Willy, that's a gorgeous build and definitely the best looking PR99 C59 I have seen!

Is the stem a 3T Arx Team with stripe removed? Ergosum bars? Thinking about trying out 3T stuff for my build too...

Ultguy, its a 56 c59.

Antti, thanks...bad time to take pictures, too much light/contrast. its a 3t stem without stripe, easily removed with nail polish remover,...ergonova handlebar, a little bit smaller than the deda zero100 bend, fits me better, and the 6 degree bend allows me to slam the stem...handlebar too low/hoods too high on photo, will post a nicer shot after i sort those little details out.

Willy: That is how a bike should look like. Always said that people should have white bar tape but your bike proves that black is okey sometimes. PR99 have to be the best paintjob by Colnago and looks nice with those TRP brakes

Fit looks off to me, unless it's just ridden around the block. Way too much post for a traditional frame.

Nonsense, the fit looks perfect. Nice bike Willy!

Here are mine. I am considering converting the M10 to Record EPS, but I am a bit uncomfortable drilling holes in the frame...

that bike probably gets more kms than most here, and not just around the block :-) retuled fit by the finest, think i have owned at least 8 size 56 traditional colnagos over the last 10 yrs (most have photos here in this thread) but wouldnt even go into that discussion here. but here is a sloping one which might suit u even more, 52 slope, same ht, same tt!

The some 22 cm of seat and post sticking out are a small tip-off. :lol:

Colonia...Dont want to start a web forum war like many people like to, and i appreciate your feedback, some people like to ride bikes, others like to fit bikes, to each his own, but you got to get your facts right dude! Seatpost plus saddle extension in that bike (the trad geo one) is 18.5 cms, not 22. furthermore, and in reference to majklnajt's trad geo 57 c50's seat post extension, you posted, and i quote:

Colonia wrote:
Eh, no. It is low for the frame. That saddle height is near correct for a 70s-80s-era frame, before the advent of STI/Ergo shifting. Riders began sizing down about 2-3 cm after that, in order to maintain a decent saddle-to-bar drop. Generally, I don't think you should go lower than about 18-19 cm of combined saddle and post on a modern bike. With the current setup, there is almost no drop.

go figure,too short, bad for Colonia, too long, bad for Colonia, and 18.5, right in the middle of Colonia's rule, bad still. puff, guess u where just bored at work, or that any colnago other than ur extreme c, just doesnt look nice :-)
