    Just my opinion, but I prefer the crank you have there to the newer design...

    Gorgeous bike. [Picky Mode] May I suggest that to balance the tricolour bands on the seat tube that you replace the stem top spacer with a red anodised one? The front end is a trifle too black compared to the back. [/Picky Mode]

    Better side shot...


    I really like the look of the current model of chainset too but I want to build up my Canyon Ultimate again so i'll use the this older chainset on that and put the new SR on the C60. Not sure i'd like the idea of a red spacer to balance the colour. The head tube has a little bit of colour on including red, green and white in the world champ stripes behind the Colnago logo. The shifters / brakes also have a small bit of red on the 11 speed logo, as do the pedals.

    Lovely, what else is there to say, besides I want one

    Lovely but can't help thinking Lightweight wheels look a little tacky. Personally I would de-sticker them but I guess they won't say Lightweight on them then! Or Vision Metrons for less than half the price. Frame etc is stunning. I know it's picky but when I look at the bike I can't help seeing the wheels rather than the bike due to the shouty decals.

    I agree. Great looking bike but shouty wheels :D
  • lone wheelerlone wheeler Posts: 163
    Had the Boras before I got the C60 frame, agreed though, Dark Label Bora's would be better. Maybe next year!

    Just about to start rebuilding this one back up....

    Oddly they look fine on the Canyon.
