Pretty much 5 years ago (Feb 2011) I posted my Colnago C59 to this forum. During those five years it has evolved to the point of there not being a single component that is the same (except for the brakes) since my initial post, so I feel it warrants it's own new thread, along with an explanation of the changes and why I made them. Plus, lots of updated pics and new detailed build list. I'll probably post it all in several threads as I write them over the next day or two...

In the past I've just posted everything all at once, but I fear I may never post anything if I wait for it all to be done. So, just a couple of teaser photos to start... and I'll post the rest in stages as I sit at the computer.

Lots of good Colnago stuff happening on the forum these days :thumbup:

They are. Initially I went all "Euro" for my first posted build on WW. Used it as an excuse to try the LOOK Keo Ti Blades. They were on there for all of about 100 miles before switching back to my trusty Dura-Ace pedals. Weight added back... 62g over the Looks. Yes, since this is WW I will reconcile all the weight differences as well as I go through the changes.

What's that big gap between the bottom of the head tube and the crown for? Suspension?

That's how they is. Just a closeup pic showing some good detail.

(Hey Joe, this guy on WW spotted the "gap". Think anyone will notice the front wheel drive motor? He thinks it's for suspension. Lol")

Tell me about it. My C60 frame has a massive gap, I tried to find a lower stack crown race to bring the forks closer to the frame but couldn't find one. Now I am thinking of getting the existing one machined to reduce the gap.

That's just the normal gap that is present. Nothing abnormal. But wait, did your C60 come with a steel crown race? The new ones I've seen are just molded carbon, which is the crown race. Lots of manufacturers going that way now. At first I thought WTF but when you think about it it just sits directly in the inner race of the bearing and moves with the bearing surface, so there is no wear occurring from rubbing.

If your C60 is an early one it could very will still be using the steel crown race. I've only seen very recent ones. Are you sure you've seated the crown race properly? Got a pic of the gap you're talking about? Sheesh @Valbrona, now look what you've done... Causing widespread panic amongst the rank and file. :)

Loved the original C59 you posted... looking forward to this.

On a personal belief (and I hold true to this) - that gap is unacceptable. :(
