Somewhere deep in this thread from about 2007 is a former incarnation of this bike. I had some problems with the bottom bracket which consigned the frame to a box for several years. I've now fixed that problem and went with a close approximation of the original threaded Precisa fork. Rides just as sweet if not sweeter with the steel fork over the carbon.

Thanks. Love the pair of white C's you have.
Thank you. Your bike looks great, the way you have coordinated the color scheme. I have heard nothing but good things about the C40.

I am glad to see this thread continuing to thrive...Ernesto has made some beautiful bikes.

Couldn't agree more. There is nothing like riding a Colnago!

Lunga Vita Ernesto!!

Here are my two Colnagos, a C59 and a C60 that I recently bought from Mike Price. BTW, there is a Master AD11 on her way to me (by the end of the year).

sold my C59 .. and built this one

I recently purchased a C60 and am enjoying it quite a bit. I previously had an Extreme Power, EPS, C50 and C59. Of all the Colnagos, the C59 was my least favorite. It was not a bad bike by any measure, but did not feel as good as the others.

My new to me EPS

Replacing my E1 pictured earlier in this thread.

I wanted lugged to see how the design and ride of the C40 has improved over the years. Shopped for a C59, but couldn't turn down a good deal on this one. Really loving it so far!

Here is my new Colnago Master in AD11 color scheme.

Ooops, I am a dunce when it comes to posting pictures. Obviously the first bike is the C59 in PR99 color scheme. Followed by the Master and then the C60.

In any event, the Master rides beautifully, it climbs well and it accelerates almost as fast as the C60.

Thanks Ernesto in Cambiago and THANKS Mike Price aka Maestro in England. :thumbsup:

It's 8 Lbs heavier than my carbon NeiPryde rig, but it sure rides nicer!
