Finally managed to see a few C60 frames in the flesh, and I like it a lot.

To be fair, after spending a few moments checking the C60 out, I went to see a C59 on display a few meters away, an found the C59 really skinny, almost 'retro' looking.

My final take: the C60 is a very nice, modern looking frame, whilst still keeping the classic lugged construction. It's keeping up with the times, as quite a lot of other top end frames have oversized tubes too. I personally think that it's more aesthetically pleasing than the C59, but I know it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea.

A classic in OFCG colour 52s for me please.

The BB is made for OverTorque Cranks right ?

If I want to mount UltraTorque Cranks I do need an adapter ?

Interesting. Still haven't seen a C60 close up but remember seeing one of the first C50's in the country (I had a C40 at the time) and thinking "Wow, those tubes are fat". Déjà vu.

Wow! That red scheme is amazing. Best looking professional bike I've seen in years.

As far as I know all you need to do is get the Campag press fit cups (to replace the thread ones) and install the cranks as usual.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong!

I love lugged frames one of the main reasons I went with a c59 for me the tubes just are not nice to look at ott but love the rear drop outs and the fork looks nice. I want to see a 27mm in the back though bigger is better as they say. I've about 4mm between a 25mm fmb at the moment really would love a 27 in there :thumbup: but not a chance in hell. does the mich tyre measure 23mm.

The Colnago website really doesn't do justice to the paint schemes. Found a few nice pictures on the web, which I'd like to share

Nope, you need a workaround for OT cranks. Ask Madcow.

For UT, you need the 86.5x41 Integrated Cups:

Folks, the BB on the C60 is BB86, ie, optimized for 24mm spindles. Not a 30mm friendly frame, but if you like Rotor cranks...

Thanks nobrakes for the pics. That's a beautiful looking frame. I would hate to own one like that and see the first scrrtch.

Has anyone seen a C60 traditional yet? Every single frame I've seen is sloping.
Long live the horizontal top tube, standard crankset, and Italian threaded bottom bracket.

I heard they won't even be producing any traditionals till the fall at least.

From 14 traditional sizes to 5? Largest traditional is 61? I'm just going off their published geometries, but... Bummer.
