That is a GREAT looking bike. The soft matte coloring looks sophisticated. Corima rims and SR gruppo are always classy.

With all those light components and still 6.8kg mass? Frameset must be a bit of a porker.

I always take "official" weights given out bike companies with a grain of salt. I think if you add a small amount to frames, wheels, groupsets then you always end up with a bike that weighs more than expected.

I swapped out the Corima's for some Enve 45s. The ride seems to be better and i have saved a few 100 grams. Overall i'm very happy with the C59.....but the C60 is looking better and better each day.

Keeps on getting better. Still far and away my favourite Colnago and one of my favourite bikes period.

Thanks for nice words. I normally turn bikes over quite quickly (every 12 months) but I'm happy to keep this for years to come.
