Question for the group - anyone have a line on a good place to get additional bottle cage hardware for the C64? Any leads appreciated! Thanks.

What do you mean by bottle cage hardware? Some spacers between the mounting holes and the frame for the recess in the downtube so that the sides of the bottle cage will clear it? If so, then the little valve nuts that come with any innertube work perfectly. Other than that, I’m not sure what you could mean by “bottle cage hardware”.

Sorry for the delay...I thought there was included with the frame washers for the purpose of making cages that don't fit, fit. Maybe I'm mistaken!

Either way, thanks for the reply.

Just joined to thank Calnago & others contributing to this thread for all the comments and insights.

Realized I probably been lusting after a Colnago for over 30 years and so decided to get myself a C64d as a retirement present to join my 20 yo Calfee TetraPro (with 1” steerer whose stem is now a bit too low for me following way back threadless conversion and cannot be upgraded past 10spd) and 10 yo Parlee Z3 (which is maxed out at 25mm tires) in the garage.

Ordered end of June -- anyone know how long the factory shuts down for holidays?

Cheers

Thought I would post an update (finally). It has been 12 was since I posted a picture of the C64 that I received after an accident. As was pointed it it was far to small for my 6ft5' height. After some back and forward emails with the insurance company and a ride with so much numbness in my hands I could hardly steer they agreed to replace the frame. Given the size was not stocked I had the 12 week wait. At times it felt very long but after my maiden voyage today it has been worth it. This machine feels incredible and rides like a dream

Thanks for the advice on here to help me get the correct size.

Perhaps unrelated question...
I have a C60 48s and I use about 1.2cm of spacer on my head tube.
I’m going to put an order in for a c64. Am I better off getting a “high” geometry?

Hi,if you just used 1.2cm spacers i think there is no need to go with a high geometry frame

Hello all, I'm a new member that had just ordered a C64 and ran into this fascinating thread by Calnago, love all the detail and thanks for going to all that effort! I'm awaiting delivery of my frameset in mid December and still debating some build choices, will post pics and details if people are interested. In an earlier post on page 8 a member named jimaizumi mentioned that he was looking for an EPS PRZA, the Zabel with the beautiful Milram blue and white panels. It's a 50S. That's the bike I'm looking to sell either as a frameset or with a Super Record (2015 vintage) gruppo, minus wheels. Saddle & Look pedals are optional depending on buyer and price.
Thanks.

Thanks for liking the thread. You should post that EPS PRZA in the For Sale section. I love that color.

Will do! I'm still waiting on some parts to swap in & some out to my new one. I decided to sell it as a complete bike so I'll post the sale when it's all checked out and ready to go. Thanks for the advice.

P.S. the color is unique and very difficult to capture in pics, has to be seen in the flesh to really appreciate it. I may change my mind and keep it you never know lol!

Apparently I'm unable to respond to pm's since I'm new and don't have enough posts. I couldn't respond to a question from Tam. If anyone is curious about my Zabel I live in Gainesville Florida. Thanks.

Hi Cubano,
The PRZA is a beauty. Unfortunately I am on another continent but I am sure somebody stateside will take it off your hands!

No worries Tam, I'm certain also, if not I don't mind hanging on to it. It's ok to have more than one Colnago right?
