C50 in Colnago's 65cm (!) size which sounds like it's going to be a gate. It's actually 60cm c/c on the seat tube and 59.2 on the top tube.

I've got a very short torso, but very very long legs. An average setup for me is - center of bottom bracket, up the seat tube, to the top of seat is 85.5cm with 175 cranks. Nose of saddle to stem, mid-handlebar, is 59. I know I'm deformed :)
My first steel frames in the late 80's were between 62 - 64 c-to-c. I have an alu frame from Fondriest [former Cofidis bike from F. Andreu] at 61.4 c-to-c, and two carbon frames. My first Fondriest carbon had extensions on the seat and head tubes [63.5 c-to-top], while the second [see pic] is off the shelf the largest frame size they made. This one is my first that is slightly sloping, so that throws all my comparisions off - but I think 60cm to the top of the top tube, not the seat collar.
I never thought I could ride an off the shelf sized bike [all my race bikes were ex-Andreu], but this TF1 is super. I'd imagine that these days the tech in new materials, layups, and design has made this possible, with as much to do with components as frame.
Please note that it no longer wears Tufos, but it was the only pic I have handy.

Very nice bike. I can see the stem is a Ritchey, but what bars are you using? I like the shape of them.
