What Our Customers Are Saying

“Hi Bill, I just wanted to take some time to let you know (of course you probably already know) what an amazing team you have at Bicycle Emporium. I came to pick up my bike and bike rack with a plan to hit the trail immediately after. Again, friendly, great service…Billy helped me put the bike rack on my car (it only fell off once on the way to the River – haha just kidding). My bike didn’t really fit on the rack but he new the fix – an extender bar – and wa-la, bike on the rack. I went over to hit the trail and was wondering what the ride was going to be like. In the past after I’ve picked up my bike at other shops, I’ve had a loose crank, shifting out of adjustment, and I forget what else. But my bike felt like new. I could tell a big difference in smooth shifting (and yes duh lol bent chain ring). Sooo, to sum it up, you have a great thing going on up there, a great team. Even the people that I didn’t have interaction with, were friendly with the other customers (yes, I was watching 😎 , and all your employees just appeared happy. How is it that EVERYONE in there is friendly and great customer service? Whatever it is, great job and thanks for everything. Ciao!”

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

“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.”
