Hello all, have been lurking here for a few weeks as a guest - saw this thread and decided it was about time I joined and posted something.
Here I am on my Colnago C50 riding through the Arenberg forest (first photo) and also a bit further on at the Carrfour del Arbe (second photo) this June. We did all 160 miles/260 km... Yes it hurt!
It is a C50 of the original vintage rather than the HM version kitted out with Record 10v (soon to be SR 11v!) with the exception of the cassette which is chorus to save a few £££ and they wear better than the Record Ti cassette too. Wheels are Ambrosio Excelight 32h laced 3x onto record hubs and shod with Vittoria pave 24mm clinchers.
The bars are deda 215 with the deep belgian drop and the stem and set pin are Colnago's own offerings via ITM. I also had on this some look 396's (I think...) which have recently been changed for some Time RXS carbons due to a knee injury. Am sitting on a Fizik Aliante (v. comfy!) and am recording the data on a Polar CS600. Cages are elite carbon.
I know its not really WW fodder, but is is v. pro and if it can het me rounf this parcours then I think it deserving of a post on here.
Still feeling fresh at the Foret d'Arenberg! 100 miles in, 60 miles to go!
You will notice I am ina very small gear here as it was all I could turn at this point - some 145ish miles in.
Check the mud in both photos, very PRX!!!! It had rained overnight, but we were mostly lucky - only saw one broken bone all day.
