that's true on many bikes. trek's lifetime frame warranty is only for the original owner
Why post the entire OP's original post over again, and then tell us something that any imbecile can tell you?

OP - had you put up a picture of the RD hanger, that might have cleared it up straight away.

Looks genuine to me. I recently removed the threadfit cups on mine to install di2 cable and junctions and could see the bottom bracket lug had a serial number printed on the inside of it. Check if yours has?

There is nothing to worry about the authenticity,the frame is a REAL Colnago.
Concerning the metal sleeve in the BB Colnago changed the design sometime in early 2017.
Build it and fully enjoy it

Does it have an integrated cable stop on the chainstay?
Thanks for the input so far, what a helpful community.

Yes it does have the integrated cable stop on the chainstay.

are you talking about this piece?

C60s unlike C59s have a removable rd cable stop as shown in the first pic above. The fakes run the cable internally, exiting above the chainstay. Check out this thread on Paceline on the quality of fake C60s

This chart below is still the best reference I have come across re differences between the fake vs real... it's already referenced at the beginning of this thread... but here it is again... in case anyone missed it...

Thanks to everyone that responded for easing my concerns, and a special thanks to @ Colnago who took the time to respond to my neuroticism on multiple threads. I can’t wait for the bike to be built up and get it on the road!

I would have suggested removing the Threadfit cups if you were still thinking it has to be fake for some reason, but you need a special tool for that. If you have it, then great. I would always like to remove those cups upon initial build anyway, then reinstall them to ensure they are properly torqued to the shell. Otherwise, just trust us... it's real. Oh, and it's @Calnago (as in Calvin Klein), just a play on the Colnago name, which is all Ernesto. Accept no substitutes!

Dual use C59s also had the removable cable stop, but yes the mechanical only versions had it riveted on.
