Hey guys,

I'm planning on ordering a Colnago C60 Frameset today and wanted some info regarding sizing. I'm 5'6" and currently ride a 2017 Giant TCR SL (Small) and a 2016 Specialized Allez DSW Sprint (52), both with Speedplay pedals.
I would prefer a similar size, or slightly smaller, to my current bikes. Size 50, perhaps?
On another note, I really dislike the Colango color matched seatposts. Is it blasphemous to go with a plain black carbon seatpost?

Thanks!

Size down. A 50s Colnago is more like a 54cm. I'd suggest a 48S as more "like for like".

And the color matched seatpost seems appropriate/required only on specific color, in my opinion.

i think you're probably a 48s based on your info.

Well that sucks! No size 48 in stock :(
My second and third option are the Pinarello F10 and Bianchi Oltre XR4. Sizing is similar to the Colango?

Merlin Cycles had the Frameset on sale for $3800. Only size 48 is in white :(

Not feeling the white. Besides, Merlin has the 48 in stock.

Are you doing sloping or traditional geometry?

It’s sloping if it’s a 48. The smallest traditional you can get is a 53.

I have close ties with a Colnago dealer and have seen all kinds of people buy them. If you are 5'6", I definitely say you should go with a 48s or even a 45s, depending on how aggressive you ride.
I have to agree with you these colored seatposts are not the best looking things. See if where you buying the frame will sell you or swap it for a black seatpost. My guy will do it for you. Or get a campy 31.8 searpost. It will look very good on any Colnago. PM me if I can be of help!

Cheers!

I'm also 5' 6" and see myself riding a 45s for what it's worth. However, I've never test ridden any size Colnago.

For the record, I currently ride a 49cm Addict (w/100mm stem). I used to ride an older 49cm Addict (w/90mm stem) and before that a 50cm Madone before that (w/90mm stem).

Looks like the 2017 Giant Advanced SL in sz S is a bit bigger than my XS 49cm Addict, so I understand the 48s or maybe even 50s suggestion.

Happy biking buying! Very exciting time.

I am 5'7" and ride a C60 in 48S with a 110mm stem and no spacer.
I suppose depending on your ration leg length/ torso and riding style you will go for 45S or 48S.

5’ 6” and ride a 48s. But depends on your proportions

Interestingly the reach on a 50s isn’t that great a leap over 48s. If you are long limbed maybe 50s would work. 48s safer.
