A while ago, I got the very special opportunity to shoot #2 of the special 60th edition Colnago C60. Built up with full-on Campagnolo Super Record 11s mechanical (what else?) and Bora Ultra tubulars, it’s also specced with custom Colnago-branded bottle cages and full-carbon saddle. When I put it into my car to drive to location to shoot, the value of my car doubled. That was fun.
A lot of fun to shoot. The light wasn’t perfect, but I love the setting, and I was happy to find the location.
The money shot.
This is a really comfortable saddle and totally saves 100 grams, too!!!!!!
The C60 is a lugged frame
Of course, the plaque has to be in Italian.

Does Campagnolo’s four-arm crank design and long-lever-arm front mech redesign seem familiar?
A phat bottom bracket
My favorite shot of the bunch.
Rag on Campy all you want, they do make nice stuff.
A bottle cage fit for a $16,000 bike.
Signed by Ernesto himself.
Not a straight block, but we’ll forgive
Campy Skeleton brakes with carbon pads for the Boras
Perhaps the most ergonomic brake levers of the Big Three, but maybe not the most easy-to-use, especially in the drops.
The silver/black gets really edgy
Whatever you think of them as a bike brand nowadays, this is a name that carries a lot of history
