Pierrick Fédrigo’s Colnago C59


BBox Bouygues Telecom is one of a handful of teams now to have the latest version of Colnago's legendary C50, in the shape of the C59. The details are slim on the ground for this new frame but the C59 uses internally reinforced tubes, particularly in the down and top tube, to resist torsional flex when sprinting and climbing.

A beefed up fork adds to these measures, and the rear has not been forgotten either, with rectangular-profile oversized chainstays to keep flex to a minimum.
