2011 Colnago C59 Italia

Colnago C59

This year, the Colnago-sponsored pro teams on the Tour de France are riding the Colnago C59. Bike Radar just showed a few photos of it.

Colnago C59

It’s available right now for  £3,300 (frame, fork and headset). The BBox Bouygues Telecom pro team are riding it at the Tour de France this year. The frame has reinforced tube shapes so that it’s more rigid and resistant. The same goes for the fork. The chainstays are oversized and have a rectangular profile. Colnago claim that this keeps lateral flex to a minimum. It comes with internal cable routing and a place under the bottom bracket for the Di2 battery.
