I have a 56 Supersix, with a spacer giving a head tube height of 18cm, but in my younger days would have had a 56 with a slammed stem. I'm 180cm. BB to top of seat 77.5cm

majklnajt - I know your dying to show more seatpost, so maybe a 54 for you :D

Now you are just showing off!

I forgot to mention that my stem is 25mm long and my saddle is flush against the seat-tube......
Is that wrong? :mrgreen:

You could easy do 52 with a long stem, for that pro look. A 54 could be good also.
But imo not 56, it would be to big

Yes i know, and someway you make it look right, i really think so!
But we all know that a man who is 176 tall, shouldn't ride a 57...
And all that about showing your seatpost, we heard about that for some time now :wink:
I like your Colnago more than anyone (It is legendary) i just think you should try a smaller bike, and i think you would like it to, my friend :D

Dont worry my friend, I understood your tone ;)
To be honest, this time I would sell it mostly because I need the money... :?
The seatpost doesnt matter in this moment ;)
My friends are telling me that I should at least keep the frame.

Guys, sorry for off topic!

You must have either stumpy legs or arms or both! :P

I have stupid long monkey arms, TP can corroborate. But somewhat short legs, and ride my cleats pushed far back.

This is true.

KW missed his calling, should have been a goal keeper.

Picked this up on ebay for a bargain price, plenty of upgrade potential, but for now it will be the winter warrior.
