Thanks, I like how the Power2Max matches the frame and other components. Added weight over Record 53/39 crankset was ~328 grams.

I think the B.O.R. cranks are a neutral and understated choice with Campagnolo drivetrain. The S-type Campagnolo version would have been nicer and lighter, but it's not even shipping yet.

@Eurperg: that is SO nice! My favorite 54s (I think) I've ever seen. Everything is just so perfectly matched or perfectly complementary. For me it's also the little details like your little club/team sticker on the seattube. Stem/bar choice... with that frame... Could not think of a better combo. Which blue pads are you using and how do you find them on your Hyperons compared to the red Campy pads? You're right about needing to bring down the computer mount but an easy fix. Also, I don't know what B.O.R. is?

Calnago, they're Reynolds blue pads, and I think they squeal less and are a little bit more powerful than the Campagnolo pads I have. They're not red though, just black but labelled "Hyperon". Must be very old...

For B.O.R. cranks see http://bor-germany.de. They're similar to Tune Smart Foot, if not identical. Here's a better pic:

I haven't found any alternative mounts compatible with O-Synce Navi2Coach... I think I must modify the original somehow.

@Salsa, Power2Max Campagnolo version is not available yet, starts shipping in may... SRM of course has their Campagnolo version, but I never have understood what it offers more for its price, so it was not an option.

I'm afraid I disagree. In fact, that's one of the most hideous Colnagos I've ever seen. Spacers, saddle, wheels, lights. It's just vile. :shock:

Sorry!

yes I have to agree, that is hideous, specially those awful wheels. I quite like the colourscheme of the frame though.

the spacers could get a "pass", but the positioning of the computer mount, saddle and wheels ruin what otherwise would be a beautiful bike.... the lights are removable anyway

The Ergos are positioned too low.

yes, wheels must go. put campy boras on them or lw's, and it will look the part.
