Product Details

There are very few bicycle manufacturers that have the stature of Colnago and rightly so; since 1954 Ernesto Colnago has been making what are widely regarded to be some of the best bikes in the world for the likes of Arienti and Mercx. His bikes have had victories all over the place; at the Olympics, Le Tour and underneath Eddy when he broke the hour record in 1972. Colnago were and still are for both professional and amateur alike the bike of choice thanks to cutting edge innovation and impeccable quality.

The 2014 Colnago C59 is only slightly revised from previous model years. The main change is that the frames now come Mechanical AND Electronic groupset ready with all the necessary frame plugs and cable guides supplied. Factor in a £500 price drop for the standard models and the C59 is now an even more attractive proposition!

The ‘Omega’ carbon fibre frame was developed with the engineers at Ferrari and is completely hand built in the Italian factory. The Colnago C59 Italia retains the traditional lugged construction which allows for a massive 22 sizes (14 traditional and 8 sloping) which makes this almost a custom fit carbon frame. There are 150 different moulds in the factory and 30 different head tube lugs to accommodate all the variations. Each individual lug is made up of 12 layers of carbon cloth consisting of woven and uni-directional fibre sheets. The tubes are hand wound from pre-impregnated carbon fibre cloth as well; this allows the tubes to be laid up to control the composition and ride characteristics of each individual frame size.

Both the top tube and down tube are created using a mandrel to achieve the cloverleaf profile, the tubes include an internal I-beam rib which Colnago states is there to maximise stiffness. The top tube is tapered ranging from 40mm diameter at the head tube end where the larger stresses are placed down to 35mm at the seat tube end. At the front Colnago’s C-HS2 semi-integrated headset is used, being 1 1/8” top and bottom bucks the trend of most new frames as everyone seems to be going tapered. A Q2-Stay rear triangle has deep section chain and seat stays to keep thing stiff at the rear end. The flowing lines create a nice contrast to the almost harsh profile that the lugs create on the rest of the frame. All these parts are joined together using a high strength bonding agent which is then cured in a steel jig to enable perfect alignment.

It is worth noting the quality of the finish on any Colnago, but especially the C59. The frame goes through a process of lacquering, masking and painting several times to produce a finished product that looks as good as it performs. Each layer of paint is cured in an oven before the next layer is applied, creating an impeccably vibrant finish. We think that Colnago have really surpassed themselves with this frame, releasing it in no less than six colours to suit every taste, even the decals are laser cut before the lacquer. 

These frames are a work of art. The timeless heritage, the attention to detail, the traditional styling and the range of colour options make it a bike that we would want to keep for life. The Colnago C59 is without a doubt one of the very best frames to build up a dream bike available.
