    Nice Colnago! My winter project was an upgrade of a vintage Trek steel race frame. I put on NOS shimano Ultegra 600 deraillieurs, new Dura Ace bar end shifters mounted on the downtubes, a nice light weight Shimano 105/Matrix wheel set and an 8 speed 105 cassette. It looks good and rides great. See on the road somewhere!

    Here is my baby. I built the frame up last year in the spring. Best ride I have ever owned. What makes it really enjoyable is the really good deal I got on the frame. Also, I really enjoyed building and wrenching my own ride. I will never be as fast as this bike, but I love riding it.

    Mine's a 2005 Trek Madone 5.2. It isn't their lightest Madone, but it ought to suit me well. I've already dropped a lot of body weight this winter--believe it or not, by walking. By the time I'm done, my weight loss will be about the weight of this bike.

    I'm anxious to get it on the road. I have to settle for mountain biking with studded snow tires for now. It's too icy for road biking now.

    Very nice. I am usually not a fan of Colnago, IMO expensive frame sets with hideous paint jobs. I have to admit that is a sweet ride along with the red & black one that you posted. Looks fast & classy. Have Fun...

    Now that would have had to be, heart wrenching. how much damage did you sustain. hopefully, just a few cuts and bruises and a hole in your wallet.

    you got to see yourself as lucky! at the end of the day the bike and any component is replacable, did the car driver pull out on you?

    that front fork is a mess ;) did the frame get damaged, if so i guess your going to be looking for a cheep frame and wheelset :(
