I had to shed some bikes ( that is, move them on as opposed to hiding more in the shed!! )
Some I bought as projects / builds, others were just a bit too large...
I needed something strong for the Dartmoor classic, so opted for this lovely Colnago Decor, It had a standard road double fitted, but there's some 25% climbs on the route ( spent Friday climbing for an hour out of Tavistock! :shock: )
So I swapped the cranks for a set of square taper campy Compacts.

Hope you like it so far...
I hope to swap the black headset for a nice alloy Miche I have somewhere around. Currently fitted with computer, pump holder etc...

That should win an award for Most Tasteful Use of the Colour Purple. Absolutely beautiful.

thanks guys; the stem is a little long for me (115 ) so if anyone has a shorter Colnago stem to swap please get in touch...100 is ideal
