Colnago CX Zero Final Thoughts

Well the Colnago CX Zero was returned this afternoon after one final ride on her this morning with Jim & Al from the shop.  We met up in East Aurora and headed out east towards Holland/Wales and did some climbing.

The Cx Zero EVO is the bike for endurance.  A professional level racing frame, proven in the Spring Classics in Europe, the CX Zero Evo strikes a perfect balance between performance and comfort. The most versatile Colnago model, the CX Zero Evo has been developed to meet the demands of cycling in the greatest range of conditions.  “Classic” geometry for fit combines a taller head tube and slightly shorter top tube. This allows a more relaxed position of the shoulders and arms and a more open angle between the torso and thigh for more efficient pedaling during even the longest days in the saddle. The tube shapes of the rear triangle are designed to offer maximum vertical compliance while allowing clearance for up to 25mm tires. The seatpost is a smaller 27.2mm diameter.  All of these features promise more rider comfort and less fatigue. Your last mile will be as enjoyable as your first on the CX Zero Evo, on the most epic rides and on the most challenging roads

This bike climbed superbly and accelerated even better than it climbed.  It is a great bike in my opinion and if you are looking for a higher end carbon frame that will provide many miles of great comfort for many years to come then I would look no further than this bike.

MSRP was $4,600 and it is on sale for $4,100.00.  There are only 2 sizes available, a 50 & a 54, so I would hurry in and check this beauty out.

Up next will be a demo of the Specialized Roubaix SL4 Comp.  I am going to give you the differences that I felt during my rides and also hope to provide you some great information on the benefits of the Endurance Style Frames.

We are open Friday & Saturday from 10-6 so come on in with any questions, your shoes & pedals and go on a test ride!

Looking to do a Century?  Set aside 9/20 for Tom's Century Ride - Route to be determined (but I am pushing for a South Route)  More information to come!

Looking to do a Pittsburgh Dirty Dozen type ride?  Set aside 10/4 for the DD716 which is going to be a punishing 60 or so mile route over & through some of Erie Counties biggest hills and prettiest countryside.  Route is being analyzed so more will follow.  This is a no joke ride that will start and finish at Chestnut Ridge and will be a "controlled" roll to each climb where you will be set lose to challenge yourself and those around you!
