What is weird is the C64 look in a monocoque frame. That will be sad if the next C series is monocoque.

I think its good to have E Bikes that look like proper road bikes but I wish they hadn't modelled it on the C64. I think thats a marketing mistake by Colnago and they've damaged the image of the C64. Oh and over 60 is not the time for an E bike if you are fit and healthy.

It’s a growing market and they should sell these easily, so good on them. Designing it as a fake looking knockoff monocoque with painted on lugs is an interesting spin on their flagship model though

Never sure why they always have some young pro looking guy on the advertising for these bikes.

Because it is part of the marketing as well. The buyer always wants to look cool, "like a racer" even if one is not fit enough to ride a 3% climb.
