Sorry, but in my opinion, just an expensive, snobish, trendy bike.

Lot of coin. Could understand if it was for a collection but as a bike to ride its just burning cash. Too bad about the stem angle.

Hey, if people have the coin, why not?
It's a lovely looking bike.

I like this Colnago very much! Even the stem doesn't look too bad to me. I'd just change the tape.

Thanks giantdale. I will be changing the bar tape to Fi-zik stuff. I have ordered white and black so will see what looks best. Only other change planned for the bike is to fit 2 x Arundel mandible cages in white-out then once i get the seat post back from paint she is finished.

+1 And the all white paint scheme makes it look rather bland, imho.

best looking new style colnago ive seen - my suggestion would be black saddle and black bartape for an even better balance.

Here's a vote against a black saddle.

Maybe put in some black at the seatpost and stem, but not the saddle. White saddle + bar tape ftw.

Black saddle and tape for me. Will give it a more purposeful and balanced look.

Does anyone know if it is even possible to buy an integrated set of bars with negative angle? This is the only way I'll flatten things out.

Its a nice bike, other than the tape i wouldnt change anything.

It seems as though "please flip stem" is like some sort of automated response around here without consideration of things like bike fit or practicality. To those tellimg him to sort out the stem, should he ride around like this?
