Strengths:    Handmade in Italy in Ernesto's basement.
Light, stiff and 100% perfect.
Looks fast standing still.
Actuall y is fast.


Weaknesses:    Let's face it, the C59 is one of the best bikes in the world...so its' expensive but its' excellent in every way and darn...it's really sexy.

Bottom Line:   
This bike will make you a better rider...faster and better because it demands to be ridden that way.
It climbs and descends with conviction and stability, a testament to it's careful, unique build.
Hours in the saddle just fly by.
Shifting is flawless and perfect...every time.
It weighs 15.6lbs (incl. pedals) with DA Di2, compact crank, Artemis 50mm wheels, Conti 23mm tires, FSA bar and stem and Colnago post and Romin carbon saddle.

Bottom line: Master builder, awesome bike. The C59 is to biking what Porsche is to automobiles...enough said.

Strengths:    Ride it all day - stiff, comfortable, light, forgiving, fast, assured. High price delivering unbelievable form and function.

Weaknesses:    Omertà ;-). There are none.

Bottom Line:   
The only mistress I'm allowed. The only bike mentioned in my will. Svelte lugged 52s frame, reinforced in all the right places, beautifully finished with a rock hard clear lacquer over exquisite carbon weave and flashes of black, dark silver and fluoro yellow (ref GDBY). Add Shimano's new 7970 Di2 which now instantly puts power to the rear wheel and some ultra stiff Wheelworks custom built carbon hoops and this bike rips it - in rain or shine, ascents, descents, straight, corners or corrections, over ruts, across cattle stops and judder bars, on pavement, gravel, dirt or bricks, whatever the wind, whatever the time. Just amazeballs.
