Colnago sizing query

    Potentially looking at older steel frame but not sure on sizing.

    Are the measurements on colnago size charts centre to top, as opposed to centre to centre?

    All the (older) frames are traditional/non-compact and so there isn't much difference between C-C and C-T..............but in any case, I'd judge fit on effective top-tube length, not on the seat tube.

    Most Italian frames were measured CTC.

    If you’re worried about fit the top tube length is probably more important than the seat tube.

    Best thing to do is ask the seller to measure accurately.

    These guys usually know their stuff. Guy on here says Colnago was CTT
