Colnago C64 – The perfection of Made in Italy

A big part of the popularity of the Colnago C 64 here at Lifecycle UK is down to the legacy of the Colnago.

The C64 frame is made in Italy and is the result of more than 2 years of research and development. It represents the continuity of the history of a company that has collected successes and innovations for more than 60 years.

Despite increasingly lightweight and highly technical frames from the big bicycle brands at present, there’s something appealing about a bike that is handmade in Italy using a tube and lug construction with a tangible connection to historic racing bicycles.

This new frameset is released to celebrate 64 years of Colnago, the C64 is the product of one of the longest and most celebrated histories within modern frame-building.

Under the watchful eye of Ernesto Colnago, this Italian company has created some of the most desirable and highly advanced road bikes in the sport – and this C64 Disc is no different.

Integrated cable routing and efficient aerodynamics.

The Colnago C64 features integrated cable routing,  housing shifter cables within the handlebars and internally through the frame. This gives the bike a clean aesthetic as well as improving the aerodynamics.

The downtube, similarly, offers a recessed bottle cage area that helps to shield your bottle from air flow, further improving aerodynamic performance.

Campagnolo Chorus groupset

Shifting is provided for by Campagnolo’s 11-speed Chorus groupset, ensuring crisp and reliable shifting mile after mile. The carbon fibre shifters are ergonomically shaped for a comfortable long distance rides. The hydraulic disc brakes give you decent stopping power in dry and wet weather. And not to forget – the disc brakes save on braking loads on the carbon rims.

Colnago C64 – Key features:

  • Lightweight carbon frameset weighs 270 grams less than it’s predecessor
  • Campagnolo Chorus groupset ensures wonderfully intuitive shifting
  • Bora One wheelset is lightweight for efficient climbing
  • Hydraulic disc brakes lend powerful stopping power in all weathers

Our Verdict:

We recommend the C64 beacuse it is clearly the result of two years of  research and development and by all accounts – the C64 is the result of a serious depth of engineering innovation. The C64 Disc frameset weighs a full 270 grams less than it’s predecessor, the C60.

Colnago’s trademark star-shaped frame tube and unique carbon lugs, meanwhile, ensure that the bike is incredibly stiff – so you can put the power down whenever you need to.
