IMO stem and saddle do not match the frame well.

Looks like a Canyon stem to me. If so, it would have to have been shimmed down.

@markyboy: did you shim down a Canyon stem? If so, what shim did you use?
It's a 3t arx ltd stem and I used a m part shim.

Beautiful Colnago, but what’s with the odd lever placement?

Hi! Long time lurker but first time posting here, I think.
Here's my Ritchey Road Logic.
Size 57 frame
Campagnolo Record groupset with 50-34 Stronglight chainrings
Bora Ultra 35 tubular wheelset with Continental Competition 25mm tubulars
Deda Zero 100 stem and bars
Deda Superzero seatpost
Fizik Antares 00 saddle
Bontrager RXL bottle cages
Pedals now switched to Look Keo Blade Carbon CR
Current weight is 7565g
I'm waiting for a Deda Superleggera handlebar to shave a few more grams (around 70, I hope). I have also tried the Superleggero stem but I prefer this one and having replaced the screws with titanium ones it weighs just 2 g more for the same length.

Levers look okay to me... Saronni Red is so classic. Nice bike.
Also I like your fabric saddle. I run the scoop flat on mine, but the baseplate is white and kind of annoys me. The black baseplate looks cool.

Levers are too far round the bend so the bars have been rolled up to bring them into the “correct” position in relation to the ground. Classic telltale is the hump where the lever meets the bar.

Agree, modern bars with shallow ramp angle to hoods there. Meant to be flat across the hoods from ramps. Not to say if it is comfotable for the owner I should have anything to say about it... Which doesn't stop me obviously. ;)
