Short video showing assembly & painting procedures: https://www.facebook.com/Colnago/videos ... 300494131/
The paint job shown in the video seems to be the same as in the video lined by r4nd0mv4r14bl3 e.g. blue Art Decor with white seatpost area. They basically spray it with the white base layer and then do a variable blue overlay. Perhaps that dark blue seatpost area was a late addition...

EDIT: Still nobody seen the white Art Decor yet to confirm whether it's matte or fully glossy?

Colnago confirmed the dark blue seatpost bike was pre-production.

All Art-Decor bikes in blue will have the light coloured seatpost.

And they've updated the photo of BFBL already http://www.colnago.com/wp-content/uploa ... 0x1085.jpg
The previous BFBL variant just for reference http://www.colnago.com/wp-content/uploa ... 0x1085.jpg (I like this one a little bit more)

Cool, thanks for that. Maybe I'll change my order to this one in the end. By the way it's also slightly different - more gold especially on the top tube and fork.

Has anyone else heard late April or late May on the Disc version of the C64?

Nice, you get the award for first C64 built up and presented on the forum by a WW member, but that camera angle is really distorting things. Your rear wheel looks twice the size of the front, for example. Have you had a chance to get some good rides in yet. Do you have previous Colnagos for which to compare this one against. I think with the new seatpost/lug and seattube design, the ride difference could be significant, in a good way.

Meh it’s a photo. Am no David Baily
Picked it up this morning and got a 20 milecrude this afternoon. Have owned extreme power, v1-r and a c60, it has the plush feel I got from my c60, steering feels better/livelier, also feels stiffer through the BB. Nicer climbing bike. Certainly won’t be regretting the change

I’m really loving the look of this build congrats mate.

I couldn’t get my head around this paint scheme at first if I’m hoesnt. But seeing it all built up with these parts it makes much more sense to me. There’s something very futuristic about it which is in contrast to a more traditional Colnago look.

Looks amazing!

Whats the components used (besides the obvious) to get it down to 6.3kg?

Sram eTap
standard red crankset? 52/36? or praxis rings?
cockpit?
DA or ultegra direct mount brakes?
