    yep I'd say cinelli, although it is a bit hard for me to picture the colnago in different colours.

    why does that colnago frame look so weird to me? Is it the angle? Skewed proportions? Also why does it have something in the forks and what is it? Also those decals are obnoxious; does it really need to scream the brand name on every available surface? It may be the world's best frame for all I know but the whole thing annoys the hell out of me. Go Cinelli!

    Does the Colnago come with the straight chromed front-fork? If so: Colnago.

    hey Sniks, how many bikes to you have? Several, right? I have a question for some of you guys who are constantly buying new frames. I'm just wondering what you will do... just ride this new one some of the time? Or do you always sell your old bikes and make each new bike your new main bike.

    I have 2 bikes and I love them both but i really ride only 1 most of the time. Yet I still have the same compulsion to buy new frames all the time. I'm just wondering if anyone is ever finally happy with what they have. Or is there happiness in having a collection of bikes that gets bigger and bigger. Serious question. This is an issue for me, too. When are we simply happy and done buying? I want both of those frames!

    Hooters I've got 4, I breifly managed to get it from 7 down to 3, but then I found the Razesa and fell in love, so now I've got 4.I try to keep it so all my bikes are somewhat different from one another, otherwise one would make another similar bike redundant. I think 3 is the perfect number for me, but I can't find one to part with.

    I tend to go through periods where I prefer one and the others get neglected for a while. Right now I've been riding the winter beater for too long, and I'm longing to ride one of the other three that share my bedroom, but I'm waiting for nicer weather, the salt is murder on bikes, and that's why it's nice to have one dedicated to salty slushy riding. In the summer the winter beater will be reserved for rainy days (fenders) and hauling stuff (racks). The fixed gear and the Razesa are the fun bikes I choose most often, leaving the fuji cross as the most neglected one of the bunch, but it's also my most practical bike for long rides, so I can't really part with it either.

    On topic, I like the Cinelli, but I think it's mostly because I dig the green and chrome, and the decals are less obnoxious. From the pics the Nago appears to have shorter chainstays, which might make it a bit more fun to ride, but that could just be an optical illusion. If they really are very similar, I'd go with the cheaper one first, all else being equal, I'd go with the pretty one.

    Cinelli looks nicer to me because it has more vintage style while Colnago looks ugly and somehow very 90s-like. But these are just esthetics.

    I would go for Cinelli personally.

    But is this it; Keirin bikes are yesterday's news, now we all want Italian classic track bikes?
