The Colnago C64 is the result of 2 years of brilliant research and it all stemmed from its first alliteration in As with all the C series, the C64 still remains as one of the few frames still entirely handmade in Italy. The C64 has had some huge improvements done to not only reduce weight but also to improve the ride quality.
Lug construction is similar to the C60 aside from the seat stays, seat tube and seat cluster which is now moulded into one single lug. Another subtle change made is in the Bottom Bracket Lug which has seen the external cable guide replaced with an integrated one, giving the bike a much cleaner look and feel. Performance has been improved with the Caliper versions only compatible with Direct Mount brakes.
Established by Ernesto Colnago who began working on bikes at the humble age of His passion for bikes was such that he forged the date on his working.
If there is one notable feature to the vintage lightweight racing bicycle market it is the variability of prices. Often, that is the result of a lack of market information. If somebody were to call a few people who deal in vintage lightweights, or perhaps ask a VRBN subscriber, then they would have a reasonable amount of market knowledge. Instead, many buyers and sellers enter the market only once – i.
In such a circumstance, the price it is advertised at may be far below current market levels. Sometimes, though, they make the opposite mistake. If an older bike is well abused but the seller thinks it is a much better bike than it really is, then the price may be way too high. Such a mistake is common with production bikes that were originally expensive but in reality were rather mediocre. Prices also vary considerably even when buyers and sellers are well versed in the field.
First Ride: Colnago C60
In , when aged only 20, Ernesto Colnago handed in his notice at the Gloria bike factory to set up on his own in Cambiago, his small hometown to the north-east of Milan. The premises measured no more than 25sqm and Colnago was indebted to his father for cutting down the family mulberry tree to provide wood for his workbench. A keen racer himself, Colnago was soon building wheels for some of the best Italian racing cyclists of that era, including Giorgio Albani, the multiple stage winner of the Giro d’Italia, and the legendary Fausto Coppi.

Now that early carbon is decades old, is it retro cool? By Matthew Loveridge. Carbon is old enough to vote. Now that carbon is so well established, does it finally hold retro appeal? New stuff is automatically edgy and exciting. To modern eyes, these bikes look utterly dated. The main frame tubes appear oddly skinny next to an enormously chunky seat cluster and head tube, while the 1in quill stem, external headset and slim fork legs look positively emaciated.

The last couple of years have seen an explosion in aero bikes and equipment, with manufacturers fighting to out-integrate one another.

Pro riders are often resistant to change and some have previously voiced safety concerns over the use of disc brakes in bunch racing.

Colnago Super Timeline of details in CR era. Members of the Classic Rendezvous email list now Google group c ooperated in collecting Colnago bicycle features to help zero in on the time of manufacture. There are still numerous blanks and some conflicting thoughts – all are presented below. I will update the list and send out as appropriate. Also, do keep in mind that “dates” are subject to variation, no one believes that Colnago made these changes on January 1st of each new year and therefore use them as a guide to the year of manufacture or availability.
Lugs: Cutouts in all 3 lugs, all clubs are the same size. Note however that one experienced member recalls differently “I’ve never seen a Super with cutouts all the same size. That would be physically impossible anyway,based on the sizes of the lug tangs. There is general consensus on this too but note again that an experienced member believes the single cut-out came earlier; may have been as early as Fork Crown:. Some may also have Vagner forged crown, two holes in sides. I think that came in by or so.
The first generation Mexico’s had no “Colnago” in the crown, and their first year was

How to tell the manufacturing date of Colnago from the 70’s to the 80’s. dmonster Their quality when down because of the bike boom period.
The following article was originally printed in cycling weekly, march 27 Is it wrong for Colnago to produce a race bike for the masses? After all, both the Madone and the C50 are pinnacles of their respective ranges and the Dream B-Stay has been around for a few years – in fact the model we’re testing is the incarnation. Don’t worry, we aren’t testing an out-of-date model, the Dream will be available for this season.
Top End Features Construction of the frame is made with Columbus renowned Airplane tubing, and at the rear carbon-fibre chainstays are used along with the carbon B-Stay. Colnago uses the same B-Stay throughout its range of bikes. There are five versions to choose from depending on the frame size, so they are well tuned to a specific rider’s dimensions and not a ‘one size fits all’ solution.
Up front Colnago maintains its use of a one-inch headset and the fork of choice is the monocoque straight-bladed Colnago Force. Our 59cm test frame on its own weighed a respectable 1, grams. Aluminium main tubes and a carbon-fibre rear end are nothing new, but what really matters is how the tubes feel when built up into a complete bike. It’s a common misconception that the Master profile tube shape creates a torsionally stiffer tube for the same diameter. In reality this is not the case, torsional stiffness is not improved.
All the same, the Dream is a torsionally rigid frame, and provides a positive feel when riding in a high torque situation, such as when climbing or sprinting. This good torsional rigidity is thanks to a couple of factors, namely the large diameter tubes and judicious use of variable wall thicknesses.
