    Hmm. May have to get some of those in 24mm if I see a bargain. Very tasty.

    The 24’s come out at closer to 23mm and the 26’s closer to 25mm if that helps.

    The 28mm’s come up at around 27.2mm on the Bora’s. The 25mm GP4000’s came up at just under 27mm.

    Need to see. The C59 doesn't have massive clearances under the fork and already I get some scraping from my 25mm Schwalbe Pro Ones if they pick up loose gravel. I think my rims are 17mm internal so not huge but even still I was planning on going GP4000 II when these go in 23mm as I understand they do come up wide.

    I could always go 24F and 26R

    Also, can you show a close up of the bar and front end routing from the front and also non drive side? Interested to see where the cables are running as I see you're not using the downtube port.

    Here you go. I'm running the bar-end junction box for the Di2 bits. Both cables then run into the top tube on the non-drive side so the downtube cable option isn't needed at all. I did see a build online where he'd run the Di2 into the downtube and it looked horrendous and just had that one skinny cable flopping around the headtube. Grim.

    NIce, thanks. I think I am going to get mine re-routed the same, probably in the winter or when I go away without bike in June.

    Still think heatshrink would look better!

    That is lush. Something is telling me that I shouldn't approve of the Shimano on there but it just looks way too nice, stunning build, I'm very jealous.

    Thanks chaps - it's had almost 2000 miles put on it now and every time I ride it it just gets better. I can't fault a single aspect of it.

  • Love it when ppl put Shimano on a Colnago. Really upsets the "Tifosi", for some reason...

    Lovely stuff. One day.....

    It does trigger some people. Mad really, it's just a bike.
