Much thanks to Jason (Madcow) of www.fairwheelbikes.com for making this baby and the BMC possible. I will name my first born after him!
I would like to switch to lighter pedals, but I only have 1 pair of shoes for my bikes.
My twin brother, Ha Hai Ho, is suggesting THM Cranks. Once again, I am open to suggestions for shave off another gram or two.
Thanks and Ride On!

Again a very nice build, but I am a little biased as I come to like most of Jason's builds.
I'd suggest both of you to swap bottle cages to see how this would look like as to me the other way round (sticker-wise) might (but does not necessarily have to) look better.
I love Colnago's...
but BMC's are cool, too, I guess...
Someday, I'll buy a pair of Lightweight Standards, then I'll wake up.
2003 Colnago Dream (57 cm) full Dura-Ace 7700.
2005 Colnago C50 HP (56 cm) full Dura-Ace 7800.
2006 Giant TCR 2.
I second the skewer thing, a set of ti Tune's would be the icing on the cake, though I love the feeling of the Mavics.
Personally, I find these aggressive Elite bottlecages a bit too much for the stylish, classy but a bit more leasurely appeal of this bike.
Oh, and your Record cassette is probably steel + ti, instead of al + ti, or you have some cool secret prototype shipped directly from Vicenza.
Beautiful build! A more then nice Colnago it is beauty before weight saving again. And you are 100% right to do so. Specially because the President frame is not that light so this is the right way to build it!
So if you ride together with your twin brother that would be two times a black tie!
Girls in long evening dresses running behind………… Preferable in short cocktail dresses……………. Well I made my point.
I like both the Colnago and your brothers Merlin!
I like your stiles!!!!!!!!
Well now it is time toe switch the BMC to Campagnolo (sorry I am a Campy Addict).
By the way on the BMC a pair of M5 brakes would match perfect and save at least 110grams……………
