:thumbup: One of my favorite color schemes. Half the joy is building up a bike. Enjoy.

Beautiful frame. Love the color.
I would of prefer it sloping do.
My frame came to 1125 grams with "everything" even tough it is a bigger frame??
It rides great. Enjoy!

I was going to get the 2014 C59 eps/mech sloping but the dealer has only 2 color left. so I opted for the 2013 they have and would like to try a traditional Colnago.

A traditional geometry lugged frame always looks better.

Jealous. I'm forced to ride a sloping 45 cm due to my height.

Very nice indeed. Where I live the Colnagos are too expensive, so I'm looking at the web stores. Mike at Maestro only carries the C-60 (I emailed him about the C-59 and he answered that it was discontinued). I found a few C-59 in my size at Bellati, but I don't like the the available colour schemes. Did you buy yours online?

I don't care how much this weighs, it's a great color scheme, maybe one the best. Just don't build a spacer mountain and this baby will be headed for good things.

Salsa,

I'm 5'9 but with short legs 30".
I think this 53cm Traditional is perfect for me.

Svimsoot,
bought it from a LBS in Italy and they also have an online site - I know this guy who get his Colnago frames to that bike shop. He went to watch part of the Giro and to pick up and ride his C60. I actually have a choice between the 2014 and 2013 same price for both. but only 2 colors left on the 2014 which I'm not into it and it's sloping. pm me so I could give you the info.

Classic wheels look great as well! You should try 25mm tubulars.
