What Our Customers Are Saying

“Bill, I assembled the bike last Saturday and rode about 10 miles. The winds were in excess of 25 MPH so it wasn’t a real enjoyable venture. The bike on the other hand was great. I really enjoyed the blue tooth shifting, the bike geometry is a smooth ride, the Garmin is fun, the pedals/clips work great, etc. I’m happy with the purchase of this bike. And I’m glad I had the opportunity to do business with you. Once I get some miles under my belt, I’d like to have you make some tuning adjustments such as the seat, etc, either when you’re in LA or this summer I’ll stop by the store in Auburn. Thanks again.”

The Colnago E 64= Reviews are just fun.

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.
