Got back on WW when searching for information about Campy DM brakes. Then I saw the In Memoriam.... :(
Sad to read, RIP Cal.

Everyone was born - and everyone will die.

The ONLY difference is what we do in between.

Use your life as good (quality) as possible

RIP Calnago! It seems he used his life the way he wanted

Welcome! That’s a nice build you have there, very “clean”. I’d ride that. What size is the frame if I might ask?... I’m guessing a 58s, possible 56s. Although my guess could easily be reversed as a 56s, possibly a 58s. And what’s that saddle height if you mind me asking. Need to know so we can potentially swap bikes next time I’m in Italy :) .

RIP Calnago... after years away, I was researching a new bike purchase; stumbled on his C64 topics, and realized that he is OCD perfectionist and able to know 50 different quality shades. Retrieved my password, logged in to ask him advice on buying a Colnago V3rs, and found this topic insteqd.... A true loss for everyone, especially countless riders that listened to his advice and now have positive riding experiences...

His Trek Koppenberg topic was the reason I joined WW forums. His knowledge, writing skills and tongue-in-cheek tone made for very enjoyable reading.
Ride In Peace.

Yesterday, for the first time ever since 1954, Colnago won a Tour de France. Pogačar was riding a V3Rs.

Sometime watching the tour I remembered all the passion that Calnago put on his bikes and I felt a bittersweet moment when I saw the young Slovenian on the top of the podium.

Maybe Cal was watching these guys from somewhere. Miss you, Cal!

Just want to add my condolences. It's been a year or two since I posted here and I can't believe that he's gone - an incredible contributor to this forum with the most intricate knowledge of bikes of anyone I have ever come across.

Wow, somehow I missed this thread.....longtime lurker/infrequent poster, but always appreciated Cal's insights, especially as they related to Trek Koppenberg/Classics. We should all aspire to live our lives in a way so that as many people post condolences as we have for Cal.....12 pages!! Truly amazing for someone that none of us ever met in the flesh but felt like we knew for many, many years. RIP Cal.....
