Love that. And better with the quieter wheel set.
Perfect colour scheme but still can’t get my head around the font.
Call me old fashioned :oops:

I wonder what the opinion is for the younger generation that got into cycling after mapei pro team disbanded?

Are the younglings as into this colorway as us old farts?

That would be interesting , but as I saw on the milenials’ show GCN, there are lots of fans of their Belgian heirs Quickstep

I always remained fan of both heir branches: The Belgians Quickstep and the Italians Lampre, that now is Emirates and are riding Colnagos again, and wining a lot recently both of them

I am not quite old enough to remember the mapei pro team. But I have always loved that paint. I am not a fan of the ninja flat black paint that seems to be on everything. This has just enough of everything to be appreciated. Although I am not sure if I would open my wallet far enough to own one. Still cool paint though.

I don't see guys in my age group (20s) riding Colnagos anyway...the Mapei scheme is generally seen as a brand clinging to its long gone glory days.

Sorry, only now I saw your question

The frame comes with screw-on cups from the factory and on them I had the shop install super record cups , I think they are press-fit BB386, the bearings are on the crankset axel in this case a Super Record
