The only silver lining is that we can have matching winter (EPS) and summer (C59) bikes... :shock:



If the eps and c59 are your winter and summer bikes, I would hate to ask what your fall and spring bikes are :D

Sakic......Is the frameset black in person or is it a charcoal color. Its hard to make out on the pictures. Also, it seems the rear dropout is black instead of fluorescent like on the colnago website. This was possibly my second choice in color but now I just don't know. I was hoping that they would offer the white/black like the ones pictured when the original c59 leaked out.

no sorry mate, just a poor quality photo. the frame is black, with silver panels and the fluro yellow.

it is the same as the team colour, just with plain decal wheels.

I wasn't being 100% serious... Something to aspire to anyway!

Has anything been said anywhere about a C60? I can't figure out if this essentially is the C60, or more of an interim.

What makes you think there will be a C60? I can;t imagine that Colnago would release the C59 and then a year later a C60. Especially since the C59 has had some great victories this year which will help sales.

I notice both the M10 and the C59 have the Q-Stay rear end. So it looks at first glance like the rear section is a pre-made (in the east) tail section which is generic to both frames. Can't tell from the pictures whether the stay is the same.

Just that we had a C40, and then ten years later a C50... Perhaps they're not going to continue the mini tradition of launching a top of the range frame each decade and stick with the C59.

Strictly speaking that would mean the C60 would be due out in about 2014.

Well that timing would be about right for the next top of the range Colnago frame.

p.s. I may have just struck lucky and got hold of a C59 :D

I still think the EPS is the better looking frame!

m10 is monocoque, the stays and rest of bike are not assembled seperately. but yeah stay is not the same.
