Non integrated disc frames are a month away I think.

Agree though it's annoying to have something dangled at you and then it's not available.
I considered the non-integrated disc frame for that reason until i saw some photos of fully internally routed version. Then it became an easy decision even knowing that delivery was many months away.

I’m having trouble understanding what the difference is between the integrated and non-integrated frame set is. Is it just the stem? If someone could enlighten me that would be great.

Th integrated runs the brake cable down the inside of the fork. Much cleaner.

Are there any pictures of how the non integrated disc frameset looks? I originally ordered a Concept Disc, but after delay and delay, my local importer has offered to exchange it to a C64 disc, since the wait time would be the same, whilst very different frames I could be tempted to switch if I could only see what it looks like built up.

More colour variations.

Fabio Aru's training bike:

Image

Similar to PKRD except team head tube logo, white logos and maybe even gloss naked carbon tubes as opposed to matte. National champion bands on the seat tube.

Fabio Aru's team bike at launch:

Image

Same as the other team bikes except Aru has the tricolour on the seat tube. Matte head tube and fork to match other tubes. Campagnolo and Vittoria sponsor logos in addition to Emirates.

Fabio Aru's Giro d'Italia bike as featured on Colnago's Instagram:

Image

Matte everything. Only sponsor logo is Emirates. I find this an odd look for a team bike. I like a matte bike, but I don't think it will have many fans.

The ultimate weight weenie C64 paint job? :D It's not like the regular team bike had a lot of gloss paint to weigh it down :wink:

Interesting, the older version of the Shamal Ultra's on Aru's training rig.

He's riding this in Trentino this week (a la Tour of the Alps now, but always Trentino to most). It does look dull. Quite some achievement with this frame and the colours we can all buy.
