You need to flip the stem front clamp. Is upside down unless you meant to do that.
Ha...thanks...I completely missed that. It looks like a 'C' now...Colnago on the brain I suppose.
Edit: Fixed it!

however there are several parts that do not quite fit the frame. first of all the stem is way too "fat". i would definitely go for a custom painted lugged steel stem with polished lugs, such as llewellyn (quite pricey though):
the bottle cages and the whole groupset are quite plump too. it's the latest technology, i know, it looks great on a carbon fibre frame, but on this frame with slim steel tubes, it looks a little misplaced/overdressed.
please, do not get me wrong, it still is a fantastic bike. all its components are fantastic if you view them alone. but alltogether, i see room for making the whole build a little more harmonious (= heavier though).
anyway, enjoy your sweet ride and thanks for this great photography! and don't care too much about my personal opinion!
There is only 2-3 things I would change.
1. Chris king headset. It may be the best but a campagnolo record one would be the most appropriate.
2. Saddle. It looks too "modern" not that classy. A flite kit carbonio would be great (and lighter).
3. The stem has big and bold graphics. Something from 3ttt would be nicer maybe.
4. Not this bottlecage. Try a campy chorus or record.
A great bike nonetheless!
