Hi all!
I'm Riccardo from Italy.

Ok, that's nice. Personally, I don't 'get' 1x for road, but the bike looks great.

I'm not exactly a huge 1xer.... but that bike looks solid

Great! Amazing bike!
Se mi garantisci che il monocorona fa andar così forte lo metto su anche io ;-)
Could let me your impression to the downhill?
It's too short 44-9?

Like the frame colour and really like your aggressive position but SRAM, discs and x1 on a Colnago seems almost criminal! Not for me.

Love the colours.

Like others I'm not convinced by 1x on a bike like this. Nor discs. However, despite that you've still made a really good looking build.

Huh?

44x9 is a bigger gear than 53x11.

But, he’s on 40x9, which is a much shorter gear.

Grazie! :wink:

40-9 is quite similar to 50-11, so I never had particular problems during downhill or high speed; a 42t is also good. Obviously, with 1x and 11s you have to get used to the gears gap, but after some days I was "paired" with it; I really love the simplicity of 1x and I will build my next C64 with it again (maybe an etap or di2).

I’m not a fan of discs, SRAM hydros or Lightweights......but all of that together is somehow really working for me, sexy!!

How does the 9t feel on the back?

I looks like a high end gravel bike to me... I still like it

I think the next bike will be built with a custom clincher/tubeless wheelset and shimano di2 or etap disc (always 1x, I love it).

9t is not so "round", but is useful only not to spin empty and lose the wheels in front of me ;-)
But I used it only during the descents, difficultly in flat sections. I'm not a sprinter :noidea: :lol:

Cool man, I wonder if 10t is maybe the min we should be going on the road, like you say, bail out gear to hold the wheel! I do like my 1x11 crit bike but I’ve not had it on a proper group ride on the road yet...

Yep, I think the best choice could be a 10-36 with a 44t on the front... And maybe with 12 speed asap!! :mrgreen:

This year i raced very much with my 1x, always using 40t and 9-32, 9-34 and 9-36; but my favourite choice was the 9-36, despite of the gears gap (I usually don't take care about that). In racing mode, and in group ride, I love very much the semplicity of the 1x and its "speedy shifting".
