Colnago C59 150, Unification of Italy Edition
We were just wondering if any of the bicycle manufacturers would have a 150th anniversary of Italian unification model.
First, apparently, is Colnago with their C59 150. The C59 150 will be a special edition, not limited in numbers but only be available until the end of the year; production will cease beginning next year.
The frame uses a design that completely integrates Shimano's Di2 electronic gruppo with the frame, including having the battery inside the frame.
Note: someone emailed me from the Taipei show and said the price is said to be about 15,000 euro.
