COLNAGO ROAD BIKES

Colnago are one of Italy's finest road bike manufacturers and have a rich heritage of more than 55 years of making bicycles. These cheap road bikes were the first to take advantage of working with carbon fibre and even today have worked with other esteemed names such as Ferrari in order to make the finest bikes around.

Indeed, this is how the Colnago Concept and C35 were made - bikes that have been used as a basis to develop even better versions such as the EPS and CX-

They are built with innovation in mind and this helps to deliver a competitive edge. This is made possible not only through fast and lightweight bikes but also by cutting down on road shocks and offering stiffness in its frames too.

The company does not shy away from a challenge either, and the finest evidence of this is when they provided Eddy Merckx with the fastest and lightest bike possible for its generation, helping him to break the one hour record - this might have happened in 1972 but even today quality road bikes are being made and used by many around the world.

Mentioned above, one of the most popular Colnago road bikes is the CX-1 evo - this has a carbon monocoque frame and has won various stages in competitive races. Its new look for 2011 is not only a facelift to make it even more attractive but it also has new cable routing for the rear brake. Definitely one to look out for!.
