Apologies in advance for not having this built up yet as still a few bits & bobs missing, but I'm just super eager to share it
Here's a little back ground on my C60:
Colour - MHCF
Frame Set Traditional 53cm
Since I started road cycling back in 2003/4, I suppose like a lot of folks - have always wanted a lugged Colnago since I first saw the beautiful C40. At the time the obvious choice for me was the late C40 or the new C50, then came the Extreme C, Extreme Power & eventually the C59.
But for various reasons (out bid on eday, missed out on sales or wrong size on sales etc ……) I just never got to fulfil my desire until now, that’s after 12 years of wanting one
At this point, I have to thank my dear understanding wife, who continuous to support without complaint my costly “addiction”!
The decision to go Traditional was simple for me - in my humble opinion it just looks “right”
The colour scheme chosen was based on my liking for something discrete yet shows a degree of painting craftsmanship,
hence the MHCF option. A touch of colour but not too much & I like the partial nude carbon on show, it is a Colnago after all.
The bike & finish is absolutely gorgeous
Special Thanks must go to Mike at Maestro (England, UK) for supplying me with this beauty.
I cannot be more happier with his service. He alway answers my emails promptly despite the fact that it was about a year before I actually ordered one from him after my initial inquiry.
I placed my order back in Mid-November 2015, it arrived at my door last Thursday after waiting 13 weeks.
In my mind, Mike is without doubt, the “man” to go to for a Colnago
Grouppo is Campagnolo Record 2015 mechanical except for the Rotor 3D+ chain-set (which was from my previous bike) I’ve always ran Campagnolo, but had a wee fling with Shimano Ultegra Di2 with my last “good bike”, great as it was to use but I just cannot live with it anymore. Nothing wrong with it apart from just not my cup of tea! So, back to my old favourite for this build
Wheels - I have a set of Fast Forward F2R carbon tubs from my previous Canyon.
But I'm thinking to maybe mix things up slightly with this new build & going old school with some hand-build Ambrosio Crono F20 alloy tubulars with some Chris King R45 hubs (which I got fairly cheaply on sale).
What do you think?
I already have some Ambrosias Nemisis & Excellight wheels (which I built myself, but was a bit of a small disaster until my LBS rescued it, so I have got him to build this new set instead
got to do it properly)
I had over a year to collect all the parts, buying whatever/whenever I had funds & after selling my Canyon last January.viewtopic.php?f=10&t=115725
I will endeavour to get this build up ASAP & list the full build list with weights, but in the mean time I've taken a few images just to show it off a bit
Hope some of you might like it. Enjoy! C60 01
