The wallet emptier.
Price to put this together wasn't what I had planned but now she's done who cares about the money.
Colnago Asso 2002. Should be Campag I know being Italian but wanted to try Shimano. Completed with full DA 7700 groupset with the exception of hubs. Decided to put some Spinergy's to use (finally). Couple of pairs - Rev X's (boo I hear you say - they're rubbish - well maybe but I'm light in terms of weight so I'm not put off by the stories of exploding rims etc as I don't think i'm heavy enough to stress these wheels out) Then a pair of Spox wheels which are insanely light, I'm more worried about these due to carbon spokes and the roads around here are dreadful at the moment.
Forks are Colnago Force, Colnago branded headset. Stem is Deda Ultra Carbon & bars are Deda sfida - whatever that means?? Selle Italia Titanium Flite saddle, Eleganza bartape and jagwire cable kit (which BTW they've upgraded and is superb). Look pedals, Elite Ciussi bottle cages.
Frame is Columbus Altec2 tubing with some of those famous tube shapes, there's not a scratch on it so thanks top the previous owner who looked after the frame superbly. Needs a trip to the LBS due to a couple of niggles on the gear shifting but went out tonight and it's beautiful to ride, quick, responsive due to being really light - (so much so I think it's lighter than my Ribble Gran Fondo which is full carbon with carbon wheels & seatpost - need some scales to measure & compare).
Hope you like even if it is on the modern side
