Top Features of the Colnago CLX 3.0 105 Black 2012
Built for the discerning road enthusiast the Colnago CLX 3.0 105 looks Italian enough to get you excited but is built using some of Japan's more sensibly priced kit to keep the bank manager happy too. Elegant and understated the CLX is a classy package.
- Frame Material: Carbon
- Wheel Size: 700c (622)
- Fork Material: Carbon
- Model Year: 2012
- Brake Type: Caliper
- Chainset type: Compact
- Groupset Manufacturer: Shimano
- Cable Routing: External
The carbon CLX 3.0 frame uses a monocoque front triangle featuring an internally routed rear brake cable, matched to a lugged rear triangle which includes box-section chainstays to deliver maximum efficiency under power. The frame's seatstays are elegantly swept which while attractive also deliver the useful benefit of a more comfortable ride particularly over longer distances. Paintwork is clean and understated and underlines in the CLX the quality and class of the manufacturer. The frame includes twin bottle cage mounts, externally routed gear cables and a replaceable forged aluminium rear derailleur hanger.
The ClX 3.0 105 features, as you might expect, a nearly full complement of Shimano's tried and tested 10 speed 105 componentry. 105 features in the integrated shift and brake levers and both front and rear derailleurs. Brakes are a set of Colnago-branded dual pivot calipers and the compact chainset is Shimano's non-series R565 model which means hill climbing should be less difficult than on a standard double.
The wheelset is Shimano's R501 model which gives you aluminium rims laced radially at the front and 2-cross at the back to Shimano's well sealed angular contact bearing hubs. These will serve you well as an everyday set of wheels and will be easy to service and durable for training miles too. Upgrading to a lighter set on race day will give you even more speed if you need it too.
The finishing kit is a good quality mix including a bar and stem from Deda and a post and seat from Colnago with a set of tyres from Michelin.
The complete bike looks clean and modern and with Ernesto's family name adorning the downtube has bags of Italian heritage too.

About the Colnago brand
Ernesto Colnago was born in Cambiago, a small rural village twenty kilometers east of Milano on February 9, 1932. Ernesto was just 13 years old, but to start work, he had to be at least 14. He changed the date on his working papers and so was hired as an assistant welder. It was 1954 when Colnago went out on his own in a tiny little workshop, his bicycles have been used by more than 100 professional team, 2,500 professional racers, who have won more than 7,500 wins worldwide. Champion riders of the caliber of Fiorenzo Magni, Gastone Nencini, Eddy Merckx, Giuseppe Saronni, Gianni Motta, Gibì Baronchelli, Michele Dancelli, Gianni Bugno, Oscar Freire, Johan Museeuw, Tony Rominger, Pavel Tonkov, Yaroslaw Popovych, Erik Zabel e Alessandro Petacchi, and many others, have ridden Colnago Bicycles to victory. As the great researcher and innovator he is, Colnago created the first frameset in carbon fibre in collaboration with Ferrari Engineering in 1986. The next year, the innovative straight-blade “Precisa” was created. In 1989, two years later, the dramatic Colnago “C35” emerged, an innovative monocoque carbon fibre frame in road racing & mountain bike versions. 1994 was a hallmark year when Colnago introduced the ground-breaking “C40” carbon fibre frameset for his 40th anniversary and still a reference point today. No other frame has won as much as the Colnago C40: 5X Paris-Roubaix and many World Championships. In 2000 another remarkable model emerged from Colnago’s atelier: the limited edition CF1, created in collaboration with Ferrari that quickly became a major success. Next was the CF2 dual-suspension mountain bike in 2002. After ten years of success in every segment, Ernesto Colnago launched the “C50” in 2003. It was the Fiftieth Anniversary of his company, a brand that has become synonymous with the best bicycles the world over, synonymous with the best products Made in Italy. This new carbon fibre composite frame quickly found success in both the competition and sales arena. And for 2004, for the official anniversary of Colnago, a special collectors item bicycle was created, the “50th Anniversary”. Ernesto Colnago continues to dream about and create bicycles appreciated by riders passionate about cycling all over the world. Don’t ask Colnago which of his bicycles is the best: his answer is always the same. “I’ve made a lot of bicycles, but the most beautiful is the one that is yet to come.” For more info on Colnago please feel free to view Bike Radar's article on them.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
The sizing details look a bit odd, they don't seem to cover my inseem measurement (86cm crotch to floor). I've got quite normal proportions being 6ft 1, so are the measurements taken from the ankle?
What would be the correct size for me?
