Guess this is a decent weight for a traditional geo Colnago..
Enjoy the pics.
Fresh from the box, steerer trimmed with CK headset installed.
Frameset with the temporary "decommissioned" venerable TIME VXRS Ulteam at the foreground
Enjoying the process of bike assembly, tough but nonetheless fun
a new C50 taking shape
Built complete - with Campagnolo Hyperon in lousy lighting..
Love the handling of the Colnago, especially on smaller sizes.
The VXRS Ulteam rides great but can be a little twitchy on the downhill.
Colnago's handling is just unbelievable.
Will take better pics with the Hyperon someday.
This is my second C50, the first being the PR38, size 52.
The LWs sure go well with every bike!
You surely are happier with showing more seatpost
Take pics of the new one and the PR38 together and post them in the Colnago thread...
Reading all the good comments on Colnago frames, i am ashamed that I want (wanted) to sell it...
Thanks for the comment.
The PR38 is without a groupset at the moment.
I will be focussing on the next Colnago, the Master 55.
Lack of space, riding time means I can't afford too many complete
bikes sitting duck.
Haven't ridden the Merckx MX Leader for long time.
The Rossin Professional in Columbus SLX is still unbuilt.

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
I liked your comment about handling. Stability at speed on any road surface is the reason I've settled on Colnago as my standard bike.
Have fun with it and post pictures of that Master when it's done.
Simple and straightforward built.
Talking about Eurus Carbon, I had the Shamal Ultra 2 way.
Rode it for less than 300km, sold it away.
It may have the latest bling, with the tubeless tires and all, but nothing compares to the Eurus Carbon.
I upgraded the bearings to Campagnolo Ceramic.
A tad old fashion but it's one of the best alu Campy wheels ever IMHO.
