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.”

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 Materials

There is no one perfect material for a Colnago bicycle frame. All have advantages and disadvantages. A very strong material might be very light, but fatigue too quickly for the repeated stresses of cycling. Or it might be simply too expensive for some riders’ budget. At Colnago we use a range of materials to balance these factors.

The immense strength and versatility of Colnago carbon fiber has made it the most popular material for top-quality road racing bicycles. We use Toraya carbon fiber in a variety of grades and types according to the specific requirements of the frame or component.

Our one-piece (monocoque) frames use pre-preg carbon cloth, laser-aligned in a mould and heated under pressure to form a seamless, strong, light unit.

The first Colnago bicycles were made from steel and so steel is still close to our heart. The Colnago Master X-Lite’s Columbus DT15V tubing gets its strength from chromium, molybdenum and vanadium alloying elements and is butted and shaped to our exact specifications.

Aluminum is a great material for less expensive frames. Its low density and relatively high strength for its cost allow it to be built into light, rigid frames that meet the needs of a wide range of riders. With the addition of carbon fiber stays and fork it can be tuned for comfort.

Colnago takes advantage of recent advances in aluminium tubing, using hydroforming to shape and strengthen tubes in crucial areas such as the head tube and bottom bracket.

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!!!!”
