Yes Oscarito is my hero, and he won the World Championships 3 times no less

The C-40 is considered by many the Holy Grail of bikes, at least the ones of the Carbon era, and the '02-03 B-Stay version is the best of them all.

I could find a 2002 NOS 56cm C-40 Mapei World Champion, the Freire version that is my friends, at least to me, the Holy Grail of bikes.

Image

I am anxious to receive it, it will arrive in a few days, and I don't know yet if it is as good as the seller described it, many times I have bought a C40, asked the sellers to take all the measurements, they send them just to find out they measured it wrong and it is not a 56 :( This time, I hope it is. Currently it is at the Customs Office and I will receive it soon.

The frame and fork are brand new, but the fork is the standard black Star Fork, not the painted one like in the picture, that reduces a bit of points, but it is still a superb find.

I will dress it with Record 11 speed and Open Pro/Record wheels, cockpit will be 3T with Rotundos.... can't wait

Coincidentally, I was looking at exactly the same picture today, in my search of a 1998 Mapei C40 with black steel precisa fork.
So no I am not jealous, as I want another one ;-)
Looking forward to pictures.

The package arrived today , and yes it is brand new and a 56 !

I am still waiting for some parts to arrive ( headset, seatpost, nicer barrel adjusters), those probably come next week so the build will have to wait until then.

For a noob like me, tell me, what is it that makes this frame so special? The ride or the soul?

Wonderful frame. :thumbup:

Some Pics at daylight

The headset arrived, so I can start the build.... here with a Colnago seatclamp and the 28/27.2 shim.

I need a 1" carbón expander though, it didn't come with one.

Should I build it or sell it to Ride-Fly for an obscene amount of money :P ?

I am thinking about that, our friend Ride-Fly there at RBR had a C40 00F custom painted to this Mapei WC, the results were good but somewhat not as the real thing.

I fear I take my NOS fork to a painter just to be ruined or maybe well painted but with the colors a bit off and then it won't be never good enough, specially the shade of blue on the Colnago lettering I guess won't be easy to find.

I think I am happy to have a NOS, never fitted 1" Star Fork, even if it is just black
