That is one heavy fork if thats true! What I am reading and am guilty of myself is that the latest is typically the greatest. Sweet bike though. You are right- the EC has a different purpose than the 595.
Both are very special companies and make a range of high end bikes for different purposes. These are better comparisons.
Look 586=Extreme C
Look 595 Ultra= Extreme Power
Look 595 Origin= C50

On flats, I am so much more confident of my pedal power stroke. The Colnago at speed is so much faster, more stable, yet even more comfortable. The frame seems to be begging me to torture it with more pedal power and if it could talk...probably trash talk me by laughing..."is that all you have son???!!!!! you pansy!!!!"

On climbs, forward up the hill motion are so much more smoother and its transfers every last ounce of energy from BB / pedals to crank to chain rotation to turning of gears.

I only did a frame change, swapped the campy record groupset and wheels from the LOOK 595 over to the Colnago.

Only complain is that the extreme C is about 600g or so more heavier than the LOOK with the same setup. Can't explain why...but I do know the Colnago star carbon fork in my hand felt like it weighed a brick and a half.


I lol'd. Fair enough if you like the Colnago, but this is utter BS.

Just checked with the LBS....my saddle is an 08 model with the red threads trimming. 07 is all white threads.
