At the end of my Colnago C59 TSMR thread, I mentioned that I would be building up a C59 in CLSM for a friend. Well, it turns out that for financial reasons, he can't keep the C59. So, I bought the frame from him, and will be building it up as my own. And conveniently, the frame is just my size, 45S.
I started off by wrapping the frame in 3M auto vinyl to protect the paint. I think I added about 80-90g of weight by adding the vinyl. The vinyl also made the matte black look glossy, but it still looks fine to me.
The goal of this build is to have fun with some components that I would not normally use, but have always been interested in trying. Some of the components are WW components, but again, weight is not the ultimate goal.
Frame, 1060g pre-vinyl.
Fork, 404g uncut, pre-vinyl.

I also got Parts of Passion saddle yokes. Thankfully the POP yokes fit, without issue.
The green on the Power2Max doesn't match the green of the frame. I wanted the CLSM green paint to customize paint some things like the seatpost clamp, headset, and other small parts. I emailed Colnago-America, asking who the manufacturer of the green paint, and I got an email reply. But it was a blank email.

6kcycles seatpost clamp 10g.
Deda Superzero seatpost uncut with Parts of Passion yoke and two M6x35 Ti bolts 184g.
Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow saddle 120g.
