    If you'd like to tell me where you live and when you go on holiday I'll happily come look after it for you, promise I'd return it ;)

    What a beauty! Very very jealous.

    Absolubtley stunning!

    I was starting to get a bit concerned about all the high end Italian bikes coming out of the factory with Shimano on them. I suppose thats the advantages of building your own,.

    Do you think you ll ever give EPS a go or are you more of a traditionalist.

    I ve ridden DI2 and it was scary good, cant see Campag letting Shimano have the edge for too long.

    Stunning simply stunning bike ! Off to get a Lotto ticket.

    After seeing these at the London Bike Show, it's probably my favourite carbon frame on the market - you lucky, lucky man!

  • Amazing bike some H D pictures are needed to show the bikes true flair and beauty.

    I don't think the seat collar should be sitting that high. nice bike though.

    looks wise eps is far better than shimano. what looks like some kind of ball screw rear derailer isnt any bigger than a mechanical version. hate to think what it costs.
  • rolf_frolf_f Posts: 16,015
    Lol - it looks like my mountain bike :lol:

    Seriously - be gentle with it. Mat black is a pain; hard to keep clean and don't think about polishing any marks off or you'll turn the finish glossy. Even without that, a good chunk of my MTB has become shiny!

    PS - I love anything carbon with lugs :D

    I have the same bar/stem combo. Like you way you taped the bars - is that helicopter tape?

  • Absolutely lovely. Not to demean the Colnago name, but do I have at least some agreement when I say that the font type makes a difference - a proper difference - to the looks of the bike? E.g. Giant's really simple but modern looking, Trek's a bit myeh, Spesh ditto.

    could you do a front pic looking directly at the stem? just want to see how the cables and heli tape look with the 3t bars.

    Thanks - great job very tidy - looking to get a 3t stem/bar for my Enigma - great use of the heli tape.
  • I have those same bars and they are ace.
    Now how does this bike compare to your old Dogma.How would you describe the ride,weight handling acceleration etc etc.I can`t believe you`ve actually had two £3 grand plus frames in 18 months lol.

    Sweet je#us, that's stunning. I feel a stiring in my loin!

    Happy riding!

    I have not ridden it yet,
    But if you sell the dogma on,the next frame dont cost as much,so its sell one on to go towards new one.
    That way you always have a nice frame,and you dont have to pay out big bucks. :D

    Hope you enjoy riding it, it's one sweet rig. Only thing that looks a bit off is the saddle, she's quite chunky and tall. A low pro Flite or something would *look* better but saddles are too important to be bought on looks only.

    What kind of mileage do you get out of your tubs? Mine are race-day only.
    When a cyclist has a disagreement with a car; it's not who's right, it's who's left.

    Saddles i have gone through lots,and i get a numb under carriage :( so thought i would try the prologo as it seems to be softer.
    We shall see after a few rides,but as yet not rode it.
    Those tubs are the mavic power and grip link,i had there clinchers before and i was impressed.
    I used vittoria tubs and they seemed to last a summer or more.

    Maestro in Bognor will prob do them for about £500 cheaper than the official dealers.
  • Beautiful bike, serious bit of kit. Bring on the dryer weather to give it a real airing!
  • That is stunning! Sometimes I get a feeling something is missing in my life, now I know what it is.

    It's quite a bit more than that actually, with free seatpost works out around £850 cheaper than somewhere like Sigma.
