All the c series Colnagos have being an evolution of the design rather than revolution which for me is a good thing (nobody would mind having a c59 or even an extreme power even today ).It will be offered in 5 colours for the beginning (3 "normal",2 art deco ). Bottom bracket will be Colnago's solution to press fit(electronic plus discs groupsets wirings don't couple well with bsa).

Yes, something is coming out of Cambiago on 9th of February!
The good :
-Change in the seatube lug
-Change in the tubing (minor as I understand )
-Direct mount brakes only (and disc of course )
The bad:
Traditional geometry is ditched .That's an end of an era for us Colnago devotees I guess. Anyway, looking forward to it!
so what problems are they fixing here if this is accurate? mostly thinking about seat tube lug and the overall change in tubing...

How about the weight? Any lighter?

i'd bet against it. never has colnago really focused on the metric, at most they might advertise a few grams lighter. its just not bee a goal of colnago. and i doubt they'd do a 180 degree turn and attempt to do a weight weenie version of their top of the line.

On the latest instagram post we can see that the downtube reads C64 when fabio Aru is doing a wheelie.

Try to zoom in here (picture number two in the collage). Easier to see on the phone I think. Just go to colnagoworld on instagram

Eh, I'm not so sure. If you're looking to see a "4" in that photo, I think you can see it. But other details on that bike don't match the rumors (partial tube-tube construction, no seatpost collar)

Might just be a C60 in 2018 Emirates colours with updated C60 graphics on the downtube.

But agree, it does look like it could read C64.

It seems Colnago has posted the first photos of the upcoming C64 (note: the hashtags in the caption and the C64 decals on the down tube in the second photo).

Perhaps. I have a C60 with the same graphics on the downtube, and the 0 looks quite different. But mine is a 2014 though.
