Strengths:    Great all around bike.

Weaknesses:    Ditch the original wheelset.

Bottom Line:   
I bought my CLX in November of 2013 after a TON of research. Over the past year, I've put on over 5k miles and absolutely LOVE this bike. The first thing I did after buying the bike was get rid of the original wheelset and replaced with Shimano Dura Ace C24 wheels. The only regret is that I stayed with the Ultegra setup and didn't go with Dura Ace.

Strengths:    Comfortable and quick. Very attractive bike. It handles the road very well.

Weaknesses:    The sloping design is a little difficult to size.

Bottom Line:   
I bought the frame on line and built it out with Athena. I could not be happier with this bike. This was my top choice when researching frames. I almost went several different ways but in the end am extremely happy with my choice. It absorbs the road well and is quicker than I had anticipated. There are no hills where I live so I can't testify to its climbing ability. Like all bikes though, it is the engine that truly matters. I do not race but I am extremely competitive. I highly recommend this bike.

Strengths:    To begin, the bike looks really cool and it should with an Italian name on it. I am a avid cyclist and have been riding since 1996. I have done some racing over the years. This bike is for a comfortable ride and exercise. You may not be able to afford a Ferrari but you can afford this bike.

Weaknesses:    Standard wheels are heavy by racing standards. If you want it to go faster you will have to invest in some lighter wheels and tires.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is no longer in production. It is a sexy cool looking bike. This bike was about $3,800 with the Ultegra package.

Colnago CLX 3.0 internal brake routing dilemma!!!

Hello All, I recently purchased a 2014 Colnago CLX 3.0 and have been trying to build this frame up. The problem is that the top tube internal brake cable hole (the one near the head tube) seems to be filled preventing me from feeding a cable into the hole. Is this normal for Colnago frames? ...
