Lucky b***ard... And I'm still waiting. :unbelievable:
Given his location and the cassette he uses he might as well use 1x chainring option. :lol:

Thanks for posting the pic of the second bike. Instant relief for the eyes after the first one. IMHO.
IMHO you are completely right ;O)

Buddies, does any of u know.something about new "styling" for 2019 framesets?
I'm.waiting for one pksl which fortunately will arrive next week and the shop has just told me Im receiving a new 2019 frame style who's is "slightly different".

It really sounds weird to me but the shop is one of the biggest dealers of colnago in the world so I give them some trust...any hints?

Same here. Been waiting for months and finally learned that it should arrive within few weeks with the 2019 paintjob. Asked whether they could show how it's going to look like, but they couldn't, so unless Colnago reveals these paintjobs soon it's going to be a little surprise it seems (actually in my case I'll consider miracle that it will finally arrive, it's been really long waiting).

Post few photos of yours once you receive it.

The custom red Art Decor is still the best I've seen so far. Hope one like that becomes available for one of you!

I'm waiting for BFWH (White Art Decor).
And yes, that red one is certainly nice, also the dark greenish one looks quite good. But they tend to make such experiments with 52s size frames only and that isn't my size. I tried to persuade them into something custom but they were reluctant. Maybe now they'd be more open but I'm sure that would mean another delay...

Hello all,
I recently got the opportunity to buy a c64. I’ve always used DA, however on this bike I’m thinking of going all Italian.
Do you think I should go with he new campy 12 speed vs the V3 EPS vs see what’s coming in for v4 EPS?
I’m going with a disc build for what it’s worth.

Thank you for your opinions.

If you havent used it before have a ride on a demo bike with Campag first. I've only ever used shimano and SRAM and then got lent a Potenza equipped bike for a couple of months. Hated it! the hood shape was all wrong and the thumb shifters as well as being in the wrong place for me to actually get my thumb to just reminded me of the nasty low end shimano groupsets you get on really cheap bikes.

I recently picked up a C64 disc and elected to go H11 v3 EPS. I would recommend getting 11 speed electronic or 12 speed mechanical. Electronic 12 speed will not be released for several months. If you don’t need to ride right away, then by all means wait.

Are you getting disc version with all internal routing? I ordered one when c64 was released and am still waiting.

The updated paint schemes are online (with the whole colnago.com website redesign): https://www.colnago.com/en/bikes/c64/
(former PK paint code prefixes are now PJ, BF now being BD)
I see only minor differences like label position and font tweaks, otherwise none at all. Not sure why that's worth new paint codes...

The change in label positions, colnago font and other minor visual differences probably necessitated the updated paint codes.

Yes you're probably right. They tweaked their visual style a little (including the used font) so even though the overall graphics remained the same, those changes still required new paint codes.
