Just completed the build of a friend's C60. What a sweet ride...

Are these John from Granville bikes? That Rca looks really familiar!

I really love the C60; been wanting a modern colnago considering how much I love my ct2. I'm just waiting to see what colors they come up with next year (or hoping that 48 ADAR C59 on eBay drops in price lol).

I like that C60.
Nice paintjob.
If only I could have more bikes, this one would be my next dream bike :-)

I'd say it's at least 10cm and considering the post height I wouldn't like to see an even smaller frame.

I think the spacer on top of the stem doesn't help it with the aesthetics of the stem and makes it look smaller. Or I could be worng and it's sub 100mm but I would be rather surprised.

Good point about post height. Maybe it's just the spacer or optics or whatever, but it looks like a 90mm or 100mm max.

I agree you can't go smaller on the frame... but if you're worried about reach, I think it'd look better to level the hoods off a bit (pull the bars up), go with a compact handlebar with shorter reach and use a 10mm longer stem.

Gorgeous bike I should say though. Don't want to be so negative about such a nice rig.

That's a very nice bike. I just can't imagine the next generation Campag crankset suiting a classic looking bike such as that.

I agree. I'm all for bold styling & new tech, but the new cranks just won't work with these classic frames.
