Here’s the ‘in progress’ piccie for starters - better pics will be taken when fully built and set up!!.
I painted the alloy head set cups and I am pleased with the result. I have also ordered a white seat post clamp.
The jury is out on the tyres; I like them because they are different to my other bikes but all black or black with the slight white tape showing, would also look good.
I am pleased with the red bars, with the black bar tape on they will look good. It could even go with white bar tape, but we all know this is for champions and not for Sunday recreational poseurs
Parts still to finish the build are:
Fork expander plug
Weight as pictured is 6.15Kg so it’s going to be near the 7Kg mark, just under I think?????
As much as I liked this frame when I saw it in stand alone mode, I went through the same thing exactly. Red spoked Fulcrums (worse than than Boras aesthetically but great wheels). It is really hard to get a nice cohesive look with this frame but you have all the makings for it. And in a 57 sloping size. Very rare indeed. With so much colour going in the frameset I'll stick with my opinion that subdued components would complement it much better. It's a beautiful frame.
All stuff that can be fixed. However, maybe it's perfect in your eyes, and if so, then so be it. Enjoy!
Cheers for your opinion though - all good stuff!!
My C50 currently looks like this:
I reckon the tan sidewalls on yours look ace!

I second these thoughts. Very nice bike! I like Colnagos that let the frame be the focal point

Ribble has some 42s in stock, though you probably need wider bars.

Also Calnago - I have some Campione on my other bike, got them from here:
