I've talked to Mike at Maestro before, haven't bought anything, but if I did he'd be my first option. I do want a C60 but I'm kinda meh on the colors available right now. I don't dislike them, there just isn't one that jumps out at me.

Anyway, another place I've considered but don't know much about other than their prices aren't bad and maybe you can barter a bit with them:
https://en.ciclimattio.com/

Edited to add: I've bought one maybe two frames from Bellati before, Wilier not Colnago but I'd do business with them again for sure if the price etc was right.

Does someone know that you can buy a C60 with a custom geometry?

What's so bad about them?

He was being facetious.
