    45s vs 48s handling?

    Looking for a C59 or C60 for my partner. 45s would be better for the height, but 48s for the length. Would need a 12 stem on the 45, 11 on the 48. (short legs, 66 cm saddle height)

    Anyone have any feedback on the comparative experience of riding these? A few mm in the wheelbase, half a degree in the seat angle, but noticeable?

    Thanks in advance.

    My wife has two 48cm Colnagos, one a C59, the other an old Aluminum Dream Plus. Other bicycles have come and gone but those two remain perennials. The old Dream gets surprising use, too.
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.
