Colnago C60
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The C60 comes with a historic brand name and quality craftsmanship, with looks and ride feel to back it up. It’s a really nice machine to ride – fast on the flat and with good handling both up and downhill. But it lacks the more modern specification and aero features of many of its competitors at this price, so ultimately you’re buying into the Colnago brand and its mystique, along with the chance to choose your own specification, as much as the C60’s design features.
