roughly 5.5 years a go i wanted to buy a cranckset from mikesbikesparts, but when i looked around on his website i noticed a saronni red colnago ep. i asked if it was for sale as well and he said he only bought it a month ago so he would consider selling it but only if i was happy to pay his expenses plus shipping.so i did..and i was poor again lol i only was shopping for a cranckset i still had a 10 speed group that i could use not long after i got my hands on good but used 11 sr group i only had to swap the crancks for 175mm units.
for roughly 5.5 years this has been my to go to bike, and after all those kilometers and years that i have had i only seem to enjoy her more, i often wonder if mike knew what he sold, im sure he did.
i meet buy her a new groupset one of these day but even the group is still working fine so no need, but im sure those new crancks would look good on her ! for the hills i do have a set of neucelons but as shown on the photos is how we go out most days.
for me its a perfect bike, did flanders on her a couple of years ago she descents wonderfull its plenty stiff fits like a glove, only weights 1170 grams while doing all of the above for the last 5+ years,

as my wife says, it must have been love on first sights ! (-;
the photos dont do much justice, i might see if i can get some shots outside over the weekend.
thanks

Wow, fantastic. The long and low fit on a Colnago looks so right.

Wow, what a bike.. My EP purchase was unplanned as well. I walked in to buy a complete bike and ended up walking out with a frameset. I just had to have it. Is yours a size 58?

coloclimber, i have been ! (-:
she had a bitt of a make over ( ever so slightly )because of her anniversary, new tires bar tap and wheels, what i cant believe if how well the paint looks specially considering it an 08 bike, it has a lot dept to it specially after a bit of polish, that and the timeless paint job confuses people after i tell them how old the bike is (-:
erik$; is your ep your main ride ?
