    Anybody else notice Nys's Colnago/Scott?

    After the first of the year the Landbouwkrediet team switched to Scott bikes...except Nys. If you look at his Colnagos they've been repainted to hide the Colnago from plain view and to match the Scott color scheme. Apparently Nys doesn't favor the Scott frames.

    This has been discussed. The Colnago logo is on his jersey. The Colnago name is all over the bike. He has ridden Colnago his whole career. Can't be hiding it too much.

    Believe he also has it in his contract that he is a Colnago man, regardless of what the rest of the team rides.

    So he re-paints all his bikes to mimick the Scott paint jobs and changes the logo locations so they are almost invisible while riding and you don't think he's hiding it?

    Go to the team website. The FIRST logo you see is Colnago (other than Lanbouwkrediet and KDL of course). Scott is the last logo on the list over on the left. The "A team" rides Colnago. The "B team" rides Scott. They have different uniforms.

    There's no hiding that its a colnogo - the emblems are huge! Not to mention the dead giveaway seat post "shoulder rest".

    Also, the paint/emblem layout is no different from what a customer can buy. There's nothing "custom" about it

    Nys riding a Scott is like Mario Andretti driving a Hyundai Elantra.
