Plastisol, I know the wheels are quite deep- I'll be using them for crits. I'm building up some shallow carbon wheels shortly for everyday use. Shimano on Colnago's always fires people up...I only did it cos I want a power meter that doesn't cost a fortune. I like the contrast offered by the gum walls and it otherwise adds some color to a plain looking (in color) bike.
As to the ride, I've had a c59 before, an EPS before and I have a c40 now... Colnago's are my favourite riding bikes. There might be lighter, stiffer, more technical frames out there but the geometry and ride quality is what I enjoy the most.
Irongatsby, yes I still have the c40 Mapei- although at the moment it's hanging up in my lounge room right now along with my steel tommasini
I haven't got around to ordering the bartape yet, but I know he's under the pump with work...the best thing for me is I'm from the same city he's from. I'll let u know how I go. EPS PRZA
