The most experienced RusVelo rider Sergey Klimov caught everybody’s eye in the famous one-day classic of Scheldeprijs. It was for the very first time that the Russian team used the latest masterpiece of maestro Ernesto Colnago in a race. Colnago C60 looks different, and you notice it at the very first glance; at the same time, the heritage is here, from color scheme to the frame geometry.
The Colnago CLX was my first taste of the legendary Italian marque's ride. Delivered in a mid-priced package, it's a great all-round road bike. Pondering what I’d ride at this year’s Giro, this made a perfect platform for some serious component upgrades from Hed, Zipp, Easton, Zero Gravity, Tiso, Blackburn and more…
As a guy with the enviable access to ride a lot of different road bikes, I was long overdue in meeting the Colnago brand on a personal level. I hate to admit that I'd never actually ridden one of the most famous – even legendary – marques in cycle brands. So I was more than thrilled when Veltec Sports suggested I test ride Colnago's new carbon CLX.
