Colnago V1-R

11 Mar 2015 00:44

I had told you guys a while back that I was building a V1-R as well. I just got it completed. I haven't ridden it much yet, but it feels much like the C60 so far, perhaps a little more "buzzy". Let the Shimano and Ferrari logo bashing begin :)

Beautiful bike. And anyone who bashes Dura-ace is silly.

I don't mind the Ferrari decal or the Shimano.I don't like so much steerer above the stem though and the ENVE decals are a bit OTT for my taste.Would love to go for a spin on it.Enjoy.

Yeah the steerer is still too long, I'm just riding it long enough to be sure I have the drop where I want it, then it will be shortened :) The wheels are actually from my Cervelo... the white labels are subject to change as well.

The ENVE logo needs bashing, way OTT on those deep sections, IMO of course. Enjoy.

....something interesting in the new Colnago catalog was brought to my attention by a friend looking to buy a new C60....see bottom of geometry chart linked below...

http://colnago.com/geometry-c60-2-2/?lang=am

...does anyone have any idea what the frames that are referred to as High look like....as in, did they just extend the Head tube or did they also change the angle of the top tube to a steeper rake ( which my friend worries would make these frames look "dorky like one of those Giant cartoon bikes"...apparently the sloping Colnagos up to this point had kept the slope reasonably subtle which in some eyes was the preferred aesthetic...)...

From the geometry numbers it does look like the stack height is the difference so I am guessing your guess it correct. the head tube is taller. As for the aesthetic, either you get a taller head tube or flip your stem and add spacers to get the correct saddle to bar drop. either way it is just as dorky if that is his judgement. the geometry numbers suggest the same angles so I would assume the main difference is height above the top tube.
I did see fewer sizes available too and many frames are now available in 2 CM increments rather than 1CM. More sloping sizes.

the answer is taller head tubes is the big difference;

Hs - Height head tube

FYI. My son has a Colnago Mexico to sell. It's a mid-80's, size 54 and in extremely good condition. Here is a link to view it. https://youtu.be/lxNcoJwrD_M He is asking $1500 for it.

Very nice bike, my size too! Good thing I live in Australia making the shipping ridiculous, because I'd end up single :D
