Developed with input from cycle-cross legend Sven Nys, the Cross Prestige is the ultimate carbon fibre cross frame. A monocoque front triangle makes it tough and light, while lugged seatstays and chainstays maximise tyre clearance. The lightness will also be appreciated when shouldering the Cross Prestige, as will the unique support between the top tube and seat tube developed at Sven Nys?s request to increase carrying comfort when on the shoulder. Colnago works with the renowned Italian composites firm ATR to develop the high modulus carbon fiber used in Colnago frames. ATR is also known for providing composite components for Ferrari and Porshe auto racing teams.

I'll try to keep a long story short. I like to build up my own bikes and have many other of my builds here on RBR. I had a good bit of spare parts and decided I'd look for a name brand frame on ebay. I found a 2011 Raleigh Prestige Frame that was brand new for $565 shipped. The frame came with f ... Read More »

I have posted about my bike in a few forums as i am trying to gather info on it. I have a Rossin Prestige Team frame w ... Read More »
