Colnago C59 Disc AD10
Name: P.R.’s Climber
Measurements: She’s a Colnago C59 disc in a 52sl that was meant to climb. She sports Shimano road hydraulic brakes with her XTR di2 front and rear derailleurs and mixes in with that her SRAM XX1 cassette and her Lightning Crank with 44/30 rings. She wears a cockpit from Zipp and her wheels are Lightweight’s Meilenstein Obermayer Schwartz Edition with white spokes.
Likes: She loves the challenge of steep climb, and with her gearing, she can make it up most goat trails.
Dislikes: Her biggest dislike is the rain. While riding in the rain in the French Alps she slipped on some train tracks and took down the Lion of Flanders. She’s been a bit cautious of the wet weather ever since.
Ride Quality: Her smooth ride quality is a given but her ability to crawl up the steepest mountain without tiring her rider out is her secret weapon. Something about her climbing gears helps her to channel the spirit of the Alpine Mountain goat.
Favorite Route: Ever since her wreck in the Alps near Lake Geneva, she’s been eager to go back and redeem herself. And she’d love to log of few more climbs under her belt while she’s there.
