I'm into the market for a Colnago C59 Di2 frame set for my partner, is it correct that there are only 5 colors available and as mentioned before the colors can't be mixed from other models? It says that the frames are on measure but I guess what they mean is that they offer a bigger variety of frame sizes ore will they produce on measure as well?
For the Di2 frameset will there be the internal cabling pre done or will I have to order the internal cable set myself and do it myself? Anyone done it-will the cable connection be inside the bb?
Thanks for the input.

Your dimensions are exactly like mine then. I am torn between a 48S and a 50S all the time too. So far I have the 50S but I suspect most people will tell you to go 48S. I think 50S will look just slightly better but tends to have a longish front center which affects your handling slightly as well. You may or may not like such handling. Also you may need to go with a 100 stem. So.... tough choice.

Does anyone have photos (not catalog) of the GDOB colour? Unfortunately I can't find anything online. :(

it is so hard to show the colour as it really is. The orange is a great fluro colour, and a nice metallic gun metal grey in between the nude carbon. It is my pick.

I think the orange really works. If I hadn't gone for polka dots, that would of been my next choice!
