Spare wheelset, crank, derailleurs, drop bars, saddle, chain - OH NO I did it again

I bought a higher end wheelset for the Colnago Master build leaving a decent wheelset unused. I then realized that only a frame, fork, headset, and brakes were missing for another build. Hello Lisa!

I'll recoup my costs and maybe $100. It'll be my first real Triathlon build - but with drop bars.

She should arrive Friday. I have a white Bontrager saddle on hand and possibly white tape. I've ordered black Tektro calipers, black on black Tektro levers, and 8 speed friction/index DA bar ends (I have an 8 cog cassette). I have clip-on aerobars that needed a home. I'd make more selling parts off but it's about the build, my bike fund is healthy.

And, you're off and running again. Can't wait to see the final product.

She arrived today - incredibly well packed and mint. She even had a stem (though I'll have to swap out for my larger sized bars). Weight of frame, fork, headset, stem, and seatpost - 2.68kg. I also received the shifters, brake levers, and calipers this week. I'm torn between building the Kona immediately or finishing my Colnago.
