So I guess it's the C64 version of the C60's PLLB. My biggest gripe with the C64 paint schemes (apart from the art decor) are that they're just variations of what's been done with the C60. Let the C64 be it's own bike.

Still not a fan of that font.

I like the tricolour on that but do you know if it's been painted on or they're just stickers that Colnago seem to be doing a lot more of.

I think the only sticker they are using on the c64 is the front headtube colnago logo...am I wrong?

The patent was filed in 2016

It's a stretch to get from that to UAE won't need internally routed frames.

You may want to Google "Gloss paint on matte paint", the suggestion that stickers are used in lieu of paint is ill-informed and silly.

Decals are used on bikes, the UCI logos are decals and in the case of Colnago they use them for the head tube logo, but they usually go under the clear coat.

The only sticker I've seen on a modern mid to high end bike denote frame size or "made in ......." and are usually removed once it leaves the bike shop. Like those orange warning labels on rims.
