Need some advice on the CT1(8 posts)

Need some advice on the CT1EYT

I know that some of you dislike Colnago's Ti bike because the origin of their tubing. I've tested one and really like it. I think I'm going to buy one. What colour shall I go for? GEO? Mapei? Any advice is welcome.

I have the CTF. Very nicely understated, looks great with the carbon fork. I don't like the GEO because Colnago also paints the fork in the GEO colors and it looks like overkill. Some of the other colors just don't look good on the CT1. The metallic blue RX1 color, for example, looks awful to me. I do like the Mapei (LX 21) and the LX23 colors though. Also, the Navigators TM10 and Fiere colors looks nice if you don't mind going with team colors. Good luck, you'll love the ride.
Check out the LX38 World Champion edition...kapalua

I just got a C40 in that schema and it looks awesome! Plus, it's a limited edition so it will be that much rarer. The fork is even painted to match. Lots of attention and compliments when out riding...

Good luck!

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Colnago introduced the red TM11 color for the CT1. This picture, from Cbike's C-40 color page, shows a CT1 in the TM11 colors. Looks nice.
Nice, I was drooling over that one too! :0kapalua

I've got an 02 Geo CT1JohnG

Insane nice frame BTW. Only JA's whine about the Ti source.

FWIW, the 02 Geo has a bit more orange than I'd prefer. You should take a look at one in person if you can. I'll post a pic if you want also........ although it's real hard to see the subtle colors in a jpg. I tried to get a custom (toned down orange) and no go. :( I would have ordered another!!! This frame rocks soooooo hard. Comfy and stiff..... doesn't get any better than that. I've also got/had just about every major frame and this frame is the best I've ever ridden.

I wouldn't get the Mapei because the team is folding after this year.

The Frier is probably the prettiest color combo but it's got some Mapei stuff on it. ???? I'm still considering ordering one of these for my GF.

You can get any color that Colnago makes through You don't have to stick with the "standard" CT1 colors.

Blue, no...djg

Actually, the RX1 blue looks pretty nice--there's one I've seen around from time to time. I have Rabo-carbon, which is at least somewhat distinctive here in the US since it's a limited color pattern that was never one of the stock options imported here.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say you should get the color you like.
