Brand new Colnago M10 matt carbon frame - but is there too much branding?


It's really light and stiff must it be too. Box shaped tubes and lots of stuff around bottom bracket.
I love the skinned carbon surface finished matt. What I don't adore is that there is too much branding - "C- HS Colnago Headset Systme" "Q2 Stay".  Serious note to design department - less is more and more is redicilus. M10 then - what does is it mean? At least it's bad graphic design. You are Italian, you should do it right guys!

This red color suits well with the frame. But too much different graphic elements here as well.

Seems that my Garmin Edge 705 is now out of style and lost it's top-of-the-line-position.
This means bye bye 705, buy buy 800.

Colnago Start - new bike build with love, sense of style and top quality

This Colnago Start is build for my friend Wege, a true bike enthusiast and style connosier who occasionally spend up to 19 hour on his beautiful Colnago. I think this bike will be kind of trendstetter - Aluminium is the new steel!
Bike is a long term project. Planning started some 2 years ago. But finding the right kind of frame was the most difficult part of the project. Every bit and piece is carefully selected and searched by Velosport pro-shop specialists. Fortunately they have kind of road cycling frame and part history department by the founder Raimo - he has hidden some valuable things for this kind of key projects.
Eighties style of design of frame  is actually  brand new, but 2000-model. Strong and light aluminium frame is truly stiff but steel fork and classic Mavic Open Pro rims with aluminium Record hubs and Michelin ProRace3 gives lots of comfort for the ride. I test-drove the bike and it's suprisingly stiff but comfy and really fast. And it gets lots of views and supportavie comments.
