@haydos,

as much as I like a Colnago, I would go for the Columbus Nemo, all steel Tommasini..
as a matter of fact, I actually purchased a Tommasini Tecno a month ago just for keeps.
never ridden one, though i've been eyeing on a Tecno for years (apart from a Colnago Master).
pretty sure it's going to be an excellent ride.

save the C40 for a later date build-up.

here's my Tecno in blue.
cheers!


That Tommasini looks amazing!

I have the first gen non b-stay c40. i'll try and take a pic (or 2 or 3) tonight.

Sell me the C40 and build up the Tommasini, perfect plan!


I only just got the C40 after looking for one for close to 10 years! :beerchug:

But, go with steel.


I would have - turns out it was quite a bit too small... that was my dream bike :cry:

The Tommasini isn't here just yet ... so as i'm an impatient bugger I built the C40 to ride until it comes in.

I've borrowed some Reynolds 32's off a mate until my Enve's are built. I will post a pic tomorrow

I love riding my C59. I assume you do too. You already have a top end carbon fiber bike to clip into so why not build up that beautiful steel bike? A benefit would be the opportunity to compare the ride quality of each and decide for yourself which you prefer. I sometimes wish I had a modern high end steel bike I could ride every other ride for comparison. Good luck!

There's been a heap going on guys!

I've been riding the C40 for a while, i've changed from a C59 to a Dogma 2 and I received the Tommasini about 2 months ago but it turns out I was sent the wrong size. I'm now still awaiting a replacement. :cry:
