Finally the Master X-Light is finished! Over the past year other projects kept jumping in front of this one but those are done and now so is my Colnago. The build ended up just a little different than I had planned but the changes were for the better. The idea was to build a totally modern bike, with a steel frame, top shelf components, no carbon and a classic style. To do that is kind of hard because most of the better quality gruppos today are mainly constructed with carbon. Campy Athena 11 speed was the perfect group for this build because it offered everything in polished aluminum. To stay with the polished theme I used a Deda post, stem and bars. These components are beautiful, strong and lightweight. Campy Record Skeleton brakes, a Brooks Swift Ti seat, Campy cable set and Deda bar tape round out the components for a stunning high end build.
