I love the ghost lettering throughout, but I think some smaller wheels like 303's would look better!

throw some Campagnolo blacked out parts on there and ride that thing!!!!

IMHO, not real fond of the look. I have a C59 and a C50. Both have Enve wheels in lower profile (45's) than the wheels in your photo. I had a pair of 303's on my C50 but ditched them in favor of the Enve's because of the appearence and the Zipps were made of lead. I think Campagnolo Carbon Wheels will probably look the best.

Like others, I believe these are a bit tall for that frame as far as look is concern. If you want to stay with Zipp 303 will look better IMHO.

My preference would be Lightweight, Bora or Mavic Ultimate.

Thanks for the responses.

I'll start off by saying, I am 6'3" and 200lbs so no wheel will really blow me around.

The C59 is a 60cm traditional frame so it is somewhat tall. It will be SR11 with Gravitas SL's and 3T cockpit.

I don't really want tubulars.

I do like wide wheels Firecrest (HED C2).

I would like to stay away from an alloy braking surface.

I would like a wide wheel.

I would like a wheel that is 60mm deep.

Wish they made a Zipp 606 or Cosmic Carbone 60's with exalith.

I can get a pro deal on Mavic and Zipp. Just dont like the rear spoke pattern on Bora's and Lightweights are a bit more then I want to spend on wheels unless there's a deal to be had.

Keep em coming. Thanks all.

If you have gone this far go all the way. Trust me the Lightweights will be an absolute perfect fit. Given the cost of the frame and Campagnolo groupset just bite the bullet and spend the extra "Large" on the Lightweights. You will not regret it I promise. Again, stay away from the dark side Luke, Zipps don't belong on a new Colnago C59.

i agree with the above comments. Never thought Zipp looked the part on a Colnago but that is personal taste. If you go with those wheels I would prefer no logos.

Have fun with your build!

By your criteria, I'd go 404 CC and remove the zipp decals, leave on the Phoenix decal and the 404 CC designations.

I must be crazy or something, but I like it. If anything, I'd remove the red stickers there and keep the ghosted look :thumbup:

Campagnolo or Fulcrum would be the best choise by miles. If you want zipp at least take a 303 set.

Wow not a single mention of your riding preference, let alone weight, and all the big (wheel) names have been mentioned already!

Lightweight standard would be a nice (but expensive) choise also.
