someone today told me colnago has recalled a batch of c-50's because they unglued at the chainstays. i'm concerned 'cause i have one on order. does anyone know anything about this or is just a rumor? i've heard of two people that this happened to their c-40's. should i be looking for a different frame?
Let's hope it's a rumor!SPINDAWG

I'll be praying to the bike gods meanwhile.I've got one on order aswell, but don't expect it til June though. Maybe by then they will have worked the kinks out, if it is true. I've been so psyched about getting this frame it just can't be true!

To make a really long story short, he has been riding a mountain bike with slicks for three months now.
Sounds like the famed Italian master builders might be getting a little sloppy?!

...if I remember right.
It doesn't really matter, though. A fabled manufacturer like Colnago cannot have issues like that. Those are reserved for the Wal-Mart brands.
Wouldn't it be posted immediately on the web site?djg

I took a quick peek at the trialtir-usa (us distributor) web site and didn't see anything about a recall.

it's a good thing that I went with KG486 first. Could have gone with either one but I didn't want to wait and precisely this is the first year for C50.
It's not true!SPINDAWG

I've talked to Mike at Maestro and he said it was news to him! They get their tubes from Ferrari for goodness sake and they've got one of the most top notch quality inspection teams going. They've won some award for it in the past and you would have thought you would have heard something in the news about it by now. Maybe the trouble stems from the riders weight!
