Can't find the C64 hashtag!
Of course not. It's a teaser for a launch, not the launch itself. They've been pretty careful not to show too much of the bike either.

Question is, in the photo of him pulling a wheelie, does it say C64 or C60 on the underside of the downtube? Image quality is crap and at first I didn't think so, but if you zoom in it def looks like a 4.

It absolutely says C64 on the down tube and also note the direct mount brakes and all new paint scheme.

The C60 has some other tubes than the C50 AFAIK, at least for the bottom of the seat tube and the down tube. And it has a stiffer bottom bracket area.

Not sure what they really can improve on the C64...

Maybe clearance for 28mm tires (measuring up to 30.5 mm)

^ Nobody caught my iphone reference :(

"All new paint scheme" seems like a dramatic way to describe the new color of the "6" on the downtube. And maybe a red seatpost.

As for the direct mount brakes, team UAE has been using them since Roubaix at least: https://cyclingtips.com/2017/04/tour-fl ... g-comfort/

I guess if I ever get another Colnago, it will be the 56 sloping. Gotta say, I'm not too unhappy about that after seeing @Beeatnik's photos of his PR99 56s C59 that he posts up every now and then. At least I think his is a 56s... not much of a slope at all. It all depends how you build it up I think.

Oh well... I guess we'll find out soon enough, just when I'm trying to put my foot down and saying NO MORE BIKES, CALVIN! D'oh!

Ive noticed that myself how is this a 56 sloping, it looks like a traditional, what ever it is I like it ......

Whoops... my mistake... that's definitely a Traditional. Except for the wheels of course, but I guess @Beeatnik is cool enough to get away with it 8) .
For some reason I thought he had a 56s. But anyway, if they do away with traditional, the 56sloping is my size. It's like a 60 Traditional. So, I might have a 61T (C59), and a 59T(C60), and finally, maybe, in the absence of a 60T which has already been done away with when they decided to limit Traditional geometry to the odd numbered sizes and sloping to the even numbered sizes... a 56 sloping.... jussst right.

Personally, I'm in the camp that Ernesto Colnago isn't down with the tiny frame trend so I ride Colnagos that are 1 to 2 sizes larger than my non Colnagos. For instance, I'll ride a 54 CAAD10 but a 54S C60. Either way, with the right stem and proper seat tube angle, I'm at 12-14cm of saddle to bar drop. Bottom line, this frame can fit a wannabe (me!) or a MAMIL (haha, first time I've ever used that acronym).

For reference, a 5'11" rider on a 57 (54S) frame:

Now I think you might actually be a Colnago bot/spammer

54s is closest to a 58 Traditional, that was the idea when they went with the even number for the sloping sizes, and odd numbers for the traditional geos. The sloping sizes filled the void of the traditional sizes 4cm higher in number that were no more, and vice versa... but yeah, his is a 57T... and see... when you have a face like that you can rock any wheels you want.

I commented on Colnagoworlds instagram post with the text "I see C64 on the downtube" yesterday evening. During the night my comment has been deleted by Colnagoworld.

And the strangest thing, just out of the blue a guy started following me on instagram last evening. And I found out that the guy is a sport director in team UAE.
