It was love at first sight, the "tri-colore" streaks lashed across the top tube and then running down the fork. It was first seen on the Extreme Power series, then hit the C59 in very limited numbers...but then this came and could not let this unicorn get away like the others.

Teasers are good! But looks like they've got the red and green at the wrong ends on the downtube. D'oh! At least from the drive side, which is the one that counts. It's like when you try to put Italian tri color finishing tape on your bars. One side is italy and the other side is that other country with the same colored flag but reversed. Keeps me awake at night. Lol.
Looking forward to the build.

Yep, I noticed that as well as the past two (Extreme Series/C59) had the flag colors in the right order, however this one does not. I wonder why.... :noidea:

Really? I was sort of joking above. I could see how masking both tubes at once when they're airbrushing the colors on would make it easier. Hmmm, I have a C50 with that type of color scheme which I will have to check in the morning. That's the ST01 color scheme right? Haven't seen a C60 in that before. When can we expect it to be built up?

@Corky, correct... Japan must have some agreement with Colnago for "Japan Specific" colourways and for 2017, the following were announce not to long ago.

@Calnago, my friend actually picked up the flag reversal in comparison to the Extreme Power

As far as the timeline for the build, it will be several weeks as some parts on order are on back order. In the meantime, my old RXR will be dismantled with the following components set for a transplant.

Schmolke TLO 42cm
MCFK 110mm -17 degree stem
THM Clavicula 170
Time Espresso 15 pedals
Ciamillo Gravitas brake calipers with Reynolds Blue pads
AX Lightness Leaf saddle
Lightweight Standards G3

@Corky, not at all! I simply didn't have better pic's to post so I decided to start with a teaser, thats all.

@Look565w, not as excited as I am.. :-D
This design is clearly my favorite and while I found a used C59 in a ST02 livery, I quickly inquired and lifted this frame when I saw the posting on Colnago Japan's website.

@Maverick_1, Yep, my first colnago but definitly not my first Italian bike. In my past, I often rush to build a bike but this one deserves some patience, kind of like when you drink wine one sip at a time just to enjoy its texture, body, characteristics.

Here goes another pic:

I didn't know C60s could be that light. Great frame and great set of components. Nicely done.
