Colnago C50 - feedback on ride qualitypjh01

I'm thinking of buying a Colnago C50 (64cm). Has anyone feedback on the ride quality, frame stiffness and comparsion to other top end frames?

I don't think that any have been delivered to the US yet. Mine is on order and should arrive around February.
The C-50 should be stiffer in the fork/headtube area due to the 1 1/8 fork steerer tube. It also has larger diameter downtube and seattube which should make the frame stiffer than the C-40. This frame is supposed to be an improvement on the already legendary C-40.
C50's have arrivedkgg

They indeed have arrived - saw one at the lbs about two weeks ago. All I can say is that it was a very intriguing looking frame.
I bet it is at least 10 better than a C40! ;-).....nmSpunout

Maestro has em listed at a little over $2,800 andB2

the C40's at about $2,400 including fork. I think this also includes the Colnago seatpost and stem (at least they used to include that in the price also).
