Is "Fralige" Italian for step here?

Have any of you had any problems with your painted seat posts ? I.e. Fitting them and the post getting scratched or fibre paste and the post slipping and getting damaged etc etc

Here's my C60 mhcf 52s

Image
ImageImageImage

Campag super record mechanical throughout apart from
Chorus cassette 11-25
Power2max NG power meter 52/36
Bora ultra 50 clinchers
Veloflex corsa 25mm tyres
Time RXS carbon pedals
Deda superleggera RS bars and stem
Cinelli gel bar tape
San Marco Regale carbon FX Protek saddle (the red clamp underneath is for my seat bag)
Colnago carbon bottle cages

There's a tiny 3mm spacer under the stem. Initially this was above the stem but the clamp of the stem is so pared down for weight saving that the spacer was slightly larger than the stem so that my knee very occasionally scraped the edge of the carbon spacer when I was out the saddle. It only needed to do this once for me to shift it below and out of harms way!
I've also got some clear film protection on the underside of the down tube, seat tube, under the front fork and also wrapped the chain stay. Unfortunately something chipped up under the chain stay right where the join of the film was and it chipped the lacquer. So I re-wrapped it only to find that the lacquer was quite happy to start peeling off if I wasn't careful. It's covered and protected now but I'm lacking a bit of confidence long term how durable this finish is going to be. In hindsight I may have gone for one of the painted lugged / bare finished frames.

Nice bike. It does deserve a properly done bartape wrap though.

This C60 is awesome and deserves its own build thread. Love when Colnagos are equipped with full campy and integrated P2M campy powermeter.

I love this colour scheme it is spot on......except the Italian flag colours on the seat stays, it grates a little with me but this is small beer.

I would prefer that the seatpost matched the stem for perfection, by that, I mean both to be gloss or both Matt and debadge the seatpost.

Other than that ......gorgeous
