I like you Colnago very much!
But there are 3 things that bother... ;) Sadlle, botllecages and crankset.

Collected mine today - chuffed to bits. It was by far the nicest bike in my LBS, although opinion is divided on my choice of tyres.

Still can't figure out how to post Flikr pictures here - so here's a link with some (if someone can point me in the right direction on how to upload into a forum post I'll upload more here !!).

Colnago C59 Italia NERO 48 Sloping
Campagnolo Super Record Compact (titanium)
Campagnolo Bora Ultra 2's
Fizik Aliante Versus
Lizard Skin DSP tape
Zipp Service Course Beyond Black 100m stem
Zipp Service Course Beyond Black 420m bar
Look Keo Blade Carbon Pedals

I also have to fit the Raceware Garmin 800 bar mount at some point

I'm trying to locate a NERO seatpost, my local LBS haven't heard of them so going to have to try and source myself. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be appreciated.

I'm also undecided about the saddle, but will use it for a while before I replace. I might go for a Prologo Nago Evo (the hard black version) or maybe a Fizik Kurve.

Hopefully the weather will change here in South London over the coming weekend so I can see if I can do 'her' justice.

BxEddie, what's the bar tape you've got on there? Really like the bike and I'm a big fan of the New Ultimate kit.

if someone can photoshop that would help. i will keep the stem and bar black to much white will look cheap.

sastre, your bike looks very good now with black sadlle! :thumbup:
I wonder how it would look with tan sidewall tubs on those high profile wheels... I think it would be a nice contrast....

@JuniorG,

Nice build!
All nice componetns to one integral beauty.

You could make it even more beatiful if;

Swtich the saddle indeed to a Nago Evo, but make it a Nago Nack Evo hard black!
Saves you 70 gr and more carbon (rail) looks nicer ;-)

ANd get rid of the tyres! Get yourself some Ultremo's! Look good, feel good, race good!

ENJOY your bike!

Very nice! That paint scheme looks great. I wish Colnago would produce some C59's inspired by the EP and EPS paint schemes.
