The Colnago C59 Traditional 2011 Road Bike Frameset is Colnago's new top of the range, custom made 100% carbon fibre racing machine. The C59 was four years in development. Designed, built and painted in Italy and with a frame weighing about one Kilo the C59 features a classic master-shaped internally ribbed top tube and down tube to maximise stiffness, which is further increased by square chainstays and seatstays. There is no one perfect material for a bicycle frame. All have advantages and disadvantages. A very strong material might be very light, but fatigue too quickly for the repeated stresses of cycling. Or it might simply be too expensive for some riders' budget. At Colnago they use a range of materials to balance these factors. The immense strength and versatility of carbon fibre has made it the most popular material for top-quality road racing bicycles. Colnago use Toraya carbon fibre in a variety of grades and tyes according to the specific requirements of the frame or component. Their one-piece frames use pre-preg carbon cloth, laser-aligned in a mould and heated under pressure to form a seamless, strong, light unit.
