Bike Check: Colnago C59 Disc
This time, gone is the rim-braked Pinarello from Road Bike Party and in is the world’s first production disc-braked carbon fibre road racing bike, and bicycle equivalent of a Ferrari: Colnago’s C59 Disc. Besides the addition of hydraulic disc brakes, it’s the same frame raced by France’s Thomas Voeckler in the Tour de France.

In contrast to the original film – which used a completely stock Pinarello Dogma 2 – Martyn felt that the riding demanded some choice modifications, chiefly in the brake department to boost power and control to allow him to be able to really push his riding. In order to do this, some choice modifications were made (see annotations). This all pushed the bike’s total value to £15,000 ($24,500) approx.

Despite the tough treatment that was handed out to the bike, the only mechanicals incurred throughout were – amazingly – punctures, and one brake line that pulled-out as a result of a crash.

There seem to be a lot of s-works bikes around that Morgan Hill area. (Specialized has their offices there). Both those bikes are insanely nice.

Bought from one current and one former Specialized employees. Feel so lucky to score them for real fair price.

Living in Trek Land, I see their stuff pop up on the rare occasion. They do employ someone to specifically scour Craigs List and ebay for employees trying to make a buck, though.

Bikes

Both bikes are three years old, and well kept. I have to say the 29er is the fastest bike I've ever had ! For the last six years I have been at the back of the group I ride with, now with the 29er I get in the lead at times

Great bike, but a "Dropper" seat post makes very little sense, just sell it and get your self a nice thomson master piece or even better a TI or even carbon post..

Wife gave me it for Xmas, so won't be selling. Probably for most it won't make sense. For the trails I ride its nice. I can rail the tight switchbacks way better with it and the technical descents are more fun. I'm no racer, just for fun.

Actually it makes more sense on that bike. I had a similar situation on an Epic. I was having a lot of difficulty on steep downhills and drop offs. The geometry is so steep it wants to pitch you over the bars. I was getting pretty fed up with the bike and was going to sell it and get something more laid back. But I liked the bike for climbing general riding. The dropper post sealed the deal, the bike does everything now. When I had relaxed geometry bikes, I did not feel the need to drop the post because the bikes are stable on steep terrain.

Excellent argument too...

I have four Droppers (1 reverd, 1 command and two Joplin's) that I only use on my "aggressive" bikes, actually I do have one on my fatbike that make sense since the saddle end up super high do to the fat wheels, so I understand the use on a more cross country machine specially if they are heavy already..

Sorry Ricky, I am going to have to disagree with you on this one.
just 5km from my home, the tracks for the UCI mountain bike Australian course are open for use now and I there are many spots where you need to get over the back, and for me, the seat is in the way, yet for other times you need the seat just right for the climbing and sprint.

I used to think that droppers were a fad as well, but now, seeing the course and the challenges, it looks like it is almost nessecary.

not the clip i was actually looking for, but a sample of the trails that we have
