|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 nm||Dave 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!|| |
