    At last a tastful Colnago, shame it costs so damn much. I think a Colnago would make a great next bike; Italian quality brand, no one in the club has one, it’s just a shame their technology is a bit dated on some lower models and they insist with terrible paint schemes.

    i agree paul.

    colnago have a funny range of bikes with dubious colour schemes. it feels like they want to be retro and modern so they met in the middle.

    my feeling is that they make expensive bikes, trading on past glories and have not invested in the r&d that other companies have.

    still, i’m a sucker for matt black bikes at the moment :-)

    I’m not normally that keen on black bikes. I think I prefer those dubious colour schemes :) .

    But that’s a cracker

    Nice bike indeed.

    I wonder if, as a brand, Colnago have the worst ratio of ‘paying for the brand’ to ‘paying for the technology’?

    I have had a couple of Colnagos in my time. They do ride very well, and handle beautifully. BUT they are expensive for what they are. It comes down, I am afraid to say, to the paint job and whether you buy into the image. The current paint schemes are, IMO, fugly. But if you go a few years back, they were gorgeous.

    Having said all that, is there that much of a difference between any of the high end carbon fibre bikes? You either get duped by the “technology”, the history, the areodynamics, grade 75.1 carbon fibre weave, whatever. We are suckers, all of us.

    Good to have you back. I think I may have seen you last weekend on 24th with the Bigfoot level 5 guys by Dormansland. I was trundling slowly by in the opposite direction, worrying about the Marmotte.

    I’ll second the ‘we’re all suckers’ comment :-) .

    Alas not me on the 24th. I’ve managed one decent ride outside in 7 weeks – on the 23rd. Which was murder.

    It’s hard to be worried about the Marmotte just yet – though racing in 6 weeks time is a bit daunting.
