Not a big fan of aero bikes but I'm really curious how this turns out

Saw one in the flesh yesterday, looks better up close than i expected. There are a lot of design elements I find aesthetically offensive but it is nicer in reality.

I'm sure it will be a great ride and would like to see some built up pics.

Hope you love it.

Saw one on display at Apex Velo just outside Boston last weekend and snapped a pic of it (with my bike which, frankly, looks rather modest here).

I love the Firefly! Colnago is a little "bling" for me.

I understand that CHDB was done for the Japanese market who are really huge fans of Colnago. Don't know how true this is. A rare masterpiece

Will be an iconic beautiful built.
the Shape of the frame is very nice.
I think I start to like this more than the Canyon Aeroad.

Oh nice! That bike complements the C60 you have hanging on the wall.... Definitely a nice frameset but a bit puzzled why Colnago still has yet to release the matching and semi-integrated stem and bars.

The weight is indeed on the heavier side but who knows if the ride qualities make up for the weight.

Looking forward to the completed build. :beerchug:

Yeah the matching paint Stem and Bar combo is a special order only that cost $499. I'd probably stick with the Superzero for now for adjust-ability on fitting, also cheaper and lighter.
