I believe that was to do with the number of years Ernesto Colnago had been building frames at launch.
Yes but if you see the chronology the C-40 started on 1994, exactly at the 40 year anniversary of Colnago ( founded 1954 )
The C-50 came to the market on 2004 at the 50th anniversary.
the C-59 started on 2011-2012 if I am not wrong that is 57 years, it should have been called C-57.
Now for 2014 we should expect a true C-60

As a result I thing they announced they will keep the original and discard their logo changing plans...
Hmm, not according to the UK distributors, they will ship with the 'new' mental typeface ...
I had the stem painted white which i thought would be a good idea, I hated it, also hated the look of the madable cages too, so got the new lightweight cages:
So I replaced it with a deda superleggera bob stem, changed the seat to black and the seatpost to all white. I think white bar tape may look better but for now I'll keep it black until I feel like changing it. Got a great deal on the 80th anniversary groupset so thought I would go with that, the matt finish is a nice change. I have finished the build, had first ride which was also my first on lightweights and I absolutely think everyone should have a pair at some time in their life, they are phenomenally comfortable, lightweight cages are freaky light looking, interesting to see if they hold up:
Weight came in around as expected:
