Colnago C59 difference in these colours

Postby mfin » Mon Aug 19, 2013 12:50 pm

Does anyone up on Colnago know which each of these frames are in Year and Colour Code??

The one at the top has Italian Flag Colours under the Top Tube Logo, and on the Chain Stay has Team Edition written entirely on the white section (bottom one it appears to overlap the Black part with half the text in White.

Are they the same colour code but from different years?? (I'm really trying to ascertain what the top one is because I prefer it).

Also, this 2014 Colour, has anyone seen it in the flesh yet, interested to know if the blacks are a mix of solid paint and naked or tinted carbon, or whether its just all solid black paint. These doctored images are difficult to tell by. Code is called INCI

Where did you find the image by the way, and are there any more?

Yes, saw that. I'm just not sure which one I like more, the INCI or the INIT one. More inclined towards the INCI maybe....

If you're anything like me you will change your mind even when you've made it up :) ...exactly the same position as me, I was torn between the same two.

I've got INCI on order, but looking at the laquered carbon effect I'm not so sure it's not a bit 'in your face'. Mind you, the chances are that in the flesh it will look brilliant, and just the snap you were sent makes it look a bit crap.

I know the INIT will look good, like the 150th Anniversary one did, but in the flesh the INCI might look even better!

Next week I'll probably pop to the NEC Cycle Show and I'm sure they'll have them both on the Colnago stand (judging by the size of last years stand) and will hopefully have a good look.
