I was unemployed for many months and was putting a ton of miles on the Dogma until it developed a tick, creak and then a crack. With one month to go until the Triple By Pass ride (my A ride for the year)- I had to pull some emergency measures on the home front and picked up this 55cm C59.

One of my favorite bikes was the extreme power. I still regret ever selling that one. So I am pleased to be back to hand made lugged carbon with the right geometry for me. This bike carves so nicely downhill and is amply stout enough.

It's good to see you back on the brand I like best. And it's a nice looking bike too. Have fun with it and good luck at the triple by pass.

Nice looking bike. I'll have my C59 out on your roads later next week for the Bob Cook. I've descended that hill twice now on a C50 and a 59. Smoothest bikes I've ever ridden by miles. I'm a big fan of the lugged construction too.

I just remembered how much I hate you :)

Love the C59!

Like you, I had an EP a couple years ago. It was a 56T, EITA color job. Although it *might* have been a touch small, I regret ever selling it. I'm certainly getting the itch for a new Colnago as well. Hopefully for next season.

Anyhow, glad to see you back in the game.

[quote="coloclimber"]I was unemployed for many months and was putting a ton of miles on the Dogma until it developed a tick, creak and then a crack.

So how did the Dogma issue get resolved, did you return it if I'm allowed to ask?
Thanks

Thanks for the reminder... in case if I want to sell it again some day.......

Nice C59! Deep dish wheels some day?

It was a previously used frame. Its already been repaired by Calfee once.

Damjan- Boras or LWs someday.

Rich- What is up brother?

Koen- We are no longer twins :( Yes I am recovered. That sucked! I need a lower stem than the -10 PRO. Any ideas?

Kyle- I love Di2 shifting but I moved from Record 11 to Super Record 11 since I thought it was more fitting for this frame. Di2 11 speed would be ideal.
