Colnago C50


Was looking for a bike I can ride in the wet fall months and winter along with a bike I can throw on the train for the deep winter months. Came across this beauty that I wanted to see what the C50 felt like. Not sure what the color code is for this but believe it to be a C50 Strada?

Colnago C50 52s
Full white label Super record group
Berk stem/handlebar combo
Berk Seatpost/Saddle combo
Shamal Ultra 2 way
Vittora Pave 27mm (hope these fit)

More pics to come as the build comes together.

Thanks guys. Slowly building this one up. The "lightening bolts" actually glow in the dark too. Cool little touch for exactly what this bike will be used for. Dark rides after work in the fall/winter months. Looking forward to it!

Yea, didn't think ridding the Crumpton with EPS and carbon Bora Ultra wheels was a good idea on the trainer or new england winter months.

All set and built up. Final weight as pictured 6.81kg, (15.02lbs). Could definitely get her knocking on low 14lbs with ease but love the way she sits now. Very comfortable and feels like an all day bike. This bike will definitely suit its needs. Although, when I was ridding I was thinking this rides too nice to be a foul weather, commuter machine. More like a, grab your best fitting merino kit and head out. Love it! Think I found my perfect two bikes. Crumtpon T5 SL and this Colnago C-50. Smiles for miles!

Cheers
