No road riding for a couple months at least here in Finland...

Here's a build list with final weight, which is still unverified at the moment but should be correct:


Feeling like a true WW geek when posting excel spradsheets of bike parts... :lol:

The bottle cages look as if they're part of the frame. Nicely done!
210g? I didn't know those Conty Comps were that light..

I don't know where I got the 210g from, looks like 240g would be a realistic weight since the whole wheelset with cassette and skewers is 2118 grams. I think I may change them to Veloflex Arenberg 25mm to suit local roads better and take away some harshness from the 46mm rims...

I got the idea for the cages from Voeckler's bike:

@eurperg...with hyperons and tan sidewalls!! looks just awesome, a nice touch of retro/mod and a climber's bike mystique. very nice indeed.

As much as I like tan sidewalls on certain frames, I think just plain black suits this frame best. The Hyperons are great. I like the deeper profile look on this frame too... nice to have both.

I think of all the sloping Colnagos this size (54s) looks proportionately perfect to my eye. With geometry that very closely matches the equivalent traditional size which not all of them do.

Colnago, Campagnolo, Hyperon, Deda and tan sidewalls. So Beautiful. The Dedastem and frame matches so perfect together too. Well done

Tan sidewalls make everything better.

Must say never been a huge Colnago until your bike. Congrats.

I would nearly prefer the classy look of the hyperons. I`m not shure about the tan. sidewalls, but I wouldn`t change tyres for that. It`s like colnago said: nice to have them both.
