There were a few new Colnago bicycles on display at the Sea Otter Classic but it was the C60 Anniversary Edition that caught our eye. This is a limited run of 60 that were built last year. It is a C60 with upgraded brakes and a few other highlights.
The lugged carbon construction itself is very unique and the brakes are custom made for Colnago by a Norcal company called The Hive. Mountain bikers will recognize the brand, as they specialize in many different trail-oriented components and parts. The brakes are direct mount, like Colnago uses on their V1-r model (minus the V1-r rear brake placement). Despite what the name plate implies, the only titanium part on this bike is the anniversary plate itself.
The Anniversary Edition is a limited run of 60 bikes and Colnago USA actually has 3 left for sale. If you’ve got the means, this bike will run you $16,000 with Campagnolo Super Record gruppo, Selle San Marco Colnago carbon saddle, Campy Bora carbon wheels and even includes a custom carbon chain catcher.
