For those unfamiliar with the C64’s lineage, the C-series is a handmade carbon bicycle dynasty. It’s iconic for its crimped tube shapes and carbon lugs yet harks back to the stylish looks of classic steel builders. All C-bikes have always been available in custom geometry, and they’ve been at the forefront when it comes to technology, too.
While some have complained that the C64 looks very similar to its predecessor, a major visual change is in the seat tube and seatpost. Where the C60 used a lug to join the top tube, seat tube and seatstays, the C64’s lug and seat tube are moulded as a single piece. It means the frame is a little more like a monocoque carbon frame and can use the same aerodynamically shaped seatpost as Colnago’s V2-R.
One of the biggest changes is a very simple one. Where the C60 struggled to fit 25mm tyres, the C64 boasts clearance of at least 28mm.
In a polls of professional riders taken every year since the introduction of the C40 in 1994, when asked what bike they would most prefer to ride the overwhelming choice has been the Colnago C-frame.
