Baby got blue..

So after owning my second favorite C60 color scheme, an opportunity presented itself to own the favorite. This might actually be the first time I've attempted patience with a new build.... which really just meant the frameset was on display in my living room for a week+

2017 C60 PLLB in 50 sloping.

A few wheel iterations already...







And how it sits at the moment:

Hot dam!

I thought this was going to be a post about your wife's Willier...

Perfect build though. Those THM cranks are sweet. And I love the blue/black combo.

Does this mean the white C60 is going somewhere? Did you get the BB noise sorted out?

Can't wait to see this thing in person. I've been nursing a wrist situation and riding the trainer this week, but I should be back in commission and riding in next week - would be good if we could line up some commute add-on miles Tuesday or Friday.

Gotta say the Bora's are probably my favorite, followed by the last picture (are those Reynolds too?)

Definitely my favorite color scheme as well. Dream bike right there!

I am inclined to agree about the Boras. This is the most attractive I've found them. It's a shame they're technically for the wife because she doesn't like me to borrow them for long periods of time

The last photo is with Reynolds 32s. I've got 32s, 46s, and 58s... need to sell at least one set

Hmm... I could maybe make a thread about her bike eventually. The C60 is going away. I have a buddy with dibs on it.

I got hit on the way into work on Wednesday so I'm hesitant to make commitments that center around bike commuting right now. Heading out for a ride later this morning to see if I'm going to be a total scaredy cat...

Dam. That's awful. Hopefully it wasn't too bad. I'm wanting to do a BOTG sometime soon, so maybe we can line that up if you're interested. I've seen some really good rides out in the Washougal area too. Good luck on the ride today!

Looks great! Love the blue color with the Italian flag color accents.

I personally love the wheels from second picture.

Wow

I have an EPS. Love it. But it don't look like this. Hot damn this is smoking. So wish mine was blue or had some sort of blue in the paint scheme. This just became one of my all time favorites on this forum. And that is saying something. This place has an incredible collection of bikes. I may visit this thread every day for the rest of my life. I'm not kidding. And your wheel collection is just ridiculous. Well done. Matthew

Thanks, folks!

The shoes in the second photo are Lightweight ventoux.

Saddle height is 737mm and reach is around 56cm right now I believe.

Forgot to comment on the wheels I prefer. I like the first and fourth pics. Just look right to me. Not that any are poor choices! I just made your first pic my screen saver. Sorry if things are getting a little weird! This bike is just incredible.

For decades, when Colnago gets it right, it (he) really gets it right. And boy, that bike gets it right.

That's a great looking bike. Nice touch with the blue brake pads.

For what it's worth, my fave is with the Boras...Cool wheels that really work!

Great job. Congrats.
