Colnago C60 OFMA Custom Build Road Bike
Providing supreme stiffness, rigidity and the luxurious comfort as is with any of Colnagos illustrious range of technologically supreme road bikes, the Colnago C60 OFMA Custom Build Road Bike takes a different approach to building up your dream bike, mainly because it’s already built with the highest performing components already!
The C60 follows the C59 in being a high end, race bike that is just as content to spend all day as a comfortable cruising steed, as it is in the rough and tumble of the peloton. The C59 won many plaudits for its stiffness, quality of ride and stunning looks. The C60 improves on this making a laterally stiffer, more comfortable and lighter frameset.
Colnago has spent years in development and made numerous changes from the C59. First, the headtube has been redesigned and new for the C60, they have included matching shaped lugs, steering away from the traditional Colnago round cross section tubing and instead plumping for a star design. This increases lateral stiffness and improves comfort over rough surfaces. The star design is a first for Colnago and shows they are embracing new design techniques.
Larger tubes continue on the seatstays, flatter and wider than ever before, reducing weight, increasing lateral stiffness and improving handling. The new design also provides a dampening effect, combining stiffness and suspension like qualities for a very comfortable ride.
The desire to provide the rider with the most comfortable ride continues on the chainstays with internally ribbed tubing providing immense lateral stiffness, yet the tapered shape, which seamlessly narrows towards the dropouts, provides a small degree of upwards flexion and dampens road buzz. This increased vertical compliance also improves handling and allows more grip to the rear wheel, especially over rough terrain.
Of course, with all these features, you need a wide range of components to push you further, and the Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 9070 drivetrain does just this. Supremely speed and reliability are provided through the electronic shifting, ensuring you never miss a beat, and the 11-28t cassette keeps you spinning up the toughest of gradients. Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 brakes are also integrated with the C60, giving the stopping power you need to descend with more confidence than you could’ve ever imagined.
Fulcrum Racing Zero Nite’s are the ideal choice for a bike of this nature, keeping your power connected to the road and not wasting any energy as you push on to topple those KOM’s. With Vittoria Corsa G Isotech clinchers as their sidekick, puncture resistance is drastically enhanced all whilst rolling resistance is lowered and grip is taken through the roof.
