Just sold a 1996 Merckx MX Leader and bought this bike: 2008 Colnago Extreme Power, with full Campagnolo Record 10, Deda Zero100 stem/bars, Colnago seatpost, and Selle San Marco RegalE saddle.
Bars need to be swapped for Newton Shallows and dropped 1cm and needs proper shoes - the regular wheelset will be Record hubs with Ambrosio Nemesis rims and Vittoria tubs. Those are currently being glued, so shown with wheels off the commuter.
17.2 lbs as pictured. Bang on 5 lbs lighter than my MX Leader.
My other ride is a fillet-brazed Zanconato cross bike. 20 lbs on the nose.
The question is, can you tell the difference in the 5 pounds?
You do favor Cadel a bit in that pic!

I like yours a lot, looks very well balanced and I have the same wheels but in nemesis - man, the campy hubs roll great and the rim rides great. Just as ernesto intended.
Xjbaylor, I'll try to find a few more pics of the Zanconato - if you subscribe to the NY Times website, there are a few in the 2013-1-27 article about bike commuters. I will say, it is an amazing bike. I love it.
Nice bike btw!
