Edit...Sorry, posted this in the wrong forum. Can't delete it from here :(

Hi all

Browsed the forum for years so thought it about time I posted something! I've just built up my Colnago C60 so thought I'd share a few photos.

Colnago C60 (Italia white 52S, I'm 181.5cm tall)
Syntace carbon seatpost
Specialised Romin Evo saddle (set at 565mm)
Campag SR11 groupset
Lightweight Ventoux (Gen III)
3T ARX 120mm stem
3T carbon Ergonova bars (142mm)
Time carbon pedals
Tune cages

I've been riding a Parlee Z5 for the last 18 months. This was the tall headtube version and felt I wasn't getting low enough. The 52S is a little more compact and with a lower stack. Feels so balanced, partly because of the better fit. The two bikes ride very similarly with the Colnago a little stiffer (and heavier) but just as comfortable. Tracking is better with the Colnago. This has as much to do with the better cable routing and entry positioning, avoiding the rotational friction that I was getting on the Parlee.

Total weight including pedals is 6.33kg

Nice!
And perfect color ;-)

Question; how far is septets out of the frame?
Top frame to top of saddle please... Looks I need almost 280mm at a 58s...

Top of frame to top of saddle = 260mm. I've raised it around 5mm since I took the photo.

Awesome. I think Lightweight wheels are a bit much, however the build looks great. In this iteration reminds me of my c59.

That's really nice @Cloudman, probably my favorite color scheme in the current C60 lineup. Except for that "pinstriping" on the stays. Think it would have been nicer just to have left the pinstriping off completely.
That's the shortest Colnago headset cover I've seen. Tell me, is it part of a two piece headset cover where the taller piece just sits on top of the shorter one? Like the C59's had, at least most of them.

Everything looks fine but the seatpost.

Ha! yes, Agree.....I had it from the previous build. Will get a Colnago one at some point :) I've also moved the saddle back a few mm....was a touch too far forward ;)

Like it! A mate is in the process of building up a stealth C60.

Very nice. Build really the color reminds me of my c-59. The lightweight wheels seem like overkill to me, but overall beautiful.

Very excellent. I don't think I would change a thing. I like the striping.
