Very pleased with the quality and ride characteristics.This is a smooth riding frame. The carbon rear triangle soaks up the bumps for a comfortable ride.

Strengths:    Good compromise between stiffness & comfort, feels save on descents & bad roads.
Well suited for long distances and when you ride on many succesive days.

Weaknesses:    paint job especially on chain stay will come off after some time (without protection). Original Colnago headset is not very durable.

Bottom Line:   
After 15 years on steel frames, this was my first aluminum frame. Compared to my previous bikes, this one feels much saver in corners and descends especially on bad roads. This is maybe also a result of the geometry. It's very easy to ride free-hand on this bike, you simple sit up and it keeps following a straight line.

The rear of the frame, though feels a tiny bit soft, at least it seems so during the first five minutes of a ride but becomes a plus after a longer distance in the saddle.

Strengths:    Great feel on the road. Climbs well, decends well.

Weaknesses:    This is not a crit bike, nor is it a TT bike.

Bottom Line:   
The long wheelbase makes this an all-day ride: very stable and very comfortable. The carbon soaks up road vibration. The scandium gives it good accelleration and climbing ability. The reality is that most of us don't need or can't justify a C40/50. This frame gives you the chance to ride Colnago's legendary frames for a reasonable price of admission. For me it was worth it.
