Still playing with the colour scheme but I now know what all the fuss is about.

Colnagos are sensational to ride...

    Are you a goth? :D Nice bike, but don't let NapD see the large sprocket gear combo!


    I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.

    Very nice indeed! It looks great, nice to see a non HP model too.

    It is a case of believing the hype, Colnago really are that good.

    Who are the wheels made by?

    The wheels are Novatecs...50mm carbon clinchers

    The large sprockets are there due to it being my climber - we're off to Alp D'Huez next week and I can't flippin wait !

    I think he was referring to the OCP thread. If you're taking pictures of your bike, NapD would have it that your chain should be on the smallest sprocket on the cassette, regardless of what gears you actually have on the bike.

    Beautiful mate, are those the wheels from Fuerte Bici? Or are they wheelsmiths? How do they ride? Stunning anyhoo bike. Love the colour scheme!

    The sprocket thing is more to do with the fact you shouldn't cross chain...

    Looks great though!

    (except for the badly wrapped tape ;) )

    Have fun on th'Alpe!
