Colnago EPS frame for sale £1100. (new around £3000). Fork and seat post.
Would be willing to consider selling the whole bike for £1600. I am pretty sure it is a 54s frame but can supply any measurements wanted and photos. Very good condition, just a few small paint chips - see photos.

The EPS sits just below the C59 in Colnago's range for 2011 and is an Italian-made, carbon fibre lugged beauty. The frame is constructed from a blend of ultra-high and high modulus unidirectional composite finished with a 3K twill. The down tube has a variable (40mm/35mm) conical shape with internal re-inforcement ribs along its surface to improve the frame's resistance to the stresses encountered under effort . The rear triangle features the tried and tested B-stay and (foglia) leaf shape chain stays providing that fine balance of punchy acceleration combined with the ability to stay composed on poor quality road surfaces.
Frame: Lugged carbon fibre main triangle in a 3K weave. B-stay seat stays and leaf-shaped chainstays.
Fork: EPS fork and C-HS1 integrated headset.
With the impressive launch at the 2008 Tour de France and the continued success of the Colnago EPS in 2009 it remains the top lugged carbon frame made by Colnago in Cambiago, Italy.
The Colnago EPS stays true to the traditions that have made Colnago the most respected bike brand in the world. The EPS is a lugged frame. The C-HS1 (Colnago Headset System) is used on the EPS; it is a tapered fork with a diameter at the base of 1” 1/4 to 1” 1/8.
The geometry and the carbon lay-up guarantee a superior level of handling, power transfer and comfort.
Alessandro Colnago, Signor Ernesto's grandson and marketing director at Colnago told Road Bike Action "For the EPS, we have used a mix of ultra high and high modulus (HHM-HM) unidirectional composite with a 3K twill finish. This frame has an all-new frameset with what we call Multi Shape Tubing-3PRS System; the tubing varys from a special conical toptube with a 40mm diameter at the headtube, which tapers to a 35mm diameter at the seat tube lug, which uses a 31.6mm seatpost like the Extreme Power model. For the EPS downtube, we have a constant diameter of 44mm from headtube to bottom bracket, and have four 3PRS internal reinforcing ribs of varying widths and thicknesses inside the downtube which give exceptional stiffness and power transfer to our new Colnago EPS frame."
Like the new CX-1, Colnago’s Extreme Power Super has the Colnago Headset System, or C-HS, an all-new semi-integrated headset that allows easier assembly and maintenance without removing the entire headset assembly and provides extra stability to the head tube. Colnago has developed a new for 2009 NewStar Carbon fork for the C-HS 1-1/8" 1-1/4" diameter. The NewStar carbon fibre fork offers improved steering & stability thanks to the new fork blade shape and and blend smoothly with the new 1-1/4" diameter of the bottom of the headtube. Colnago Extreme Power Super is available in 14 traditional & 8 sloping sizes as well as custom sizes through a Colnago dealer.
