Colnago C59 Italia PR99 Traditional

The stars aligned and I found a new C59 in traditional geo and my size (57cm) and desired paint. I much prefer the traditional geo and the tubing on the C59 so I passed up my C60. Build will be all Italian - Deda, Campy Rev+ SR11 etc. Will update with more pictures as it progresses.

O man I have wanted a C59 in that paint for so long.

Where did you find it ?

You have to put me down at the TOP of your list when you sell it.

Now I am starting to understand why you help off on the 333FAB frame, well that's ok it allowed me to snag it.

Thx Karl

thats an EPS, not a C59.




Rob, this is going to be super nice. Can't wait to see it fully built.

Thats EPS would be very cool as it will fit wider tires that the C59, its to big for me tho.

Build Complete!

Finished up the build late today with just enough light for a few spins around the neighborhood. Extremely happy the way everything came out. Running a few extra spacers until things shake out and get comfortable with the bike, then will probably add some more drop. Here are the build details:

Colnago C59 Italia PR99 57cm Traditional geometry (NOS)
Campagnolo Super Record Rev+ Shifters/RD/FD
Campagnolo Super Record Ti crankset, 172.5 50/34
Deda Superleggera Carbon bars, 44cm
3T ARXII-Pro -17 stem, custom Colnago graphics
Deda Superleggero RS Carbon 31.6 seatpost
Fizik Antares R1 Versus EVO saddle
EE Brakes
Campagnolo Bora 35 tubular wheel set
Veloflex Arenberg Tires
Powertap P1 powermeter pedals
KMC X11SL chain
Elite Custom Race Cages

15# 12oz as currently built...

Fan-flipping-tastic!

Love that colorway and the SR11 looks great with it and the Deda bits.

Looking good! Please let me know how you like that saddle! I’m thinking about ditching my C15 for it...

Gotta be one of my favorite Colnago colorways of all time. Will never go out of style.
@KarlC: tire clearance is the same on EPS and C59. Limiting factor is the fork and they share the same fork, with the exception of maybe the very last run of the C59, when they gave the fork a bit more clearance. But they didn’t touch the rear, so then that became the limiter.
