Colnago C68 Road Carbon Frameset
Colnago is well known for its revolutionary carbon fibre road bike, the C40 was first released in the mid-1990s. Fast Forward to the all-new C68 which is a representative of what Colnago stands for Carbon, Cambiago and Class. Founded in 1954 the C68 now represents the “Made in Italy” tradition.

What elevates Colango road frames above others in the market is a passion backed with knowledge and experience that runs through every tube. Colango road bike frames are as iconic and rich as Palmares. Every Colango bike frame is the result of Ernesto’s never-ending quest for innovation.

The Colnago C68 is the pinnacle of the evolution of Colnago history, it’s the lug construction at its extreme development, and it’s where 68 years of frame design meet the future. C68 is simply the new milestone. The all-new split headtube is now stronger, lighter and more customisable than ever. Parts are reduced from 8 (C64) down to 6, this way they are saving weight (less bonding area) and machining/gluing time. The C68 fork has been completely redesigned, it is more stiff and resistant and weighs 40 grams less with an external rib shape to give the rider more comfort but also to increase the ride quality.

Fork

The fork changes from the previous TFS ‘D’ shape with the complex internal rib and the full-length bonded metal thread bolt for a much simpler, elegant and lighter round 1″1/8 tube.

To run the brake housing inside we have adopted a special patented eccentric headset system, without having to use the larger cumbersome 1.5″ bearing.

Bottom Bracket

The C68 now boosts a revised bottom bracket, with the switch from our previous TF82.5 to a more “standard” and easy-to-find T47.

The system works the same way, with an oversized BB shell and internal bearings housed in alloy threaded cups.

You can assemble your C68 with a standard BB from Sram and Campagnolo, while you can use premium products such as CeramicSpeed, Chris King and many other offerings for compatibility with Shimano 24mm axles.

From Lugs to Parts

The number of parts that complete the frame is the same as with the previous C series (C64).

Even though from an aesthetics point of view, its lines and styling may be more similar to that of a frame manufactured in one piece.

There are still some visible joints on the C68 to trace back to our root, while other joints would appear invisible due to the new streamlined design.

Headtube

The new split headtube is now stronger, lighter and more customizable than ever.

The new layout allows stack and reach variations, along with improved stiffness for an enhanced riding experience.

Integrated Multitool

Returning to a round steerer tube allows us to put a touch of “we ride too” into the bike.

Everyone needs, at some point, a multitool to face every small adjustment that may be required during an epic or not-so-epic ride (like a flat tire).

So we integrated that tool into the headset top cap.

Rotate and pull, that’s it.

Other Features

The frame weight for a raw size 485 is around 925gr, just 10gr more (935gr) for the titanium version.
