Colnago is introducing a new chainstay design this year. Anybody see some real advantages in it?
There is a big advantage, for Colnago, sell more C40's nmDave Hickey

However that's measured. Or even perceived.

Sure looks like hype to me. I have a C-40 B-Stay, but for some reason, I'm not lusting after a B-Stay HP.

I never thought I would ever say that about a Colnago, much less a C-40.

In Ernesto's never ending search for the next reason to buy a C40 (also known as the search for the almighty dollar), he really screwed up this time. That chainstay really interupts the lines of a clasically beautiful frame. Maybe the 2002's will go on sale.....

The 2002 will go on sale. Colorado Cyclist is already selling them at a pretty good price.

Remember the titanium version (Ovalmaster?) with the twin seat tubes? That sure was an ugly bike.

Yeah--to make custom steel frames more of a bargain than they already are! Another over priced Tupperware frame that's the price of two Richard Sach's or three Davidson Impulses. Overpriced suckerware.

I'm thinking about getting one, gluing some ping-pong balls over the opening for eyes and painting some lips around the opening. That'd give the bicycle a real personality!
