    am trying to get colnago c64 MAPEI paint job but need 9 more people

    Hello, I am mike, a longtime member of the weightweenies.starbike forum.

    I was told by the Colnago distributor, Andrea Bellati, of www.bellatisport.com that Colnago will do a mapei paint job for the C64 if there are 10 or more orders. I put my order in but need 9 more.

    Are any of you interested? If so, contact Andrea Bellati, owner and distributor, at [email protected]

    I have no connection other than I have bought all my colnagos from him and he is doing me a favor by trying to get the c64 in mapei paint scheme, which costs the same if you order a C64 in art décor.

    Here is what Colnago c64 in mapei looks like. Pics are from is phone when he visited the ColnagoC64.

    I know there's no accounting for taste, but that looks like crap.

    Just get a C40 with the real paint scheme.

    I think it has a B-A look to it. the mapei of old turned into Darth Vader.

    I have to agree with the naysayers. The Mapei paint scheme on my circa 2000 Dream is much more aesthetically pleasing. I think the metallic silver really kills it.
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    I bought a C-40 frame when I was on my honeymoon in Italy in 2000. It was the 2001 model -- first to have the b-stay. I got the minimalist OOF paint job. I always regretted that I didn't get something flashier like Mapei, or GEO. My wife got an art decor paint job on hers. I was jealous right after we unboxed them.

    I have to agree with everyone -- it's not a flattering paint job on the C-64. Then again, Colnago doesn't do cool paint jobs anymore.

    personally, I am surprised by the lack of enthusiasm. I think this year mapei's is fabulous, it's different and refreshing. to have white all the time with same design in same place is boring to me.

    That's kind of the point. It's a classic paint job. Classic things should be left alone. The metallic blue really does kill it.

    If those are them, 'Nago has done an outstanding job.

    Not surprise at all. I think there was a time for the Mapei paintjob and that time is due past.

    Actually that’s not true.

    Mapei’s heyday was 2 decades ago.

    And that is the “sweet spot” for Nostalgia, as the young Mapei fans from then are now on their 50’ so maybe a young guy on their 20’s could only dream of a C40 Colnago then, but now they can afford to buy these bikes.

    If you think about it is like that for all the Nostalgia big hits, take for example the TV shows like Happy Days, about young people on the 50’s was a hit on the 70’s. And That 70s show was a hit on the 90’s.

    Now we are seeing a lot of 90’s nostalgia going on, like the Adidas EQT and many others

    Nah. Sure, the buttoned-down crowd might find it loud & garish but to me it's good looking. It caresses the eye, it doesn't assault it. The style is not so much busy as exuberant.

    As I have read that silver Mapei was a one off bike made in 2018 for the 25th ( hence silver ) anniversary of The Mapei team, made for Giorgio Squinzi, the CEO of Mapei Group.

    It was never planed to be offered to the public

    To the OP :

    why don’t you buy my C64 ? It’s barely used and showroom floor like conditions. Just sayin’..

    Good luck and congratulations, that frame is hideous to me. It is overly busy and generally awful. I am stoked that you love it, I’m sure it has associations that give you joy. That’s awesome. But to me? Blech!!!!!!!
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    Maiden Voyage

    Definitely a great bike, not as plush as the C40 or C50 but it wants to be pushed hard
