Here is my new C59 150th Edition. From the launch of this colourway, I have been considering a purchase but as I already had a GDOB version (from 2010) I have struggled to justify it to myself, particularly as I also had a couple of other frames I had been looking to move on for some time. I was aware that the remaining stock of my size available in the UK began to sell through and I decided to act before it was too late. I picked this frame up last month but had to wait a few weeks for the seat post to arrive from Italy. It was clearly a good omen as my other frames then sold within a couple of days of each other! I am still undecided what to do with my GDOB version long term but at least for this year I will have a choice.... :wink:

Sorry for the poor photo....

Beautiful! I would use a black seatpost, stem, saddle and bartape. :-)
What is is the size and how many cm/inch is the seatpost out of the frame?

Rich, that is one ride. Wouldn't change a thing. The 150th C59 has been my dream bike for some time, but way out of reach.

I had forgotten just how nice steel rides until I built this last week.

Ha, a guy with more than average taste! love it Willy, also the rainbow spacers.
However, if nitpicking, I would change the handlebar into a classic shape and the stem is not really the one I would have chosen.
I looked at your photography (and especially liked the neotropical bird pictures, a hobby of mine ;-).

Willy's Master just keeps getting better and better... I even like the gold chain combined with tan sidewalls :thumbup:

+1
I would also replace the shiny rims for a lower profile set in black (like Ambrosio)

Willy, I'd have fav'd it on flickr, but it seems to be restricted?
Great build, but I have to agree with others who thought the rims are a bit too shiny.

Thanks guys...The bike has been thru some changes, initially i had it with full silver athena and deda classic bend bars, selle san marco classic saddle...then i started riding it and decided to make some changes so that it would be equipped just like my c 59, same cockpit and saddle at least, since the geometry is just the same. then record gruppo came, had it with neutrons but decided to give the wider h plus sons a try, they ride very well. if i manage to get a star fork in 1", i'll probably go back to neutrons/hyperons.

I think the frame`s got enough chrome. So the black parts were a step ffwd.

What hubs did you use with the h plus son rims and what is the weight of your wheel set?
