This was clearly seen with Colnago's 5 victories in 6 Paris Roubaix, one of the longest and the harshest race on both rider and machine. Colnago's unwavering commitment to building the most efficient and comfortable race frames can be seen in the C60'chain stay design.
Similar in design to the C60's front triangle, the tubes used for the chain stays are designed with internal ribs, ensuring optimum lateral stiffness. The comfort in the chainstays is achieved with a tube shape which tapers dramatically toward the dropouts. This provides a slight upward flexion and offers vertical complaice which actively dampens vibrations from the road. This vertical compliance will also act to increase rear wheel traction on rough roads.
