As most of you know I am not a big fan of Carbon Fibers. I know that they are strong, light,racey, light, and more light. I just don't care for such construction. I am aware that Carbon Fibers will not go away and at some point they will take over the world. I guess working as a mechanic I see all the things that go wrong. Mainly a lot of creaking, popping and noise making. These repairs are losers for us since it takes a long time to find where the noise comes from and we never get compensated enough for our time. I despise a lot of bikes with internal routing. I don't think you should take the bike apart, have surgical hooks and a headlamp to replace your stupid derailleur cable. I also despise all the new Bottom bracket standards that each company uses and pushes. All those bearings don't last and get shitty. A Chris King Bottom bracket in an english shell is priceless.
Yesterday arrived a box with words in Italian. Chris' new Colnago C59 had finally arrived. We carefully opened the box and unveiled a montruous Colnago. This bike is lugged carbon, has internal ridges for strength and safety, the fork is incredible and the bike should ride like magic. At close to 6k retail I will NEVER have one but will get a chance to test ride it once done. I am very impressed with this frame and it is like nothing I have seen before. Congrat to Chris for getting the most of the most of Carbons. If you desire such a pony let us know. We can get you hooked up.
