    Thanx guys, I changed a few things up when I got it home, will also be cutting the steer tube and changing the stem to a white matching Colnago stem as soon as I'm sure on the fit... I may also swap the bottle cages for some black ones...

    Leave 5mm of steerer above the stem's steerer clamp. The very end of a tube is the worst place in the tube to add compression.

    the saddle looks cool, like the white one you had before, but in practice some people actually sit practically on the front when they have their hands on the drops, i think that design may become a hindrance for that matter,

    I have that same saddle... be sure to raise the nose above the horizontal plane line. It's designed to "cup" your butt.

    Judging from the finish and the component era (pre-carbon campy) I'd say yes. Could be wrong but as far as I know they didn't dabble in any other alloys. It's a sweet bike.

    Edit: and just caught the original Flite. Was easily one of my favs and one which has certainly spent the most time of any saddle under my derriere. A NOS flite in white just sold for $250 on efray. If I could find one of those in perforated form I would gladly pay whatever price they wanted.

    The Defy series is extremely popular. Giant gives you a lot of bang for the buck ...IMHO.
