Long awaited and wished for: Colnago C59, coming soon.
Ordered over a month ago and in a hope that by forming Colnago USA, same has rectified the distribution problems of the past and I get my frame before the end of November 2010. Hey Colnago!!! Noticed the year?! I said 2010!!!!
Upon the build up, I will post my review on the frame which will be build with Campy 2011 (already waiting for the frame).
As a Colnago fan and user, in the past I raced C50, CT1 and Extreme Power. Also rode C40, which got me in to Colnago craze.
With it’s characteristics, C59 encompasses all the individual features I came to love on all Colnago models I rode and features that I liked on other bikes I raced:
- traditional geometry (not the sloping one that is “in style” with 90% of manufacturers today)
- lugged build on C40/C50
- comfort on all Colnago models
- clover shape of the tubes on C50
- integrated head set (Cervelo S2)
- internal cable routing (Cervelo S2)
With the stealth black paint choice (first one on the picture) and traditional geometry, build in Italy, it was no “brainier”. However, there is a problem: can’t race frame like this!!! Not cheap to replace, so … any sponsors out there! Helooo!! Over here!!!!
