and a short ps...i've found a front derailleur hanger that should work, but wonder what people who have these frames use...the one i found is a generic kinda thing...i wonder if campy makes 'em, shimano?...maybe someone who designs them so they are efficient and not too likely to damage the seat tube...

thanks

Use whatever is the correct size for the frame and for brand of front derailleur you plan to utilize.

Just took out my Look 595 after about a yr of it sitting on trainer. Riding Reynolds DV46-UL tubulars the bike reminded me of all the reasons I got it in first place. Quick, stiff and just a tad twitchy, which was perfect for racing.

Yes, it is not a 585, but pretty darn close.

Not racing anymore and have a C60 as the ride you'll usually find me on. The reason I went back to Colnago was the desire to have a more relaxed, predictable, stable ride. It doesn't have that twitch and quick jump but it is a magic carpet ride of a bike.

Interesting to note, both are externally lugged, finely crafted.

I love them both but for completely different reasons.

Lugged Carbon--Serotta

Great thread, makes me want a Look! If you can find the right one, a Serotta Mei Vici or HSG can be a great lugged carbon bike.

I’m not looking for anything at the moment, but if a Meivici or HSG in VGC or NOS in 57 became available I’d have a hard time saying no. Those were real head turners.

I have a Meivici that I have been too lazy to post up for sale. Maybe slightly big but here is the geometry.

Thanks! I think there were a few made with shorter head tubes and that’s what I’d be looking for. I’m mostly a level top tube guy. The HGS had some too.

Mr. Porter,
Whew! Great looking ride and I love the color! I presume this is a deep burgundy and not brown? Man that is sweet, thanks for the post.

The color is definitely a burgundy, not a brown, though in some light it can look brown. Serotta called it Tempranillo, like the Spanish grape/wine.
