Colnago C64 disc - Gallery

A close look at this Colnago Engineer's no-holds-barred go-fast race bike

Colnago recently launched the new C64, and as is pretty much standard for any modern race bike, the Italian brand also launched a disc version of the bike. We had the chance to shoot this special gallery of the new bike

This particular bike belongs to Davide Fumagalli, one of the engineers at Colnago, and it's tricked out with all sorts of delightful exotica — from the Lightweight Wegweiser clincher wheels fitted with Vittoria Corsa tyres to the CeramicSpeed jockey wheels, this is a no-holds-barred go-fast build.

The silhouette of the bike is largely the same as the rim-brake bike. The notable exception is the front end, which sees the brake hoses routed through the bars, where they then enter a prototype stem that feeds the cables down the steerer, eventually exiting at the very bottom of the left fork leg.

This is one of the cleanest cockpits I've ever seen for a disc road bike and Colnago deserves a gold star for its efforts here.

The silver-and-black paint job may look a little garish in these photos, but I can assure you it's a really tasteful finish in the flesh.

What do you think of the C64 disc? Are you too much of a purist to ride a disc Colnago? Or are you happy to see the famous Italian-marque-embracing discs? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
