Hello everyone, here is my colnago c59 and de rosa protos

traditional 54 C59 with sram red and lightweight=6.47kg
Image

Protos with 2015 super record and lightweight=6.42kg
Image

i haven't got the frameset weight, but i guess the c59 is around 1100g and the protos is a little bit lighter than c59, around 1000g :mrgreen:

my c60 is OFWH painting, traditional 53, i order in September and i did this when i am waiting... it should be looked like this! :D
Image

i love sram, but it looks really ugly on protos, so i have to make a compliance to choose super record...damn it!

here is more pics
Image

Image

Image

which wheelset your would vote for? :D
bora two:
Image

lightweight dark spokes:
Image

lightweight white spokes:
Image

corima mcc:
Image

mavic cosmic carbon ultimate looks reeeeeeeeeeeally not so good so i refuse to thread... :shock:

btw, look at this downtube, so sexy, i cannot hold on any more :thumbup: c60 has double size downtube than c59, this one, double size than c60!!! image it... i am really shocked when i saw it.
Image

i would give you some reviews a few mouths later, thanks for watching.

Protos looks stunning (esp on black LW).

I would go Ventoux on the C60 given your predilection for LW and that Corima's look awful as mocked up!

Well, actually colnago did not provide traditional section before their summer holiday because they want to ensure the capacity of sloping c60, i ordered in September with one of my friend, he got it in November from UK local dealer and i am still waiting... bloody colango...

I vote for the lw white wheels with the protos. Are you in Singapore? Also change out the fsa headset to record.

Yes, in fact after their factory summer holiday, they start to accept the order for traditional c60 frameset, so everyone could purchase now

Very nice collection, but I think that Protos downtube (no matter how sexy it may look on it's own), is just too big and looks a bit out of place against the other tubes on the bike. As for the wheels, I'd go with Boras (dark label).

Looking forward to seeing your traditional C60! :thumbup:
