    The Colnago could be hot with some changes. As-is it's too cluttered looking. The wheels and white tires are the biggest offenses. The mirror looks like a goiter.

    Aesthetically ergo bars are really never a good choice. There are so many good choices in compact and shallow classic bend bars these days I don't understand why anyone would run bars with an ugly bend that limits where they can comfortably put their hands in the hooks.

    On the plus side the frame looks great and I think the black components and black bar tape work with it well.

    I don't own that bike, but I can provide insight. For referance, I ride more in the hooks than on the hoods.

    yes, ergo bars (deda 215s with wide flats) only given me one comfortable position in the hooks and one in the drops.

    most classic bars only give me one position in the drops and nothing in the hook. they often have a tight bend in the hooks that feels uncomfortable in my wide palm

    i just got compact bars and they seem to be the answer but until recently, they were not readily avalible in 26mm. Because of this, I still own some ergo bend bars.

    +1. I really like the frame, but I agree the bike would look a lot better with much more 'stealth' wheels/tires. Seems like there are at least 3 shades of red there. The saddle, stem, and finishing tape (and rim decals?). Anno red in the hubs (and single spoke?). Deep red of the frame. It all looks close (and I'd have to see it in person), but that's really hard to pull off. Still, it's a nice set-up for sure.

    I seem to recall you having 3cm of "huge spacer stack."

    Can confirm, used to ride 50/34, my CAAD has a 53/39. I frequently wish I had a 50/34.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    Not enough riding done yet to report out. Just got them finished and home last night. They did build up nice and round to 1263 grams FWIW.

    Sweet. But..... why not have the stem, bars and seatpost of the same brand?

    And... citing the rules and consistency you desire, the Mighty Internet computes your bike a NOT! Bwahaha!

    jk. Your rig is nice. This whole thread is silly, but I still check every now and then to ogle some fancy bikes. Cheers.

    Hot Parlee. Hotter without spacers and Thomson bars.

    Hot Master frame, dropped hard to a serious not by the mirror, tires, ergo drops, wheels, pump... Starting with one of my grail frames and then going so wrong brings a tear to my eye.

    Hey now I've been looking/wanting a mirror for my road bike and that one on the Colnago is pretty much my top pick in terms of mounting and mirror stability.
