No. That is impossible. They are different. I am sorry to say.

umm no its not impossible at all.

because the photo is taken from the front looking backwards, your eye is lined up with the slope of the font on the right making it look upright, whilst making the left hand side look more italicized than it actually is.

Ok but I still think it looks a bit strange. ;)

You're wrong. It is perfectly fine. Colnago's paintjobs are anything but sloppy.

Yeah? My M10. Painted in the same shop as the C59:

Another C59:

C59 and M10 are handpainted it Italy. No stickers...(except from the Colnago logo in the front) so everyting aren't always in line. It is the "charm" of it. :)

Still love Colnago.

The first time I saw an AD Colnago, I was a cycling n00b, and I also found it gaudy, too many colours and the little rider man cartoonish. Didn't really liked it too much pink and pastels for my taste.

But indeed it grows on you, it is such an iconic design and after a while you just start to love the little rider man.

later I had the winning one on my C-40 LX10, with the fist up, that was such a beautiful bike, but hélas 1cm too short and that for a Colnagoist is too much ;)

Image

I sold it when I got the C-50, mine is a 2009 in ST01, and just after I bought it Colnago put an special edition of C-50s on LX paintjobs for 2010.... but well I had already mine, so there was no justification to buy another just for the paint.... however a C-50 on LX10 on my size was on sale at totalcycling for a loooooong time, tempting me, tempting me.... finally got sold and I was again sooo regretfult not having bought it, today they are simply unobtainable.

But well, seems like the painting skills were lowered by 2010, the C50 LX10 was anyway not as fine as my C40, the C40 airbrush was subtler...

Image

Anyhow, the one I liked reeeeeeaaaalllly a lot was one that SpinDawg from RBR got from Mike, a C-50 on AD10, that is very pretty and an object of desire.... unfortunately Mike doesn't do it anymore.

Image

So yes indeed, a C-59 or better yet a C-60 on AD10 is highly on my want list. next year maybe ?

Colnago is easily my favorite brand, but their paint jobs are hit and miss.

I never liked the rider graphic on the top tube either. Their simpler designs are almost always great and are truly classic (in that they never go out of style). The airbrushed stuff with the gawdy colors, however, just never works for me.

This is the guy that blows in the soul of the C59.

airwise, fabulous machine.

Ditch the idea of a second c59 and get a Campag SRM. You know that makes sense.

I am so glad that Colnago still have direction of their own. Funny artistic bikes!

That Mapei frame does not appeal to me at all. I think the paint scheme is not my cup of tea.
