I love my C60 but just wondered if anywhere knows any retailers that still have stock of C59's in but at a competitive price? I'm not really in the market for a new frame to replace one of my others (especially not the C60!) but just wondered as the C60 is the newest model, it seems that the old stock of C59's seems to disappear off the face of the earth. What happens to the old frames?!

They were all bought already? Dude - the C60 has been out for a while now, and it's not as if there would have been a huge overstock of the C59 to begin with. There might be a very few dotted around still but expecting there to still be a freely available supply of new frames is a bit optimistic.

Thank goodness I've the C60 then dude. Was just wondering as there must be quite a few unsold C59's going for a song somewhere.

You'll see a few pop up on eBay every now and then. Prices are often unrealistic IMO, like "retail $6000, now $4000".

What size are you looking for? The Thailand dealer here has 4 frames left in stock for clearance. I was looking at the C60 until the staff showed me their C59 Nero now I can't make up my mind.

R&A Cycles still advertises C-59 models in a few sizes and colors.
