Excuse my poor photo skills.
This is more of a running question than just a build topic. I'm thinking of adding a final touch with Bora Ultra 2 DL. As I own a FarSports 50mm clinchers laced to DT240s hub (pictured) and LW Standard 3 being my racing pair although I race on my Canyon SLX Ultimate to not damage this precious bike.
Thinking about switching the tape to Lizard Skins 2.5mm as I don't like the PRO Digital Carbon tape besides the look.
About 6.8-9kg size 58cm traditional.

Great post. I have the same frame pr99, but with Shimano Dura Ace C-24. Can't get over how different a personality the wheels give it

My pr99 has an all black Colnago seat post. Any idea why some are black and some white? Model year diff?

I'd love to see a "busyman" custom saddle cover on that. with some matching tape. preferable white iwth colored stitches and a colored liner.

It looks great! Bora will be the final touch of perfection.

I'd put a white flite on it ( level off course ;) )

I swapped my Boras for a set of Handbuilt 50mm Colnago 28h Carbon Rims on a Powertap hub set and I don't miss the Boras....

I built them myself so that adds to the charm :thumbup:

With Lightweights and level saddle ;). Personally I think it would look better with Bora's, though.

From a looks standpoint I concur, but you'd never see me shell out the sheckels for lightweight wheels.

Great bike.I love it with the Lightweights. Maybe I would change the seatpost and stem for a all black version.
Bora's would look great and perhaps a bit better then the lightweights, but this setup is already brilliant.

Lightweights look too "busy" on that frame with the four logos on each wheel. Dark label Boras and call it a day. A very very good day.
