Colnago Impact

I know Colnago is known for road bikes, but I really like the Colnago Impact (flat bar). A dealer in southern california quoted it's ~$4,000. I think that's horseshxt. Can someone confirm that? I thought it was more of $1000-1500 range.

I was looking at bianchi's armani bike ($1500) and cannondale's bad boy ($800)...

Btw, I want a flat bar bike for casual riding by the boardwalk and when I'm sick of my 330i. Thanks.

not at all. I know the Impact model is available in Europe and Japan only, but the price is around 1.000 euros...

It's a Colnago; the decals alone are probably $1000-$1500.

I think you would be happiest with the Colnago CF4 Ferrari:



C'mon, we both know you spent twice this much on Hamann suspension upgrades that have rendered your Beemer unbearable at slow speeds - thus the need for a bike. So, go out there and look like the guy with the BMW, even when you're not in the BMW. 'Tis the only way.
