Right after we got so excited about Specialized Venge McLaren, here’s the one & only Colnago C59 Italia 80th (8Ottanta) Limited Edition in Malaysia! Bad news is, our crew never even got the chance to check it out because it was sold on the day it arrived! *wails*

We first saw it during Taipei Cycle Show 2012 and have been waiting for it patiently… This bikes retails at MYR61,900/-. Ah, these limited edition stuff is driving us nuts.
This is the bike which Ernesto Colnago created to celebrate his 80th birthday. What better present could he give himself than a special limited edition bike that carries the first Colnago logo that was created in the fifties.
Here are shots extracted from Colnago’s website – click here:
Only 80 of this very special limited edition bike are made and delivered all over the world!
The special bike is called the C59 Ottanta – which means eighty in Italian. It’s a ‘Made in Italy’ bike that is inspired by the past and has an seventies style Arabesque decoration, yet projected into the future because of the Italian technology in its ‘made to measure’ carbon fibre frame and its electronic Campagnolo Super Record EPS 11s groupset.
What is left of the bike now is probably just a poster at ImCyclist (Joo Ngan Son), Damansara Uptown. Sigh.
