Not thinking about it. Supposedly going to show up in catalog in 2019 but can get it early with 10 orders now. Colnago it appears is only willing to paint 10 at a time to get best use of painters time and masking prints is my thought.

Can debate on aesthetic in absolute terms but for me this is not a mapei paint even from far away, too much blue, (edit) grey that never was in original frames and no white. So not sure if mapei visual branding changed since their time in cycling but to me that's not what I have in mind of Mapei-colnago collaboration.

Not for me. It looks cheap and far too garish. Not a patch on the Art Decor.

As for the blue decals on the wheels. just no.

I visited Colnago factory a couple of days before the offcial presentation and saw the Mapei C64.It actually looks great in reality.I asked them imediatly if they will add it to the catalog and they said NO.I asked them again today and i got the same answer.
So for now unfortunately this will NOT going to happen.I am wondering from where Bellati got this information...

P.S. I was lucky to pick up another unique C64,a red art decor...

Andrea Bellati called Colnago yesterday, and Colnago told him what I told you. So, hopefully 9 more of you will want to buy one so I can get it too. 10 is the number we have to reach. Email andrea at info@bellatisport.com for the details.

Unique gold tint C64 like the C60 colorway before. Love it. Looks amazing!

I’ve got a blue Art Deco on order which should be with me very soon! Looking at the other colourways, I’m still very happy with my choice. Personal preference of course.

Beautiful bike. But how do the dm Ultegra's play with the SRAM levers? I've never really liked the feel of SRAM levers with Shimano brakes...

Would be a super hard choice between black/gold and red for me. Think the red is the best color so far! So great job picking it up! I'd need to see both of those in reality though. Both would go really well with the new design lightweight Meilenstein Gold Edition wheels for a bling, but classy build.
