Colnago C60 Disc Dura-Ace Di2

Handbuilt Beauty

Colnago has done a great job creating gorgeous paint jobs for their top-end C60.  Handbuilt in their factory in Italy, the C60 is a modern classic.  This particular C60 frame is no exception. It was built-up with Dura-Ace Di2 disc, Zipp 303 wheels, Shimano Pro Vibe handlebar and Prologo saddle. 


There is nothing in this image that is going to flex, except for the ultra-supple Vittoria G+ tires.


A 11-30 rear cassette mated to the 50/34 chainrings means plenty of gearing range.  The only part of this kit that is not full Dura-Ace are the SRAM rotors, which are required to be used with the Zipp wheels.  Note the change in the color of the cassette. The upper cogs are titanium to decrease weight.


Here is one more look up front. You can see the weave detail on the frame as well as with the Arundel cages. In case there was any doubt of the origins of this bike, there is a vibrant tricolour on the back of the seat tube.


The front side lets you know what bike you are looking at. 


The new Dura-Ace 9070 levers are an engineering marvel - fitting both the hydraulic master cylinder and the Di2 parts in a very small space.  The hidden button at the top of the hood is a nice touch. Not pictured is the Internal Di2 junction which is hidden in the drop of the right-side bar. 


Note the very trick looking front axle, hub, rotor and caliper set up.  Colnago uses their own Hexlock thru axle. Just put it in, turn 90 degrees and flip the lever and you are good to go.


Here is a close up of the Zipp 303 Firecrest tubeless-ready wheels. While tubeless is awesome for gravel, cross, mountain and fat biking, we are not sold on it yet for road. Thus, the well proven Corsa G+ with anthracite sidewalls that nicely match the metallic gray lugs. The valve has been taped to avoid rattling.


This particular livery, coded 'PLAN,' has been quite popular, so while we always hate building up similar bikes, it does happen. You cannot buy a bright red Ferrari and not expect to see another one the same color from time to time.
