just decided on a new build

Decided on BFWH 45 sloping
Bora 3.5 wheels on 25 mm tires
disc
3T bar & stem
Shimano Ultegra
mid compact( but this was hard doing 11-32 with a long cage after struggling with an 11-30 short cage). The latter is more practical but will be doing a few climbs where the 32 wil make a difference.

This will be my first experience on carbon wheels but my second on disc. should be ready in a week
Hoping this new bike will make some climbs in Girona and Switzerland a bit more enjoyable

Beware the reaction of any Italian you ever tell that you're putting Shimano on a Colnago. Ask me how I know. ;-)

Very excited to see your photos.

In Italy most Italians riders use Shimano, even on Italian frames.

In North America, most cyclists (including Americans with an Italian heritage) think that an Italian frame should have Campy.

Colnago himself doesn't have a problem with it.

Absolute nonsense anyway - use what you like.

The designer of the C64 runs Dura-Ace Di2. As do I.

You have to put your photo on a hosting site first so that's another whole faff of choosing a provider, setting up an account etc. I use Flickr, other sites are available.

Then you post a link to your photo on the hosting site which W_W forum resolves so it can display your photo in glorious 1024 pixel width.
