Wow. I think this is the first build I have seen which madfibrer wheels and a 63cm frame look really good :thumbup:

Stellar build! I'm always impressed when someone makes a large road bike look "proper" without compromising a good fit. Really great, but oh Lordy my eyes hurt from seeing the chain on the small ring :). No worries, your build makes up for it and all is forgiven. And do let us know what you think of those madfibers in terms of harshness and handling in crosswinds. But they do look good on this build!

That's a big frame :shock:

Congratulations on the new ride though! That's probably the best looking build I have seen with a 63cm frame :thumbup:

By the way, what is the drop from top of saddle to the top of your bars? I know I couldn't ride it, I'm just curious.

Beautifully done. Given your extraordinary attention to detail, I can probably get away with saying that the only thing I'd consider changing is the Matt finish on the stem - needs a gloss finish to compliment the bars and top tube...

My drop is 14cm. I'm a fairly flexible guy. Love the Colnago by the way, makes me want to get on Campy.

I realized that about the stem. I see a Zipp SL Speed stem in my future. I just have to weigh spending money on bike components vs. camera equipment…life is so tough

Usually large bikes look... ughm... different. But yours looks very balanced, I like it. Great job! :thumbup:

Deep wheels really help a giant frame look proportional.

your bike is gigantic! I have the same bike minus the wheels. Those weeks give it a very unique look!

Your Evo is a great looking bike, I just can't get in to the Mad Fiber wheels. Would love to see some pics with some Enve's of the same depth or even Zipp's.

I'd love to have a set of Enve Smart 6.7 tubulars. They would add nearly a pound to the weight but the unidirectional finish is much more appealing. I think that Mad Fiber's only weakness is the unattractive 12k weave. Otherwise these wheels are flawless.

I never liked the Madfibers, but this is the second bike here now after the Willier that looks just plain awesome with them!

That's just solid. Amazing build, large frames are much harder to pull off and you nailed it.
