Yes, i know, but only one :)

Colnago zero offset seatpost is great :)
Hooked rims allow use 28C tires with 6bar pressure(Vittoria AirLiner inserts inside).

Finally i configure and setup all things on my v4rs, ride few hundred miles and today was first hill race.
No, i dont have questions to this bike. Yes it stiff, but it have to be stiff. There are not any pennalties to aerodynamic i can go faster then 90kph like on my DogmaF with high profile wheels on descent. It looks very classic and just work as exected, its response are very clear :) Its little bit lighter then DogmaF and little bit heavier then SL8(all my bikes have same parts). I use my custom wheelset with Duke Baccara X hooked rims and Nonplus hubs with 80psi pressure and Vitorria Air-Liner inserts.
I think Colnago received enouth reources and rider experience to realise its potential al last.

Nice built!
Where did you source the Nonplus hubs?
Online I could/can only find their gravel version
Thanks
