Thank you all, your posts made me realize that c60 is the best choice for me.
Especially owners from both brands helped me a lot!
Actually, c60 was my choice from the start, but as the time was Close to pull the trigger, I had to check out any other option available.

It sounds like part of the reason that the OP is choosing between these two bikes is that he is getting a good deal, they are in stock at his LBS. I done by anyone is going to get the c64 at a deal anytime soon

We have to wait for a long long time for a good deal on the c64...
Actually I don’t care for the new one since it’s way out of my price range.

C60 owners,
Monday is the big day!
One last thing before I pull the trigger:

I’m 185m
My size is: 56 reach 387 and stack 580
My size in Colnago is 54s* reach 385 and stack 582

What if I went to: 52s* reach 384 and stack 565 ???

(*There’s no option for traditional sizes)

Everyone I talked to (sales reps from major stores) suggested 54s.
But is it so much different from 52s?
Am I missing something?
Thoughts??!

The big differente with 52s I guess is that it’s 2cm higher. Both in frame height (so your seat post shows 2cm longer) and head tube (so you need 2cm more spacers / stem can be 2cm lower). Reach is about the same. The right choice depends on your saddle and stem height...

I'm 179cm and I bought a 52s. There's certainly plenty of extra seat pin to play with though I have it slammed with a 12cm stem. The shop was all for me having a 54 at least whereas I was undecided between a 50 and 52s. It really depends how long and low you want to be. If the smaller frame can fit you then I would always go with that as there are options to start with spacers and adjust everything from there. Too big a frame and you're stuck.

Maybe you can help me on sizing as well. With the new C64 coming out, I’d like to see if I can find a good deal on a C59 or C60. Am between the 52s and 54s.

I want handlebar stack at 633, handlebar reach 462, stem at least 100, saddle height 758, saddle setback -57, handlebar from tip of saddle 519. As I cannot flex so well.

It will look a little ugly, but what’s the best way to go about it here? E.g. positive stem (7 deg) and 25mm of spacers on 52s and 10 on 54s get me sort of close but not 100%. 54s on a 90mm stem and 13mm of spacers is close too but am concerned about riding a stem this short for handling.

I'm the same size as you and I have a 52S. Sure, I could make a 54S work but I straddled a 54S at a bike shop and it just felt like too big of a bike. If they made a 53S, that would probably be perfect but given the choice I'd rather go a touch smaller.

As it is, for my size I think the 52S is very balanced looking as far as how much seatpost is showing.

Hi thanks for the info. I thought about it and I’ll go with the 54s which has (almost) identical stack and reach with my current bike, which I find ok.
