I am Colnago distributor and cause of that i had the opportunity to test them all.
Personally i prefer the ride of the V1-R comparing to C60.

Despite the position of the rear brake, both brakes work fine without any issues.

Please have in mind that if you order a disc frame that is not painted yet,you will receive it without the Ferrari logo.
All rim brake frames that Colnago has in stock(not much) they will come with the ferrari logo.

The differences with the new V2-r are not significant.



Nestor,

do you know if the V2-r will still have the Direct Mount brakeset



Hi Nismosr

Yes the information is that V2-R will come with direct mount brakes.
Another change is the hidden seat clamp.(similar to concept frame)
We only got a couple of photos but they do not show the full bike

Hi
I have not seen the frame in full yet.We only got a couple of photos for internal use only(showing the chain and seat stays)
While i am clearly not an expert on EE brakes i cant see why they will not work.What may be the issue?
I will visit the factory at the end of the month and i will see all the frame details in person

Concerning pricing John,while we do not received price yet i am expecting to be retailed like the v1r around 2800euros

Photos will be released on Monday after the official presentation.

At the moment they only sent a couple of photos to distributors for internal use.

Yes... agree with @corky... they got rid of the under chainstay brake mounting, but then routed the rear brake cable through the headtube. Ugh!

It's an aero italian race bike. I'm sure it will fit at least 35s.
