I just transformed my hybrid bike to a road bike by using Campagnolo Daytona shifters with full XT components that my bike already had.
I changed the wheels form 700X35 to 700X23 and everything runs smooth now. I am posting a picture just to share my first project bike.
Thanks to this forum i found this URL ( that gave me assembly instructions.
Is that a threaded headset and threadless stem? Colnago plugs?floatch

How do you like the threaded/non threaded setup? Some people will say your bike is silly, with the threaded/nonthreaded setup and colnago tape. Don't let it bother you. I dig it!

Thanks Floatch.
I am waiting my new threadless fork to arrive any day now.
About the colnago plugs, i just bought a colnago tape and i installed it, i didnt think that someone would say it is silly.
Beyond that i still believe that not all of us can (and want to) spend 4.000 USD to build a bike. My opinion is to enjoy the ride. I, being a fun rider, am doing 560 miles every month (aprox) and i am enjoying every mile. That is what it counts for me.
