Non integrated disc frames are a month away I think.

Agree though it's annoying to have something dangled at you and then it's not available.
I considered the non-integrated disc frame for that reason until i saw some photos of fully internally routed version. Then it became an easy decision even knowing that delivery was many months away.

I’m having trouble understanding what the difference is between the integrated and non-integrated frame set is. Is it just the stem? If someone could enlighten me that would be great.

Th integrated runs the brake cable down the inside of the fork. Much cleaner.

Are there any pictures of how the non integrated disc frameset looks? I originally ordered a Concept Disc, but after delay and delay, my local importer has offered to exchange it to a C64 disc, since the wait time would be the same, whilst very different frames I could be tempted to switch if I could only see what it looks like built up.

More colour variations.

Fabio Aru's training bike:

Image

Similar to PKRD except team head tube logo, white logos and maybe even gloss naked carbon tubes as opposed to matte. National champion bands on the seat tube.

Fabio Aru's team bike at launch:

Image

Same as the other team bikes except Aru has the tricolour on the seat tube. Matte head tube and fork to match other tubes. Campagnolo and Vittoria sponsor logos in addition to Emirates.

Fabio Aru's Giro d'Italia bike as featured on Colnago's Instagram:

Image

Matte everything. Only sponsor logo is Emirates. I find this an odd look for a team bike. I like a matte bike, but I don't think it will have many fans.

The ultimate weight weenie C64 paint job? :D It's not like the regular team bike had a lot of gloss paint to weigh it down :wink:

Interesting, the older version of the Shamal Ultra's on Aru's training rig.

He's riding this in Trentino this week (a la Tour of the Alps now, but always Trentino to most). It does look dull. Quite some achievement with this frame and the colours we can all buy.

Does anybody have any more information on Colnago's timing regarding the internally routed stem and fork? Longer is probably better if I want to hopefully see the next iteration of EPS.

My shop was told September for the internal disc frameset. I understand that the stems will arrive sooner though and most likely June/July.

A friend is after one (the disc frameset) and his local shop has said the same today. So that's looking pretty concrete now.

Is my assumption correct that if the disc with internal routing ships in September, then it will be a 2018? At what point do they become 2019s?

Also told end of year for integrated disc frames.

There is never a firm date with Colnago though, only vague suggestions! :lol:

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Frustrating for the customer....
Try ordering something a little different and it's even worse!

Art decor Concept Disc currently at 16 weeks. Had 2 delivery dates been and gone and now just been given another date of 'Frame due back from painters this week then 14 days for delivery'.

Not holding out much hope but I can but cross my fingers! Hopefully now the importer has lent me there demo bike to use till it turns up they will hurry up as i'm holding it to ransom!! lol

I normally don’t go for team bikes, however, I used to live in the UAE so this does have a special place in my heart. That said, the Art Deco versions are probably too beautiful to pass up.
