Thought it was about time I shared my new colnago..... not too 'weenie' at around 7.5kg

Very nice bike.
Seat looks super low compared to the bar, is the frame too big for you?

Thanks Captain!

Well.... the frame is a 48cm and I am using a 12cm stem.

I am pretty small at 5ft5" / 5ft6" but I have 'stumpy' legs and a long torso.

The next size down in the Colnago is a 45cm - but this has a 13mm shorter top tupe but a steeper STA (75deg30 vs 74deg30) .... I was concerned about getting the proper saddle set back and top tube length.

I am already running a 12cm stem so I played safe and went for the 48cm.

I previously rode a 47cm Colnago Dream and the 48cm was the closest in terms of geometry etc.

if you switch to an other saddle you can choose one with a lower rail
then you can lift your seatpost a bit

I have tried lots of different saddles...... slr, flite, arione but I found the Aliante to be the one for me.
