I've been craving a Colnago in GEO ever since the very first time I saw one. Had decided earlier this year that I'd buy a Dream in that scheme (since of all the models, it seemed the most GEOy) and build it. Never got around to it and now they've discontinued both the model and the paint scheme.

Well, this week eBay to the rescue - one in my size, with a seller intelligent enough to provide "buy it now." Four days later, my beloved UPS guy leaves me a weekend present. I'm a happy guy.
wow, that's purtyJFR

Are you sure the add at the top of this board didn't influence your GEO craving... that GEO top-tube sure has caught my eye on more than one occasion. I love fancy paint schemes.

Congrats on your find.

That's the only Colnago paint scheme that I've ever really liked. Good choice.

Just thought I'd share that info since everyone else seems to comment on their dislike of Colnago.

Great looking bike by the way. A guy on my team has the same frame and it looks awesome. It's good to see that you can still get a good deal on a frame from ebay.

Now, I can't wait until my new C-50 gets here!

But I thought I would say something about a topic I know nothing about. No offense to Steve.

Pretty bike. Again.
Cramped for space yet?
Next time you break out the ol' abacus give us a tally.

space is getting tight, but I'm going to retire a couple. Did you ride in that fog on Saturday? I froze.

No ride all weekend. My shame is large.
I neglected to mention that though pretty now, I think your new(est) frame will be a heck of a standout once built. Carbon Campy? Ever seen one built? Get my Fri. e-mail?

didn't get any email from you. strange.

still having an internal haggle on how to build it. part of me wants to take apart an older bike and use those parts. problem is we're talking Shimano on a Colnago. not sure I can live with myself if I do it.

after my weekend with the Calfee, it might be time to accept the fact that it's not for me and use those parts. again though - Shimano. I'm too cheap for Record, and I could get some 2003 Chorus pieces for not a lot, but that leaves me without wheels. so confused, can't decide.
