Colnago Master 55 - size 50cm traditional
I'm planning to go for the modern/non-retro built, though may well change a little depending on what will be mentioned in this thread.
Current choice of components:
Campagnolo Record or SR, with or without the red logos? (feel free to share your thoughts)
Stem: Extralite 110mm (OS)
headset: Chris King Sotto Voce (black) - IMHO the silver Record 1inch threadless will not match the black/gold color scheme?
pedals: Look Keo
H/bars: ?? most likely an Easton EC90 (majklnajt will definitely comment on this )
seatpost: Campagnolo record carbon 27.2 (or any other suggestion?)
wheelset: a have a few sets available (Hyperon, LW, RZR, 32spokes OP)
saddle: Selle Italia SLR64
feel free to add some comments
i think a 'shallow' deep section rim would suit perfectly - cosmetically - like 32-38mm or something.
its what i would have used on my peg had i not already had LWs from a previous build.
edit: try building with the red logos first? you can always remove them later
thanks for the suggestions.
I sold my SR '09 components to a friend 3 months ago..
though frankly i think the original SR will look better rather than the one with the red logos.
as for the suggestion on the wheels, the Hyperon Ultra should be OK i guess..
i'm not in the hurry to build this up, will be taking a while since i hardly ride nowadays.
kinda enjoy the process of building, collecting bikes rather than riding it lately..
For the build on that bike, I'd go with fairly conventional looking wheels such as the Hyperons or OPs. I'd try to find a Record or SR group without the red accents because I'm not a fan of the accents. I just looked at the accented brakes on my son's C50 and I don't see how you could remove the accents without wrecking the rest of the logos. I'm sending my Pegoretti to my builder today and I bought Chorus for it since it's the best group without the accents. Black headset would be my choice too with those colours. For bars, I'd go with the style you find most comfortable. I've settled on shallow drop for all my bikes whether that style was available when the frame was new or not (and I have 3 C40s so I'm definitely mixing eras).
Enjoy the bike.
Nice frame!! Chick are gonna love the black/gold color scheme!
You can remove the red logos and replace them with gold ones
But maybe it will be a nice contrast to everything else.
The bars might be ok as long they are debadged!
I would choose LWs and Hyperions. You might try it with tan sidewalss. I think it would go well with the golden color!
Looking forward to it
looks like I will opt for the SR or R11 with red accents.
makes no sense to go back to the original SR..though visually it looks better.
I have another C50 in STSL which will be ship out to me soon, and the C50 in PR38.
damn i'm addicted to classic Colnagos, buying and buildling them.
there's something special about the older generation Colnagos..can't find the exact words to describe.
knowing you i know you'll ask me to de-badge the bars
i guess it won't be that noticable and i'm just too lazy to de-badge it..
another option is to use my extra ITM Millennium stem, with ITM Millennium classic/shallow bars.

Stem: Extralite 110mm (OS) ok
headset: Chris King Sotto Voce (black) - IMHO the silver Record 1inch threadless will not match the black/gold color scheme? Colnago makes a black headset. Not CK quality but it will look better. Otherwise anodize a record or chorus one maybe?
pedals: Look Keo
H/bars: ?? most likely an Easton EC90 (majklnajt will definitely comment on this ) Easton!? please... 3t, deda, something more suitable
seatpost: Campagnolo record carbon 27.2 (or any other suggestion?) fine
wheelset: a have a few sets available (Hyperon, LW, RZR, 32spokes OP) Hyperon without decals, ventoux, something custom with a low profile carbon rim (again without decals)
saddle: Selle Italia SLR64ok
anything black and campy gets my vote, from chorus on up.
somehow i can't see silver parts on there, as much as they'd otherwise look proper on anything colnago steel.
ps if you can swing it, consider getting a custom steel lugged stem, painted to match. something like this from dazza, in black & gold. note: he apparently doesn't build one-off stems, i just posted this for ideas.

Little too much gold for me but I wouldn't kick it out of bed.
