I would say the Record one as it is better for resale (entire Record group or the Colnago one. I hate choices. What pedals are you going for?

thank you ernesto.
this is honestly the best bike ive ever ridden. its stiff, it absorbs road shock extremely well, it corners for me (even with the short stem i have to account for my lack of torso), its still reasonably light and by god it is sexy.
new pictures are coming eventually, but these will do for now.
and ignore the steerer tube, im cutting that today or tomorrow.

I think the bike as a whole is gorgeous, and the little details on the frame (like the lugs and the italian flag cable guides) are amazing and make me chuckle.

But (!) I don't think carbon fibre, with its high-tech military-esque look, goes all that well with such a classic looking frame. I would've used polished aluminium parts throughout.

It's your bike though, and if you love it then it's all good!

i agree with the first bit, but in all honesty, campag carbon doesnt really look high tech, more classy. Ive seen a full bore polished alu master in the same colour scheme as mine and i thought it looked crappy. + i wanted these specific wheels and the black wouldnt match polished alloy stuff.
but yeah each to their own!
