Very nice. Yellow bikes are great (like mine) and especially like the chicken on the seatpost. Need to find a chicken decal.

Word count aside, love the bike and love the build. Super cool.

Absolutely PERFECT build. Personally, I love that you are running the Hed Jet Black wheels. It's a reminder that I should pick up a set of those again.

Do you carry around a camera on your rides? Those pictures are phenomenal.

If I could ask a favor though - take off the lights from the bike and get that perfect "clean" shot of her.

Honestly I have felt that my C60 was the "perfect" Colnago build (for me at least), but you sir may have done better.

Very nice, and great to think back on Tommy V's great run in yellow from 2011. One of the first Tours I really followed closely and a blast to watch.

Not throwing shade I kind of agree but they seriously need to figure out how to make their paint sturdier; I don’t know why but mine and many others on the internet have paint that chips when you look at it.

But anyway - I love the bike! Sweet build too. Just my size... if you get tired of it.

Took 27 comments for someone to mention Tommy Voeckler. Legend. That frame is stunning and expertly curated. Hope it gets lots of miles.
