Thanks guys.
Love the handling of the Colnago, especially on smaller sizes.
The VXRS Ulteam rides great but can be a little twitchy on the downhill.
Colnago's handling is just unbelievable.

Will take better pics with the Hyperon someday.

This is my second C50, the first being the PR38, size 52.

Cheers!

Looks really good and comfortable! Congratulations! :thumbup:
The LWs sure go well with every bike!

You surely are happier with showing more seatpost ;)

Take pics of the new one and the PR38 together and post them in the Colnago thread... :wink:


Reading all the good comments on Colnago frames, i am ashamed that I want (wanted) to sell it... :?

@majklnajt,

Thanks for the comment.

The PR38 is without a groupset at the moment.

I will be focussing on the next Colnago, the Master 55.
Lack of space, riding time means I can't afford too many complete
bikes sitting duck.

Haven't ridden the Merckx MX Leader for long time.
The Rossin Professional in Columbus SLX is still unbuilt.
Hmm..

I love everything about this build. the colour scheme is understated and it looks great with the LW's. This is one of my favourite ever Colnago builds. You've done a fine job there, well done.

Bravo.

That's a great looking bike and a colour I don't remember having seen before. Why has Colnago gone to the same type of paint as everyone else? I love these older paint jobs. The detail on Colnago paint was something that first attracted me to the C40 back in 1995.

I liked your comment about handling. Stability at speed on any road surface is the reason I've settled on Colnago as my standard bike.

Have fun with it and post pictures of that Master when it's done.

A very, very good job. Makes me feel a bit nostalgic...

Nice build.

I had a pair of those Eurus Carbons too. Awesome hoops. The wheel that rides most like them in the current range are the Zondas.

Thanks for all the positive comments.
Simple and straightforward built.

Talking about Eurus Carbon, I had the Shamal Ultra 2 way.
Rode it for less than 300km, sold it away.
It may have the latest bling, with the tubeless tires and all, but nothing compares to the Eurus Carbon.

I upgraded the bearings to Campagnolo Ceramic.
A tad old fashion but it's one of the best alu Campy wheels ever IMHO.
