I was just perusing the Tour adition of my Vello news. They listed the teams and equipment. I surprisingly noticed that all the teams that had Colnago frames Al was listed for the frame material, all the teams that had De Rosa frames the same deal. I sort of expected C-40's for Colnago and I know for sure I've seen the King in just about every shot of the Allesio team. What gives?

I read in some other magazine, and somewhere on the web, that most of the Colnago riding teams ARE using the C-40. I read the same thing you did in Velo News and couldn't figure it out either. Maybe just poor reporting?

Two parts: (1) many of the riders do, actually have Dream Plus bikes (they ride these, for example, while being fitted for their custom C40s) even if they don't ride them in the tour; and (2) Columbus is a sponsor, so they get some sticker and advertising presence.
