Nice in it's own way that it is (even with Lighweight wheels - very, very bling!), I could leave the Extreme C alone but not that absolutely stunning Super Record equipped Master - it's even just the right size (58?) to look oh so right.

I realise that this is a very bold statement, and I have seen some unbelievable bikes, but for me that Master is the best looking bike I've ever seen on here (please don't drum me out for coveting a road bike!).

To be honest I think it's less that the levers are too high, more that the bars need to be rotated slightly forward so that the tips are horizontal to the ground. Fine detail though, I was more taken with the shiny appearance and beautiful tube profiles!

campyoldy.co.uk should be able to supply NR or SR with hoods for a very fair price.

You need to do something about the pedals too...

Thanks for your words...;)

Yes, I know pedals!
I have using those SPD-r:s on rack and didnt have any other shoes that day for test ride.
I have also original pedals & straps.

Also tyres are clinchers, but they are just easier way to go.

Now just starting to build -94 sea&sky Attitude.
Thats why I found this great forum!

Welcome to the forum Samu!
Nice to see a fellow compatriot here...and the fact that Finland's Klein population increased by 1 very nice example is also a good thing! :D

There's a thread about Colnago Master here too:

Beautiful. Amazing now it has been pointed out how wrong those lever look though - you're going to have to re-tape and move them! :wink:
