as a reminder the e-road bike from Pinarello
I'm sure the Colnago will be fine once you slam the stem…
Mom: He was very sickly until he started riding around on that bicycle.
Dad: Yeah... well... now his body’s fine, but his mind is gone.

i don't see what either pinarello or colnago bring to e-bikes. other than style or branding i see nothing. might as well go with a giant etc

I would be utterly amazed if any single part of that was made in Italy. The battery looks like a Bosch anyway

E-bikes are selling suprisingly well. Heard something like 30% of the new bikes are e-bikes. Guess everyone wants their piece of that pie.

well at least in ny a moped requires a license, an ebike does not. there's a regulatory incentive to go ebike.

Me too.

Aside from getting in on the e-bike game (and profits), which I can understand... seems to me like it'll dilute the Colnago brand, which has always stood for high-end, high-quality, race-worthy machinery with a dose of legend, history and beauty.
