree with you on the stem/handlebar though. I think that the white of the stem and the blue bar tape goes perfectly with the graphics of the top tube and the changes in color. The great part about all of this, is that the argument is pointless... it his bike and he can set it up exactly as he wants, regardless of what you or I argue about.
