Long time lurker, first time poster. Some great colnagos on this forum, thought I'd share mine. C59 in GDBL in 56s. Campy SR11, Deda bars and stem, boras with veloflex carbons in 23mm and a prologo scratch nack saddle. I don't have a scale but I doubt it's a weight weenie ;) I've had it for about a year now and it's an absolutely fantastic bike.

Doesn't matter how many of these i see i dont get bored at looking at them....for me its a near perfect bike. I have been thinking about getting one but i kind of like the olive green one. I like it because its different and a bit unique. Were you tempted by another colours?

Thanks for the kind comments gents, the bars are Deda Presas, I have a set of Campiones but feel like the compact shape of the Presas looks better on sloping frames.

I really debated the color for some time sjc166, and man that olive green colnago looks so funky and different, you can't go wrong! I chose the blue because on an Italian bike the azzura just felt and looked right :D

I have a set of silver record 9/10/11 hubs that I am waiting to lace to a pair of nemesis rims and maybe throw some 25mm Vittoria SCs on them as a winter set so will post pics once it's done.
