@Haydos: What size tires do you have on those Enves? I'm still trying to get a feel for how much clearance the new 2014 C59's have in the front fork crown area. Would be curious to know how much clearance you have with a set of 25mm tires on those rims. My understanding is that they've increase the clearance over the pre 2014 C59's but I've not had my hands on a 2014 model to see for myself yet. Will soon however.

I've had 25c gp4000s on the 6.7's in this frame and they fit with no issue at all. The corsas are 23c

Lovely frame, and nice build. Enjoy it!

Off topic: everyone knows that Colnago should be built with Suntour Superbe Pro. End of argument.

Beautiful build and I really like the color way on that C59 :thumbup: And how great do those gum wall tires look on the Enves! I just got a set of the Open Corsa Evo CS tires and am curious how they perform. Have you used them before?

They ride beautifully. Can be more puncture prone than say a GP4000s but they ride so much smoother - so for winter/training i'll use GP4000s but for feeling fast and grippy (and smooth) these will be the go to's.

Great looking build, can you tell me from the finished build the measurement from center of bb to top of your saddle ? Thank you

Is it a Di-frame converted to wire?

Just curious. What is wrong with BB30 on a Colnago C60 when it arrives?

There are other threads that get into the detail. Not everyone here agrees, but threaded BBs cost more to manufacture and asemble with parts, while BB30 press fit BBs are highly susceptible to creaking. While BB30 let you put a bigger spindle through them, which is a decent advantage, their major benefit is a savings for the manufacturer that downloads hassle to the consumer. If Cannondale had threaded their OS BB ten years ago, we'd all be happily using it today. As it is, it's not good.

Looks incredible! obviously ultra light weight isn't the goal here... flawless performance however... that you should see in spades.
