I like to share with you just another project i am currently working with.

Last summer I have purchased from Italy this beautiful Colnago Oval Master which had its share of Joy to his previous owner and it was left in its fate in a corner beaten and neglected.
After a lot of services and totally repairs i managed to bring it to a rideable condition, having changed almost everything else except frame and fork and groupset I really enjoyed for one month and it was as i expected.But my mind is restless and i thought that this frame deserves something better so i have started the total makeover of it.
And here is how we begin first by painting all in chromovelato red
Further to mention that i kept the original fork which i repainted and decided just for a change and weight shed to put a Columbus minimal fork.
Weight as posted.

Definitely use the Colnago fork. A Colnago frame must have a Colnago fork IMHO.
And this saddle is not the best match for this frame. Again, IMHO.

Many thanks for your kind opinion.
The point is that I like to make this a comfortable bike for brevets that's why I have chosen the
Brooks instead of a lighter one, which has amazing comfort.
