    You could have to build the front end up a bit then. My saddle height is 1mm lower than you and I got fitted on a 56 C59 with a 120 stem and compact bars, could have gone for a 55 or 57 though. I'm 178 tall with a shorter torso proportion obviously. I worked out with my fitter I'd have about 20mm of spacers to get my 95mm drop to bars. I fleetingly thought about a 57 to get a more slammed front end but think the 56 was the best compromise of fit (spacers/saddle setback) and handling as I'd prefer to get more weight over the front wheel, indeed mike @ maestro who I've ordered from didn't even consider a 57 for me. If I was more flexible I'd probably go for a 55.

    You could email him I'd imagine he would be able to help you as he sells these bikes all day long and was pretty sharp on the fit for me. I worked it out by first setting up a 52s and then running through with my fitter using my current setup. I asked mike his opinion to double check and he was pretty spot on in what he said. Sounds like the front end stack is the decider for you.

    I have read quite a few praises for Maestro on this forum. Did you order the frame or the complete bike? How do you deal with warranty issues on components?

    I think you should go 57 ( or even 56) if you wish to have a racing fit/low bars, and 58 for a more relaxed fit.

    Where are you looking for your frame? I still see many NOS C50s on the Market.

    I could buy a 56 C50 on LX10, 2010 version but I did pass on it and now that is sold I regret it.

    I tend to think the same. My thanks to all who have chimed in on my questions.
    I've been looking predominantly on the web. Extremely limited supply on hand in brick and mortar stores in my area.
    The LX10 is one of the classics; I know of one but unfortunately is not your size and it's on an EPS (54t). However if you are interested, I will be glad to pass along the link.

    RA Cycles has some on sale....

    and about the LX10 C50, it was not as beautiful as my C40, that is what made me hesitate, you see better detail and care on the C40, when I finally decided to buy it and sell mine it was gone.

    however, if I ever see another NOS I will get it

    I know this post is old and the OP probably has figured out what to get already by now. But I've just found a nice article on Colnago fitting that may answer future questions others have regarding the same topic

    Yeap, a lot has happened since last September. The article hits spot on some of the concerns I had about the fitting process. The most elusive part in ordering a Colnago remains finding a demo to ride, at least on this side of the pond!

    C59 classifieds ?

    Hello, I have a C59 that I want to post for sale in the classifieds.

    I tried to post the ad 2 times and when I hit "post" the ad seems to disappear when the page refreshes.

    Can someone help me out and tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks!

    Maybe your post count is to blame?
    What size, what groupo and where are you located?

    Saw your ad. This is the size I'm looking at. Too bad you are 1200 miles away. Try resizing the pics; not sure if thats the problem though. Good luck with the sale.

    I'm curious, why would you want to sell such a fantastic frame? The C59 is the best frame I have ridden, and I've ridden a lot over the years. Just curious as I say ...
