Its a 120. I think it looks longer with the winged section and the tail where the binder bolts are is fairly long. Its labelled 120 but seems to measure closer to 125. with the shorter tt (55cm) than I usually ride, it is a dead ringer for my Bixxis fit

Dude. Amazing.

Keep us posted. Spare no details. Update on the other bikes too. You're slacking!

Gotcha, thanks. The more I look at this bike, the more of it awesomeness comes out for me. It was a great call to include that bar in the complete bike build it goes very well with it. Congrats again.

I am keeping the BLE busy! I had a great summer with it.

Beautiful build Mr. P.

I had a set of Superzero's on my race bike a few seasons ago. My complaint was I couldn't get the hoods to mount high enough.

Does that bother you?

I've had my V3RS for almost 2 years now and it's been so stellar. Di2 and LW wheels. The confidence level downhill is unreal. Here it is in Spain shortly after I picked it up in CT.



Enjoy!

Wow, that one is even better 'cuz it's my size. So clean looking with all the concealed bits. I'm sure it's a PITA to work on, though! But seriously nice looking bikes there.

PS. Where in Spain?

Thanks, that's a 54S in Colnago-speak. Pic was taken northeast of Cordoba about 40km.

Thanks everyone for the compliments. I cant take any credit for the build. it was a pretty set spec. I just added my saddle and wheels.

Funny you mention this, I am having a challenge finding a hood location with a nice transition from the bars to the hoods. The initial setup made for a weird wrist angle when I was on the tops with forearms close to parallel. Im sure Ill dial it in. The hyrdo levers are so tall they just start to look awkard when they are high

My solution was to rotate the bars such that the drops were at a weird angle.

You have no such option. Bon courage!

Damn - what an absolutely stellar build. As always, very well done.

How is the whole hidden cable thing? Have you had to mess with it at all?

Also, how do you like the Veloflex tubeless tires? Been thinking about getting those for my WTOs.

Beautiful build!

I considered selling a bike if I could find one in my size.
