Your New Colnago C68
FULL CUSTOM IN TITANIUM
Colnago love to offer customers the best possible riding experience and they're convinced that a perfect fit on the bike is the key.
To do this, not only do they offer custom sizing on our full carbon frame, but they're moving things forward with new technologies, with additional manufacturing.
They're now offering a second version of the C68, boasting 3D printed titanium head tube (upper) and seat tube/top tube cluster pieces.
Thanks to this they're able to offer precise custom geometry and sizes if required.
FROM LUGS TO PARTS
The number of parts that complete the frame is the same as with the previous C series (C64).
Even though from an aesthetics point of view, its lines and styling may be more similar to that of a frame manufactured in one piece.
There are still some visible joints on the C68 to trace back to there roots, while other joints would appear invisible due to the new streamlined design.
The fork changes from the previous TFS 'D' shape with the complex internal rib and the full length bonded metal thread bolt for a much simpler, elegant and lighter round 1"1/8 tube.
To run the brake housing inside they have adopted a special patented eccentric headset system, without having to use the larger cumbersome and heavy 1.5" bearing.
The C68 now boosts a revised bottom bracket, with the switch from their previous TF82.5 to a more "standard" and easy to find T47.
The system works the same way, with an oversized bb shell and internal bearings housed in alloy threaded cups.
You can assemble your C68 with a standard BB from Sram and Campagnolo, while you can use premium products such as CeramicSpeed, Chris King and many other offerings for compatibility with Shimano 24mm axles.
The new split headtube is now stronger, lighter and more customizable than ever.
The new layout allows stack and reach variations, along with improved stiffness for an enhanced riding experience.
Returning to a round steerer tube allows them to put a touch of "we ride too" into the bike.
Everyone needs, at some point, a multitool to face every small adjustment that may be required during an epic or not so epic ride (like a flat tire).
So they integrated that tool into the headset top cap.
Rotate and pull, that's it.
