In 1994 Colnago started to produce their very successful model C40 — ‘C’ for carbon and ‘40’ to commemorate Colnago’s 40th year in business. Full carbon frame with Master profile carbon tubes bonded to carbon lugs. Ernesto Colnago solved the problem of how to make a carbon frame durable enough to win the toughest cobbled Classics yet light enough to soar up Alpine cols. That’s the reason why the C40 is the favourite bike of all time for so many people — including Sir Bradley Wiggins. Colnago could have created something with perhaps a swoopy, futuristic profile befitting itsrevolutionary design. Instead he kept the tubes ramrod-straight in the traditional style — albeit with the star-shaped cross-section that he had pioneered with the steel Master.
Happy to presenting the latest incarnation of C40, Colnago C40 HP B-stay, model with wishbone HP chainstay and titanium bottom bracket insert to increrase the stiffness. Fully built with Shimano Dura Ace 7800 groupset, Mavic Ksyrium SSC wheelset, ITM Colnago cockpit, Colnago Prologo saddle. Ready for serious riding.
One of the last real carbon bikes made in Italy. Impressive weight – 7.5kg! Fair price.
