Colnago EPS MTBK 52cm traditional geo.
Gen II Lightweights/Vittoria Corsa CX tubs/Tune skewers
3T Team ARX stem/3T Pro Rotundo bars (waiting order for CF Team Rotundos...)
Look Keo 2 Max Carbons
Old Spesh Toupe 130 and Spesh Ribcage bottle cages.
Little touches: Carbon/Ti top cap, pimpy red alu bottle cage screws.
Weight: Errr..I'm guessing about 6.7kg with Lightweights (mine are pretty old) and 6.9 with 7850 24CL training wheels.
Brief ride report: The minute I sat down on it, there was that 'ahhhh' moment you get from a top spec Colnago. The fit is perfect, and it just seems to ride itself. It's as shock absorbing as I remember the C40 and 50 were, but it's significantly lighter and stiffer. Incidentally, Look seem to have sorted the bearings on the Keo 2 Max, as these new ones were perfect. 3T stuff is nice - slightly stiffer than Deda combos I'm used to. Also, this was my first ride on 7900. Great gruppo, but rear der upshift is a bit too vague.
Things people will pick up on: Dura Ace on a Colnago: uh huh, never heard that one before. Bottle cages: yeah, they're cheap, but these work well for me - not too heavy, don't fall to pieces.
Bottom line is that there's no bike in the world I'd rather own.
i kinda think so..
its a different looking beast traditional as apposed to sloping
i think the DA and 3T looks modern and up to date
all in all great bike ..
enjoy the summer
PS Thanks to Danielson if he's still on WW for doing such a great job with the build.
THE PRESENT: 2016 Colnago C60 ST01, 2017 Wilier Cento 10 Ramato

It was a concern to me too. However, there is a finish on there - it's just a matte one instead of the clearcoat we're used to. I gave it a pretty good thrashing on some bad UK roads in some bad UK weather yesterday. Cleaned off the road slop/mud and there's not a mark on the frame.
I'll see how it goes. If it goes badly I'll report back here and get it clearcoated...
