well, I don't ride my colnago like this but I took my TT wheels and put them on the nago just to see what it looks like. I did a group ride with the colnago like this once as I had no other wheels one weekend (they were at the shop, the seat and post are from my old bike, most of my stuff was getting put on the fondriest). Flame away.......

Kind of looks like mine (second pic). I have mostly dura-ace, SLR saddle, Vector Comps.
Didn't know anyone else here had a Geo Dream plus.

Hiding in high performance cycling wheels. Maybe this is supposed cause of infertility? ;-)

I used the disc at IM florida and got loads of compliments, I saw myself on video riding and it really does look awesome when turning over, got that cool look to it, better than just plain black discs.

On the other hand it is a bit obnoxious, and you need to back that disc up with a good bike split.

The disc was done by bicycle sports dot com, who did not want to do it but they did. It was done for a mate of mine who they sponsor and he used it once and got a new sponsor so sold the disc to me for the low price of $325

Honestly when that disc spins it looks insane, I see Rabobank have a disc with orange kinda swirls in them, they look cool too. And when you lock the brake the disc stops aaaaaaahhhhhhh ok I admit I show boat for the crowds at triathlons.

I will take a pic of my TT bike and put it up soon, I need to get a good picture of her, as you can see even these pictures were a little dark.
stock paint job...C-40

One of the advantages of Colnago is the option to select from many outstanding paint schemes at no additional cost. Of course that's also one of the overlooked reasons why Colangos are more expensive to start with. Other manufacturers $500 extra-cost paint jobs are not as elaborate.
Love that bike!Dropped

Of course, not with the dorky aero wheels. But the frame is just beautiful. One of my all time favorite bike paint schemes. Nice.
thanks......african

I really like it too, the C40 in this color is too dull, on alum it really is bright, carbon is to dull - my opinion.

With my rabobank giro helmet, team panaria jersey -- I hope the cars can see me.

And that one is a beauty! (without the aero, of course.)

You should be proud!
