New Colnago C59 Colors for 2014. Art Deco is back.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Better looking than the Treks I see all over the place...and the all black bikes that seem to have taken over.

meh, not impressed with those colors, and not really enough pastels to be art deco. I mean, they're interesting and all, but nah, given those choices and simple black or plain white, I'd choose black or white.

Black and red and black and yellow are the only two that aren't awful.

I like them, but you said art deco, I got really excited that they did a bold art deco homage. Setting that aside, I like several of those schemes quite well.

I don't see Art Deco as well. Is this what Colnago calls Art Deco treatment?

The first two and the last one hearken back to the late 80s, when "fade" paint jobs were popular. The other ones are tastefully done, and much nicer than the more popular bikes. I'd go with the first one myself. That frameset is my "when I win the lottery" frameset.

Really nice looking - all of them. But I wonder why Colnago doesn't work on reducing weight? The frame a lone is a full pound over many new competitors.

I like the style of the color schemes. What would stop me is the brand name plastered all over it, it's as bad or worse than my Trek.

I like some of the paint jobs, but that all black deep wheel and tire combo just doesn't do it for me for some reason. Looks like someone tried putting monster truck tires on a ferrari.

Most are heinous, the white/red is decent. The 2013 bikes are going to bring some coin because they looked near perfect.

The above paint scheme is exactly what I wanted.

Last year, I asked about getting the C59 in PR82 - my sole distributor LBS in Thailand said that Colnago does not do custom paint jobs. Anyway, the frame set price in Thailand is about $7000. When I asked Bike24 in Germany, they also told me that Colnago does not do custom paint jobs,

So instead, I got a custom geometry and custom paint job (not PR82) lugged carbon frame - my Parlee Z1.

My next bike will be a stainless steel bike so the Colnago will have to wait until at least after 2015.
