The Colnago E 64= Reviews are just fun.

May 30, 2020

We’ve sold several E 64 bikes this season and customers just keep telling me how fun it is to ride again at a higher level.  Gilbert writes: Hello Bill, I bought the Colnago E64 this week from you.  Took it out for a serious ride yesterday.  WOW ….. IT IS AMAZING!  I am telling you […]

Colnago Alfa Carbon

To achieve both stiffness and light weight, our alfa carbon process combines a one-piece molded front triangle with bonded chainstays and seatstays.

The carbon lay-up is tailored to each bicycle to give the correct ride qualities for its purpose. We also select the particular grade of carbon used to keep bicycles like the CLX 2.0 and Ace affordable.

For the Colnago CX-1 and Colnago CLX 2.0, the carbon lay-up has different thicknesses in the areas where most torque and stress are found – such as the bottom bracket and head tube areas – to ensure better stiffness, power transfer and handling.

Alfa carbon allows us to tune the ride in other ways too. The CX-1 and CLX 2.0 use curved seatstays to improve braking and handling under braking. The CX-1 uses rectangular oversize chainstays for maximum rigidity and precise tracking, while the CLX 2.0 adopts the classic leaf-shaped chainstay used on the EPS.

To keep alfa Colnago carbon frames light it’s necessary for the use of materials to be as efficient as possible. Carbon composites need only a minimal amount of resin to hold the fibers together. To minimise the amount of resin we use pre-impregnated carbon fiber cloth, aligned by laser and cured under very high pressure. This eliminates voids to reduce weight and increase strength.

All alfa carbon bicycles go through the same tough design and crash-testing process as our EPS and steel models. They dramatically exceed CEN standards.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“Hey Bill – Just want to tell you how much I LOVE my C59 Di2 that you got for me….to say it’s changed my life would be an understatement…We had a Gila Monster Fun Ride thru’ the mountains last week and my bike passed everyone on the worst 3 mile climb whether I wanted her to or not!!! So I saw this frame on line and wondered if you can get it in a 50s….matte black with neon metallic green – I want to take my Di2 components off my Cervelo RS and sell that frame cause I don’t think I’ll ever ride anything but a C59 again…thanks so much for your help in taking my riding to the next level….you were great!!!!”
