Walking by and having to look at this bike every day is killing me. I really want to take it out for a ride.
That is a sweet ride. I currently ride cannondale but looking into the Colnago, has been a favorite of mine (M10)
So for me, Colnago > Scattante.

This is bike porn at its finest. No one makes bikes as sexy as Colnago.
My only complaint, as a Campy fan-boy, why American on an Italian frame?
I'm actually a huge fan of the double tap mechanism. I like being able to "flick my wrist" and maintain a firm grip while sprinting. (holding the downshift lever as well as the bar)
I agree that Campy is getting a little big for their britches, they haven't been doing anything to set themselves as the standard for high end cycling recently. SRAM and Shimano are quickly ebbing away at the lore of Campy.
My Colnago runs Shimano. I will be getting Sram for it probably some time this year. Ernesto Colnago is a very forward thinking builder. His bikes have come with other brands of componentry for a long time now.

LowCel, have you started that hotrod up yet?

Completely sexy bike. Congrats.
Psimet wheels - what do they weigh? Spoke count is 24/28? Could you share the cost also please [maybe on PM]?
