Wednesday is looking good :wink:
Beautiful bike. I was looking at one in the city last week. I really like the tube shapes on this bike a mixture of modern and contemporary that works very nicely.

I just took delivery of a matte black C59. Subitus, what are your thoughts on the "Colnago Headset System" on the top tube? I'd rather they left that off and I asked when I ordered mine if they could do that but like Stefan, they said no. Before I build it up I'm checking around to see if there's a way to have that removed. If not, then ok, I can live with it. Love it in every other respect however. Enjoy!

Nice bike!

These Colnago graphics are a pain though, I can't believe they will not offer it without them. Not so bad on "modern" bikes like the M10 but on the EPS surely it is better without it.

:thumbup: Hi Subitus.
Great bike, looks very nice, I also have seen it in person and it does look so much better, do not listen to these guys, the bike looks nice the way it is, I may suggest for a white lever brake covers.
I do understand the weather right now is not as nice as in California, but as soon as you get a chance please give us a ride report that we all are weiting for. I also thinking in getting one.
Good riding!!

I was asking Colnago the same,if they can paint one without the the tech-info and only keep the Colnago logos (they say each frame is handpaited on place so i tough it should be less work with less graphics)but they say,we do not do custom jobs.So,thats it.

By the way,frameweight is 1050g for 50s and fork is on the heavy side,440g uncut.Hope that will show on the stiffness,sitting on the trainer don´t say so much.

The weight is a little surprising given Colnago's claims about it. I was expecting it to come in under 1Kg in that size especially. I picked the one up in the bike shop in Sydney when I was up there a couple of weeks ago. I thought it felt a little porky but put it down to the FFWD Aero alloy clinchers.
Still a beautiful bike though. How is the ride? Is it as snappy and rigid as a C59 or EPS?

Maybe white hoods and white cables should fit.
