i picked up my colnago mxl yesterday and went for my 1st ride today...this bike is unbelievable...it weighs only 19 1/2lbs...i could not believe how great the ride was...felt like the bike was a lot lighter that it is...i was use to riding an older derosa...this bike blew it away..also the bike shop here in macon,ga was bike tech and i have nothing but good things to say about them...they fitted me to the bike perfect...if u are looking for a new bike give nate a call...he really went out of his way to help me....

I have had mine about 3 weeks now. My 59 is just under 19.5
Very nice ride, stiff for my sprint work, but soft enough for
me to ride for 5 hour training rides.

I need to see this post, a new MLX is on the horizon for me:

What groupo/fork/wheels/ did you go with? I have everything down, but I'm unsure about the wheels, I'm thinking of Kysriums, my LBS Campy Record/Chorus groupo come with Mavic Open Pro's but I'm thinking of swapping them out.

What color? I like AD-21....believe it or not I have only seen one MLX on the road in the past three years where I live; of course I seldon even see other cyclist as I ride in the AM on weekdays...
