I thought that frozen colour is also some sort of "custom", becouse its not availiable as an option on Colango.com
Unsure why it is not included on Colnago's product page. I just ordered a C64 disc from Cicli Corsa and the RCRD - Frozen Red color option was only listed under the sites Art Decor product page for the C64 disc, and was an additional cost over the base price.
Michael - The Anaerobic Threshold is neither...

I love the C40. What size tyres are those and how much clearance is there in the fork with those wheels?

Hi Michael, this is a CT1. The tires are 25mm, they measure to right around 25mm (was expecting wider on these wheels). Fork actually has decent clearance, maybe 4mm. But on these frames, it's the Bstay brake bridge that gets tight; 2mm.

Thanks iwantone, that’s helpful. I have an HP B-Stay and thinking about new wheels for next year.

Hello all,

Here is my Colnago Dream Reflex with Chorus 12s and Campy Eurus wheels.

Planning to upgrade the wheels to Fulcrum Wind 40C (just for better look). Does anyone know if a modern 17C rim with 24.2mm outer width can fit in my old bike?

Shouldn't be a problem. I run Belgium+ wheels which are 21c and 25mm wide with 25c IRC tubeless tires. Just can't run anything bigger than a 25c tire tho, some 25s can be very tight. 28c rubs the chain stays.Image

Have heard a 23c would widen to 25c on 17C wheel, if yours can fit 25c on it, then fitting a 23c on the wheel should have no problem.

The 5.4kg build video had me mesmerised from the outset. At every step, I questioned the choices that I made in my C64. For example, should I have used the THM cranks siting on my shelf? ...maybe not, because I love the shift quality of the campagnolo front chainrings/cranks, and besides I'm enjoying 165mm cranks and the shortest THMs are 170mm. Darimo seatpost? ...love the idea, but wrong colour. And so on. In the end, I appreciated the film but happily rode away on my 'heavy' 6.3kg c64. Oh, and surely the builder deserved a ristretto at the end rather than a filter coffee!

im in the same boat. I love the build for what it is, but i like the look of the Colnago seapost and the shifting with the aftermarket chainrings on Campy EPS drivetrains is suboptimal. Fun build to watch regardless.

Hello Colnago connoiseurs,
Getting 40 years old I'm getting ready to step away from my modern aero Venge and other ultra-modern discbrake-bikes and I'm willing to get back to the classics. My first build was an 'old' Izalco max rimbrake frame with Super Record 12v
Now I'm ready to get me a Colnago...but I'm in doubt: C64 or V3RS? Both in sizing 54S would fit me great.
I'm living in Flanders, sometimes riding cobblestones but I like to to things like Liege BAstogne Liege too (although I do have the Izalco Max 6.3kg for that too) but I'm not a real climber weight-wise...
