For most things, sixty-four years isn’t much to celebrate. But for Colnago, there’s plenty to celebrate. Always keen to celebrate any type of occasion, Ernesto Colnago has brought forth it’s newest form of celebration, the Colnago C64 frameset.
Colnago’s newest road bike uses a mix of old and new, but is a hefty 200 grams lighter than it’s predecessor, the Colnago C60. It uses a lugged frame design, but they’ve combined the seat tube and seat tube lug to make one continuous piece in the name of improved ride quality and comfort. But the newly-asymmetric chainstays, a redesigned headtube lug, and ribbed steerer tube offer additional stiffness and much more-precise handling. Colnago uses with their ThreadFit82.5, which combines BB30 stiffness rigidity and the durability of a threaded bottom bracket; this time around, Colnago partnered with Ceramic Speed to offer best in-class bearing performance.
Few lugged road bikes can ever be considered aerodynamic, but the C64 is certainly unique in that regard. A reshaped downtube offers a bit more of a teardrop design, and the downtube bottle cage mount is recessed, like that on a Pinarello Dogma. As always, it features it’s spine construction for optimal stiffness and direct handling.
What’s surprising about the C64 is how race-ready it feels. Geometry is slightly less-aggressive than what one would find on the Colnago Concept or V2r, but it’s still clearly a WorldTour-worthy bike. Impressive out-of-saddle stiffness, direct handling, and legendary build quality make the C64 one of the best road bikes money can buy.
The Colnago C64 frameset features a frame, matching fork, headset, and carbon fiber seatpost. C64 is available in a class-leading fourteen sizes, (42-60 cm) in both traditional and sloping geometry options, in six colorways.
