    I picked up this C59 last year. Apparently it came from the BBox team.
    I always struggle with the internal conflict of solid vs. light. I am tempted to save ~380 grams with some FWB goodies- EE brakes, POP seatpost, Tune skewers and cages and Bungarus cables.
    FWIW- I’ve been a Colnago fan since 1991 as shown in this recent embarrassing photo my dad just sent me.

    How does that sexy beast ride compared to the other bikes you have had?

    Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

    Thank you guys.
    This one is almost perfect. It fits me very well and has ample stiffness and great handling. Its a keeper.
    It is not as supple on dirt roads as the Dogma but it makes up for it in out of the saddle climbing and sprints. It is much stiffer than the Extreme Power all around and way more comfortable in the saddle than the Time RXR though.
    This paint is definitely a head turner, which I dig.
    One piece bar/stem is sexy but beats me up more than the light stem and zipp bar combo but all of my rides are under 3 hours so I can handle it.
