    If you're updating this thread on a part by part basis it's gonna be a slow burn :lol:

    That saddle is gonna be tilting down a fair bit. I bet you're going to have an upturned stem as well....

    At least line the crank arm up with the seat tube.....

    Somebody let me know when it's done. I don't think I can stomach six months of photos of components.......

    Blimey - careful you do not peak too soon. I mean taking the seat post out of the box is a full weeks work.

    Do Colnago do bar tape? If they do I might soil myself with excitement!

    C59 then OP? Did you get that headset to avoid using the Acros one, if so, same thing I did, and the same seatpost.

    This is going to be like "Grand Designs". I will try and post the odd sarcastic comment to make it seem more authentic.
