The C59, four years in development, has a distinctive look in a world where frames are beginning to all look the same. It’s modern yet nicely traditional at the same time, a pleasing balance of conservatively oversized tube profiles and masculine [eh? – ed.] sections.
The C59, handmade in Cambiago, Italy – a fact confirmed to the lucky owner by the sticker on the back of the seat tube – uses custom-made high-modulus carbon tubes and lugs to build the company’s lightest-ever frame. There’s just enough oversizing, with the unmistakeable Colnago signature Master-profile top and down tubes and tapered head tube.
