New Bikes for Bbox next season

I loved the Time's Bbox were riding this season. I thought they were probably the best looking bikes in the entire peloton. Also the first thing i thought when hose 4 Bbox riders crashed on that one corner in the TdF team time trial was:

"Shit there goes 40 grand down the drain"

Back on topic though this article says they are riding Colnago next season.

Here is the translated version:

From Some Italian Website said:
Jeaanie René Bernaudeau, team manager of Bbox Bouygues Telecom, announced on the website of the team that next year its riders pedaling riding Colnago.
also confirmed the arrival of three riders: it's Freddy Bichot and Nicolas Vogondy (from Agritubel) and Anthony Charteau (Caisse d'Epargne). Five runners unconfirmed: it is the French
Julien Belgy, Olivier Bonnaire, Arnaud Labbe and Rony Martias and Russian Evgeny Sokolov.

A shame. The Time frames looked great. Any word who Time might be supplying in 2010? I presume they will continue to supply someone.

Really? I think they're just plain ugly. Even if they'd give me one for free, i would say "no thanks".

Or accept it, take off the wheels and sell the rest on ebay.

Colnago will also sponsor Team Type 1 as well as the CSF Inox team. I have to admit I found it weird when they sponsored Rabobank and Milram, they rode with Shimano Dura-ace gear, but their continental teams rode with Campagnolo Record. I don't knowabout anybody else, but riding an Italian bike with a Japanese groupset does not seem right.
