    The derailleur is pretty solid as are the wheels but i don't weigh much.. the saddle and post give me some pause and likely what would go first if anything...

    Did you build the Scott to chase KOM's on Strava or a particular event? There seems to be more Strava participation in the Bay Area than just about anywhere.

    I do a lot of hill repeats in the spring... on one particular climb i probably shift a handful of times in an hour climb, descend, go up again.

    How about the red one on this page....? The orange one you were commenting on is over the top -- in a way that I quite like, but some may not. The colnago with the chrome fork and lugs and tasteful build? Perfect.

    Lots of folks would get excited about that bike.

    Just saw this post, which you wrote after seeing one of the bare red/chrome/white colnago frames. Do you still hate the bike that much? c0lnago's build is just beautiful. Especially so for me, who is a classic fan, but most fans of modern cf/al/etc bikes would tip their hats to this one.

    Agreed. Both of my bikes are 2009 models, one carbon and one aluminum. I've never owned a steel road bike, but I can sure appreciate the beauty of the Master. A c59 with non-sloping geometry would be my ideal bike though.

    imagining steering tube cut.......

    still a not IMO. I dont like the fork, seat post or stem. All good stuff but when put together I dont think it flows well together. reminds me of a VW bug with several different colored panels.

    i think the stem and fork would look fine with the matching 3t post

    I'm not an oldies classic bike, classic car, classic older house, classic....anything kind of guy. I like new modern looking items. I can certainly appreciate the beauty of those classic items if they appeal to me. honestly that red with chrome bike, I wouldn't give a second look to if I walked by it in a store. Thats just me though.
