    C50s should be embellished with campag and a quality wheelset that's for sure .....

    Will probably be sticking with Red due to freehub issues with my powertap sharing... Don't fancy using a shiftmate.

    Possibly flog all the red though and get DA 7900

    May de-sticker the Zipps.

    Probably go with black tape and my FSA stem/bars, and my black aliante with red bits...

    Id keep it stealthy and go all black with just a few hints of red in the finishing kit. Possibly FSA kit would suit well?

    In the quiet words of the Virgin Mary, come again?

    Thought you were Sram through and through? Why the change?

    Niceeee frame by the way.

    I'm never anything through and through! I like shimano stuff and think it will suit the frame better. I'll build it with my red stuff and see...

    I keep 5 on rotation...

    May be worth waiting for a CAAD10, they look great!

    2010 SL3s should be getting reduced about now...

    A COlnago with Dura Ace - is that even legal in this country?

    You wouldn't get away with it in Europe.

    It's only this country that seems hung up about the Colnago/Campagnolo thang... :?

    Even Colnago show their bikes with DA in the brochure, even on the front cover!

    And they make Di2 specific frames. Here's the thing. Colnago DON'T CARE what you fit for a drive train. Their carbon componentry is made by FSA in Asia so you may fit an Italian groupset but you may still be sat on a saddle, using bars/stem and wheels made in Taiwan.

    Anyway, a lovely bike (2nd hand?) and worthy of Boras or Zipps or a set of those Lightweight clinchers at £3k - might be your last chance before the child arrives.
