    would it be possible to have the fork threaded so to use a quill stem ? then it would be perfect !

    Yep, I'm getting it done this week.

    I will ruin it though by building with dura ace.

    7400 would be fitting.

    I'm selling it, frameset or whole bike if wanted. 57 is not ideal for me, want a 56 to run a longer stem. Would consider a frameset swap for a 56 prbk, prza or pr99 but the other frame would have to be immaculate and only meet up in London so a massive long shot I know!

    It's amazing how such a little difference, like I this case 50 mms has such an effect in the fitting and feel.

    I also tried a 57 but finally went with the 56 on a C50. Excellent fit.

    I don't know how others builders and their customers are just content with 4 sizes.

    Yeah it a real shame but I think best to swap the frame now while it is still like new. I can ride it fine, the fit is fine in regards to contact points but the more I ride the bike the more the feel and handling is annoying me, I don't feel over the front wheel enough and stability of a longer stem would be better. I knew 57 is bigger than ideal when I bought it but it was there ready to buy immediately, I couldn't resist. Thankfully my c59 is a 56.

    Yep, I totally understand. I like a 55 in Colnago sizing which has a 54.3 ETT, but I am comfortable up to a 56 ETT. I'm sure I could ride a 57 Master hub would much prefer a 55, maybe up to a 56 which as you know has a 55 ETT. Still, that pr99 is baaaaaaad to the bone!!!!!

    I sold a nos Master Saronni frameset for almost 3x $600.

    ...and he got a fairly good deal.

    Triple really?!?!?!? No way it was a newer model Master X Lite. Maybe it was an 80's? Regardless, I would have bought it for $600. Sucks I missed it! Where did it happen?

    I priced a 2012 PR99 frameset....holy cow..with Precisa fork it listed for $3,200....best the shop could do was about $400 less.....said the new model year had a significant price increase....sad thing is...I still might buy it....that is one sexy frame.....but once you add some vintage looking athena...polished nitto stem, forks, bar.....nice custome built wheels......a vintage looking, but comfortable saddle....now you're talking some real money....

    For my own Master I went the other route, I just had a new stem made to resemble a quill.

    that is also very nice. but well I guess it is on the details, the slender tubes of a master look more balanced with a slender quill stem and a slender round drops handlebars like this picture ...

    Totally agree, that is the very reason this stem is fillet brazed with 1" diameter steel tubes, 26mm bar clamp and chromed to match the Master's overall aesthetic. It kills me this stem is still sitting on my desk (too busy) and not on the Master already. The black ITM Colnago alloy stem has gotta go!!!
