My sore body wasn’t liking the idea of riding gravel today so instead I joined some friends for an easy caféride around Vaxholm. Went up a bit earlier to finish my cafébike:
My Colnago C40 is finished! 7,16kg Italian beauty that rode like a dream. The C40 was the first carbon fibre bike in the pro peloton and was around from 1994 to the latest version (mine) in 2004. So how good is a 13 year old roadbike? It’s really good, really happy with how it felt.
Built with some of my favorite components like:
Campagnolo 11-speed group
Deda Newton Shallow handlebar
Specialized S-works Toupe saddle
Specialized Turbo tubulars
Time Xpresso pedals
Fizik Superlight 2mm bartape
and always tuned with some light parts like Tune U20 QR, Specialized titanium bottle cage and Engage Gavial brakes.
A success includes great friends and a good guide:
A great recovery ride with beautiful views and ferries:
It’s nice sometimes to be a bit classic and think that style more prioritized than performance. Just plain simple like white socks 😀
