Just picked this one up yesterday after having to wait a week for it to get here. Bike is all carbon fiber, except stem and handlebars and has 105 cassette and chain and Ultegra components. It rides like a dream and handles even better. I still need to get the computer mounted, an under-seat carry bag and replace the white bar tape with some Zipp washable in red, which is currently on backorder. And yes! The branding is on the top and bottom of the downtube. It's the only road bike model that they have done this to. Only other one that has this type of branding is one of their cross bike models. All the others are on the sides of the downtube.

Thanks all for the compliments. I am really enjoying the bike although it may need a few more tweaks to get some adjustments corrected. I like the fact that it doesn't have Colnago, in large letters, plastered on every piece of the frame to the point that it looks like a billboard on wheels. Too many of the manufactures are doing that and it makes their bikes really look cheap, in my opinion.
