Well, new to the forum, but this seems like the place to talk Colnago C59.

About 8 weeks from delivery still, but spec looking as follows:

2013 C59 Italia - TSCV - 56s
Campagnolo Super Record EPS
Enve 3.4 Clinchers/DT Swiss 240 hubs
FSA Plasma Bar/Stem - White
Selle Italia SLR Flow - White
Speedplay Zero Titanium - Red

Will post pictures as soon as I can.

Would welcome thoughts on cosmetic items, such as the Colnago White Carbon bottle cages, and perhaps a small White Colnago decal to go on the wheel set too. Also would love to source a Colnago branded FSA plasma and Selle Italia saddle, so if anyone has any ideas/suggestions let me know.

The tscv is interesting and, I'm told, even more beautiful in person. It makes the tape color choice hard unless you go white, though. I've seen some try to match the grey or the red and its not as easy as it sounds.

I'd be anti the integrated headset as you lose adjustability and in the case of the colnago branded Fsa, at least, don't get a weight advantage (actually take a hit if you compare to light bar and stem combos). Just my two cents.

Not sure if you saw this, but its relevant to the bar/stem combo...

Thanks again for the link. Integrated option not really a weight weenie option, moreso a cosmetic one.

I agree with the thoughts on bar tape too, and have managed to track down a grey Colnago cork option as per link http://totalcycling.com/a-z/handlebars/ ... OSSED.html and hoping that this will be a pretty close match as opposed to going with silver or other less likely to match options.

Other Options for Bar Stem would be the deda zero 100 range.

I favor Deda as it gives weight benefit, adjustability is preserved (i.e., tilt of handlebars can be fine-tuned), and it's Italian. Could also go 3T if you like their ergonova/ergosum bars.

Deda zero100 servizio corse stem and superleggera bars from deda give total weight of ~305 which is more than respectable and a couple ounces/~60g better than Fsa integrated).

I'm curious to see the grey tape you mention. Could look really good. Are you going white for hoods and saddle or black?

Forgot... If you want white bars and stem, and want deda you'll have to go presa carbon bars and the Zero100 servizio corse stem. Presa is not quite as light as the superleggera bars. Still get some marginal savings over the integrated option and its Italian.

I think black bars would perhaps clash with the frame, seatpost, etc.
