Strengths:    My dream bike. Very smooth and stable on descents. Classy look.

Weaknesses:    Absolutely none

Bottom Line:   
Have owned and ridden many bikes. Recently decided to start buying, building up, and trying out several bikes But, all the while, wanted to eventually end up with a C-50 Colnago. Just a very classy look and, from what I have heard, a very comfortable ride. At 59 with multiple bones breaks, back surgery, and arthritis, I needed a comfy ride. I still like an occasional road race and do a lot of club rides with my wife, so I am not ready to hang it up yet. We do about 100 miles a week.

I ran across a barely used EPS and bought it. Built it up some. There went my idea of trying out numerous bikes. No sense in doing that as I love this bike. I can not imagine finding anything that suits me better. I love the ride and the looks. It is the black with red/orange ovals (NS03) paint job.

I know others may disagree, but this is the one for me.

I have a hilly race coming up and want to put on a 12-29. Has anyone done this combination on 11-speed EPS or non-electronic systems? Campy documentation says EPS can handle a 29t.Read More »

How difficult is it to switch internal Di2 to internal Campy EPS wires?

I'm getting a Time frame that is currently wired for Di2 7970 (internal). I haven't received it yet, but how difficult is it usually to switch to another cable set, probably EPS? I'm not exactly new to cycling, but I don't have a lot of experience with internal cabling, especially internal for e ... Read More »

EPS Record Shifting Issues

Having an issue with my EPS Record shifting. When I ride the bike and do not shift it struggles to shift up to the fourth cog from the top. It does make it but its very noisy. Cass 11 -25. But once I keep shifting it will shift up and down to 4 cog from top with no problem. Then if I ride and do not ... Read More »

EPS charger problems

I have 2013 Athena EPS which I'm very happy with, but I have just blown my second charger, which im less happy with. First one replaced under warranty, but after the second one has gone I'm thinking matte there is either a faulty batch, or my power unit has a fault which is blowing the chargers. ... Read More »

Cracked EPS?

I have a 2011 EPS with a crack right where the headtube and toptube join. Has anybody else seen this before? I wonder if it's just a paint crack and if the bike is safe to ride. The frame hasn't been crashed and probably has less than 10,000 miles on it. I sent an e-mail to colnago a week ago bu ... Read More »
