Italian Wheels

For today, a mix of Campagnolo, Colnago, and ... Ferrari!  Reader Joachim, of Austin, TX, talked his local Italian motorcar dealer into letting him use their showroom for a photo shoot of his '07 Colnago. More info after the photos ...
Joachim writes,

It is a new-old-stock 2007 Colnago Master B-stay with the Flash carbon fork carefully built up from parts I curated to the theme of "tradizione e tecnologia" - my take on building a timeless, modern classic steel bike with the edge of today's technological refinements. 

Highlights of the build are the full 2010 Campagnolo Chorus 11v group, handbuilt wheels by Harris Cyclery consisting of Ambrosio Excellight SSC rims laced to Record hubs (2x front, 2x rear ND-side, 3x rear D-side), and an ITM Millenium stem and carbon bar in 26.0mm clamp size.

It was built up just last Friday by my local Campy Pro-shop Music City Cycles, and promptly ridden over the weekend. It rides as good as it looks. For the cherry on top, Ferrari of Austin was also kind enough to let me use their showroom so I could take pictures of the bike!
