Any reason not to buy an old, unused frame from 2006-8? How much would I be missing with not having the latest and greatest?

Any safety or other practical concerns to be worried about?

Thanks.

Not in the least. Go check out the Colnago page and see my post on refurbishing my 2001 C-40. Rode it into work today. It's like having a new bike. I wouldn't necessarily say that the latest is the greatest.

Plus, it already passes the 10 year test -- It's 10 years old and still looks attractive. Most of the bikes I see in my LBS definitely won't pass that test.

Plus Looks are kind of rare. It's good not to always ride with the herd.

If something is better, it would be only incrementally so, not leaps or bounds.
