    I just finished up the build on my Colnago CX-1. I plan on making a few changes before Spring but for the time being it is complete. Better pictures will come later.




    Frameset - Colnago CX-1
    Wheels - Psimet 50mm carbon rims w/ White Industry Hubs
    Stem - FSA OS190 - to be upgraded later
    Handlebar - RaceFace Revolution - possibly upgraded later
    Seatpost - Colnago carbon
    Saddle - Selle Italia SLR
    Brakes - Planet-X CNC
    Bottom Bracket - TruVativ GXP
    Crankset - SRAM Quarq compact
    Front Der - SRAM Force
    Rear Der - SRAM Force
    Cassette - Shimano 105 12/27 - to be upgraded later
    Chain - KNC X10 Gold
    Cables and Housing- Gore Ride On
    Cages - Elite Custom
    Pedals - Speedplay Zero Stainless
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    My OCD cannot overlook the fact that the paint on the fork and headtube do not match exactly.

    I have no idea, when I ride it in a month or two I'll be sure to post a ride report.

    there is nothing wrong with that. my "everyday" record equipped bike has a centaur cassette and veloce chain. my "good" bike has a record chain and cassette. no reason to expose expensive wearable parts to excessive miles and poor weather (especially when the cheap stuff functions the same)


    edit:

    i should also mention, i am a traditionalist when it comes to italian frames but if your not going campy, you just as well hit it out of the park with fsa, sram, raceface, planetx, and kmc.

    Great build!

    It is around 16.5 lbs right now. I hope to get it down to below 16 which I think is decent with the 50mm clinchers and the SRAM Quarq crankset.

    Yep, couldn't pass up the snow camo tape. It's a very limited edition tape.
