It does look much better than I thought too - but I'd still go for the black and yellow personally.

What is the standover height of the size 57 traditonal frame?

I think all bike brand should give this info about frames.

New clothing range from Colnago http://colnagoconbrio.posterous.com/

Goes quite nicely with the new range of bikes!

I got mine 62cm white C59 yesterday. 3 weeks earlier than expected actually.
I ordered it in July/August and was kind of nervous that I wouldn't get the frame this year.

Fastest delivery of an Italian bike I ever had!
It looks alright but the massive head-tube takes some getting used to, it is twice the size
of anything I ever had before.

Now all I have to do is to get it in order and wait for spring.

1220g frame 390g uncut fork.
So it comes out in the same range as my Look 595 ultra.
And I start to realize how light my old 980g Trek SSL in the same size was.

Not much to see so far. Waiting for a black and white Deda zero stem and a Deda seatpost etc.
