Firstly, that bike looks fantastic, lovely integrated component choices - but moreso, it just looks 'right' from a geo perspective - have Colnago been lengthening their head tubes (finally!)?

Secondly, I'm normally a fan of low profile wheels aesthetically, but surprised how much more those Carbones suite the frame set compared to the R-sys, must be the large diameter tube set.

This is SUCH a good looking bike! Well done.

Mavics give the bike a much more modern look than the boras. Even the low profile ones look great though. Id be interested in your opinions of each wheelset too if you have the chance.

scratch saddle didnt work out?

They (Carbone SLR) look great (even greater on a matt black bike)!

But I had them before and think they are much softer than my current zipp 404FC... so I do not prefer them... but then again I am also 88KG's...
What is your "feeling" on them?


I'm 81 kg and they feel stiff as, I found the BORA's harder to get rolling, once rolling at above 40 kph they were awesome, the mavic's just seem to spin and spin the new braking surface is a great design to improve braking.

I have only ridden the R-Sys wheelset a couple times so need some more km's on them to give you a serious opinion but so far so good espically given what they cost me :D

looks great with boras, one of the best here :thumbup:

mavic SLR normally do it for me too, especially R-SYS SLR, but not so much on this build strangely.

Amazing looking bike, can tell me your saddle hight and the drop from the top of the saddle to the bars. I would like a C59 but not sure if it will work from my Retul fit?
