What Our Customers Are Saying

“I really wanted the new 2018 Colnago V2-R disc, but it wasn’t going to be available for months. Bill wisely encouraged me to wait for the disc frameset and not get the rim break version. I am glad he talked me into waiting because I love the disc breaks on the V2-R. This is an amazing bike and Bill and the team did an amazing job on the build, with great attention to detail to make the build super clean. Thanks a ton.”

Colnago Frame Design

The perfect bicycle must be balanced. It must be made to fit you, not the other way round. That’s why we make as wide a range of sizes as possible of our frames, with 22 off-the-peg sizes in our Colnago C64 & and the option of custom fit for riders with special requirements.

Balanced handling is vital too. Colnago invented modern bicycle racing geometry and has refined it to perfection with handling that is unwaveringly accurate but stable at speed, so a long day in the mountains is a battle against the gradient and your rivals, not against a twitchy bicycle.

Colnago ride quality is rooted in the idea of balance too. A frame must be stiff, to convey your power to the road, but it must not be harsh. Features like our 3PRS internally-ribbed tubes and over-sized chainstays with leaf-shaped seatstays simultaneously improve rigidity and dissipate road shock.

Frame integrity is a crucial aspect of Colnago design. Our frames and forks are tested in the Colnago Lab to withstand impacts far beyond international standards, and to retain their strength after impact. That means your Colnago can still be ridden to the finish if the worst happens.

We’re always looking for ways to improve our frames. New ideas start with Ernesto Colnago’s sketches, and then computer-assisted design, finite element analysis, and rapid 3D prototyping allow us to test new ideas in days. Tomorrow’s Colnagos are already on the drawing board.

Bill

Just checking in with an update on the C60 since I’ve been riding it for a while now.

As you already know, this bike is truly amazing! Without a doubt, the best road bike I’ve ever ridden. It’s compliant yet, quick to accelerate when you ask it to.

The second ride ever, I set the 4th fastest decent from the 25 mile marker on Mosquito Ridge all the way down to the circle bridge. 15 miles at an average speed of 38 mph for 15 minutes. The bike is so freaking stable!

People ask me on a regular basis what I think and I have nothing but positive comments. Never so much as a mis-shift and the brakes are powerful. You build one hell of road machine man.

Greg is digging his as well. He set a few PRs on his first ride out.
