On another note, I actually like the white accents on stem/bars, which match nicely with other subtle white accents on seat and frame.
I actually went through 3 iterations of bar position before settling on this. The initial build had an 8mm spacer above the 3mm red "bling" spacer with a -17 degree 120mm stem. That gave me a 101mm saddle to handlebar drop. Proved to be a little too aggressive for me, so I took out the 8mm spacer, cut off the extra 8mm of steertube and replaced the 120mm -17 stem with a 120mm, -6 degree stem. That raised the bar enough but still felt like the position was wanting to push me back a bit. So, in the end I tried a 130mm, -6 degree rise (shown in pic above, kinda dark, sorry) which resulted in a saddle to handlebar drop of the current 88mm, which I'm really finding quite perfect. In the process I also increased the saddle setback by 4mm. Plenty aggressive, looks good, and handles great. The fine tuning has been the result of trial and error and lots of miles till you "get it right". You'll know when that is. Kind of have to be willing to try minor changes to get that perfect fit. And even then, the body is highly adaptable, to a point. I'll never sacrifice a good position to get a certain "look". But in this case, I think I've achieved both.
I generally like to keep the saddle to handlebar drop between 7 and 9cm.
The bartape needs to be changed for Deda carbon tape!
And the white line must be removed from the stem. I think I will only leave the "3T" on the top of it.
But before have to find out if I need 1 cm shorter stem.
bad pics, sorry
Its around 5-7 mm longer than before. But feels OK. Will try with 1 cm shorter stem anyway; so 110 mm. Yes, now is 120.
I dont like if the bar feels bulky. It must be thin and classic!
Playing a bit with colors. Seems to me that original is still the best
But i don't think white Colnago decals, it has to be yellow or nothing (maybe leaving the two red ssc decals) It's really hard to say
No matter what they are cool wheels. I hate all the high profile mavic's with alloy brake track, i wouldn't even train on those
Are you totally converted to shallow bars now?
You gave me an idea - the same as Mavic CCu with pro decals....
Heres another example that I dont like, but just to show that there are a lot of possibilities
I think this would be perfect!!
