Colnago doesn’t launch bikes quite so regularly as some other brands. It has, until now, had two high-end road bike models for riders to choose from (assuming you mean carbon): the new Colnago V4Rs, and the C68, which utilises a lugged carbon fibre construction. Now though, the historic Italian brand has released an all-road version of the C68, imaginatively dubbed the C68 Allroad, hoping to capture the hearts of riders who want the Colnago experience, with a little more capability.

All-road is a booming discipline, though it’s hard to define. Larger tyres and more relaxed geometry seem to be the hallmarks, but nothing so extreme as you’d expect from something gravel specific. Basically, they sit between the best road bikes and the best gravel bikes

He’s tried his hand at most cycling disciplines, from the standard mix of road, gravel, and mountain bike, to the more unusual like bike polo and tracklocross. He’s made his own bike frames, covered tech news from the biggest races on the planet, and published countless premium galleries thanks to his excellent photographic eye. Also, given he doesn’t ever ride indoors he’s become a real expert on foul-weather riding gear. His collection of bikes is a real smorgasbord, with everything from vintage-style steel tourers through to superlight flat bar hill climb machines.
