Like it. See you've gone for an alternative fork. I did the same and shaved off quite a bit of weight on my Extreme C. I didn't think that fork would work, but IMO it does.

Clever build. Fair bit of weight saved with the fork. 10 speed Campagnolo looks great. I'm thinking now of tracking down a stork stiletto light UMS forfor my 2005 Trek Madone will save 100 grams.

The Star fork that came with this was very heavy at 473 grams. I am assuming that for the team issue bikes they had thicker forks. The frame is heavier than a standard Extreme-C as well. I have a 48s Extreme-C that is under 1,000g and I don't see the extra 100g on this 50s coming for a small amount of paint and very little extra carbon tube lengths.

Ah, that explains the weight. Mine is a size 57 and came out, i think, just under 1100g. The front end reminds me a bit of Lance's Trek.

Ah, jeez! This looks great.

Makes me think of something that’d be discussed in the “connoisseur”thread. Your Colngao has a little bit of everything going for it - vintage, racer, classy, etc.

Anyone else notice the Nikon color details? Slick.

[I’d like to do something similar with a Colnago 45s, if it didn’t break the bank.]
