Closeout on 2016 Colnago CX Zero ALU Ultegra
Aluminum, as a frame-building subject matter, helps to keep getting better and better. The alloys keep bettering, as do the methods for manipulating the tubes. As such, the fabric is almost the equal of carbon fiber, as builders as good as Colnago can get very on the subject of the shapes created out of carbon fiber, thus delivering a bike that may be almost the equal of the carbon-fiber frame it’s based off of, more durable, and at a fraction of the associated fee. For this reason the Colnago CX Zero Alu is the sort of hot frame.
The Alu version shares a geometry with the CX Zero EVO. Bang off, it puts you in a comfortable, powerful position, identical to the bike that gets used on the WorldTour. The geometry is something Colnago is rightly proud of. They were amongst the primary companies to develop a frame for Paris-Roubaix, and have evolved the design as their knowledge has grown with feedback from top riders. The geometry is designed to provide you with a smooth, stable ride over rough roads. It also works to provide you with a smooth, stable ride wherever you go.
As their knowledge base increased, In addition they learned how you can further use the frame tubes to advance the ride quality. The swooping chain stays and skinny seat stays work to take in vibrations and bumps, their rear end working hard to avoid wasting yours. In addition they made sure to keep tire clearance generous, 28mm tires will have to fit, in order that your rolling rubber can aid within the suspension and efficiency of the ride.
The rest of the frame could also be helping minimize the effect rough roads may have on the rider whilst maximizing the ability used to drive the bike. Of particular importance are the taller, tapered head tube, shorter, flattened top tube, the thin seatstays, and the swoopy chainstays. The top tube, hiding a 1 1/8” to 1 ¼” steerer minimizes weight and maximizes lateral strength. The flattened top tube allows for vertical flex whilst resisting lateral flex. The rear end gives a lot of room for vibrations to play out before reaching the seat post and your saddle.
Many more of the design features of the carbon bike are found within the Alu as well. There’s a BB86 bottom bracket, which helps with both weight and stiffness. There’s Colnago’s proprietary headset, where the tapered steerer runs on bearings pressed into removable cups. And a carbon, straight-blade fork.
The Colnago CX Zero Alu gets you within the game.
