    Gotta say, looks like a better size than your old one.

    Yes i have seen that video and have "favorite" it in my Youtube. It's cool to see the steps taken in painting that exact color scheme.

    Yes the size is much much better. It's pretty much the same size and measurement as my LOOK 586 that I am comfortable on.

    Completed the build. Not exactly period correct but I'm extremely happy with the results. Repainted (before my purchase) 1985(?) Colnago Master, 2001 Campy Chorus 10 speed (from my Waterford), Brooks Titanium Swift (from my 2006 Colnago E-1) & DT hubs with Open Pro 32 spoke wheels (from my 2005 Specialized S-Works Roubaix).
    The Master rides very smoothly, is very fast & gets numerous compliments for its looks.
    I have several high end carbon bikes but there's something special about the ride of a quality steel bike. I'm not quite ready to sell all my "plastic" bikes, but almost.

    too bad the saddle is hanging out there, even tough it is nicely positioned to the frame......maybe get a shorter stem and straight seatpost?

    The bike fits like it was custom made for me. The saddle is almost all the way back on the rails. I don't think I'll change a thing.

    i'm not surprised by the look of the setup and how the contact points are compared to the frame but That saddle looks way forwards on the seatpost clamp and must be taking alot of stress on its rails...just saying that as a matter of fact

    Beauty!

    I'll agree with FrenchNago the bike would probably fit you with a shorter stem and you could get the saddle a little more centered.

    Anyway, if you like the fit and and ride, that is the main thing.
    We internet geniuses love to fit bikes with riders we never see or know anything about!

    Got a pair of Reynolds Assault carbon clinchers for the EPS. It looks sexy! I rode the bike today with these wheels and I am very happy with them.

    yea, awesome bike. I love traditional colnagos with longer stems and a bit more post showing. Looks great and as per all colnagos I am sure it rides nice.

    I presume you've scene the video where they build that model frame and then do that paint job - real artisan work.

    Very nice. I have one too, but I was told it was an Ovalmaster. Although it does say "titanio" on the seatstay. I call mine my Jeans bike, as it fits as comfortably as a pair of jeans.

    2008 C50 with 2012 Campy Record

    Finally finished my 2008 C50. I decided to go with 2012 Campy Record, to match the gruppo on my 1999 C40. The rest of the component list:
    - FSA OS99 CSi stem/handlebar
    - Hand-built wheels with HED C2 Belgium rims, black bladed Sapim spokes, Record hubs
    - Specialized Toupe Expert Plus saddle
    - Speedplay Zero pedals

    Compared to my C40 the bottom bracket area is so much stiffer, as well as the front end. That makes the C40 a bit more comfortable but I definitely prefer the C50 because of the increased stiffness. The bike isn't particularly light, in that area Colnago can improve: I don't think this frame is state of the art like it was in the 90s. Loving it anyway because it's a Colnago.

    great bike great build.......when the c50came out and for the following years until the extreme c and extreme power it was the master of its class.....now its a bit dated in some peoples opinion but remember they were on the catalog until 2007/2008 at least (until 2010 in the US I believe)
    even today a good rider on a c50 can inflict some massive hurt on equivalent riders on recent frames thanks to its resilience on all sorts of terrain........true to many colnago frames....
