I prefer the look of traditional, but got a c-59 in sloping as they didn't make a traditional in my size.
What do you mean when you say they didn't make a traditional in your size? It's the sloping sizes that are limited... The traditionals come in the entire range in increments of 1cm.
I've said this before, if they do abandon the traditional frames, and it appears they will, I at least hope they produce the sloping sizes in 1cm increments. Not likely though, as the biggest impetus for the sloping frames is being able to fit more people with fewer sizes and hence simplify both the manufacturing and dealer stocking logistics. Ideally, I would take a 57s to match up with my 61 Traditional. The 56s would require me to use more headset spacers because of its shorter headtube and the 58s is just a monstrosity designed to cover all those big people who need larger frames.
non-sloping starts at 42 cm 51 effective top, non-sloping starts at 52 cm 53 effective top tube. i had to go 45cm sloping 51.8 effective. Previous bike was 50cm standard 52.5 effective. I could not go bigger. It would have been great if colnago had a standard fit one size smaller, but they didn't and fit is more important than aesthetics.
i feel standard looks better, but sloping makes more business sense as manufacturers can offer fewer size increments. In fact everything I read about the c60 suggests the accountants had a say, bb-30 bottom bracket(press fit?) only sloping sizes(probably fewer sizes), and I'm guessing the frames will support both electronic and conventional gear sets as well as disc
