It isn't too bad. However, I normally like to change my frame every year but because of the rear brake problems I'll never be able to sell this one. Respraying it would be the next best thing.

You don't sell a Colnago after a year. Unless you never wanted one. Sorry...

kgt - I do actually love this bike and probably won't want to sell it even if it did not have issues. But sometimes I get a bit of an itch for change and refinishing the frame will help me scratch it without resorting to selling.

I expected the Indy Fab Ti I had previously to be an amazing bike given the price and reputation but it never quite did it for me and I was happy to get my money back on it. The Colnago is a dream to ride in comparison and I consider myself to have caught the Colnago bug. If I did sell it after a year it would just be to buy a C59. A C59 traditional in PR99 is probably my dream bike.

This does however have some cosmetic flaws and I like to take care of my bikes and keep them looking good so just need to decide whether to restore the original finish or go for something else.
