It will be nice bike for sure! What I like the most is that it is not slooping :lol: :lol: :lol:

What wheels will you put on :?: Cosmics Pro without stickers would be nice 8)

That is tight pro bro.
The saddle, post, cages, man you nailed it.
I actually like the curve to those bars too.
Whats the deal with the wheels?

The bartape is still missing :wink:
Still haven`t ridden it yet... Loctite hasn`t dried yet...
So the setback and bar position will maybe change a litlle...
At least 1 cm of spacers will be removed (if so ... 1,5 cm`s stay).
And some other litlle things...

Thanks man!
This is the Bontrager Race Lite VR alu bar, 42 cm (c-c) ... 233 gr. :)
As for the wheels... this will be the first time for me, to actually ride tubs... :D So the report will follow :)

This pic was made with a cell phone, so some better pics will follow in the next days ...

Might want to do a search on here for "Loctite" and Campagnolo. You'll find reference to horror stories about Loctite in the BB threads.

Edit- after re-reading a lot of the posts about this ( since I'm about to install my UT BB as well ), it seems there is still some debate about this. Maybe I'll resurrect one of the old threads instead of spoiling your intro thread.

I must say that is one gorgeous c50, but give it a credit and take some dignified photos, it deserves them 8)

Well, I think some people have used blue instead of the proper 222 and that's caused the problems. There seems to be plenty of people who have used the purple low-strength without problems getting them out. So I guess my memory was perhaps skewed.

Anyway, I'm going out to find some 222 myself right now per the recommended instructions. Sorry to scare you.

No problem :)

I just hope that the mechanic put in the 222 Loctite ;)

Very very nice. The post/saddle combo is great.

Are you using that 70 gram lead brick of a Colnago fork expander?
