Colnago’s Limited Edition C59 Italia
The main attraction at Colnago’s booth at this year’s InterBike was the 2011 Limited Edition C59 Italia.
The Colnago 2011 limited edition C59 Italia was made to recognize the Colnago C59, thus limiting the C59 Italia to a symbolic number of 59. As you may know, in past years, Colnago released other limited bikes: one in collaboration with Ferrari (CF 7), and the Colnago Master (celebrating 55 years of Colnago), which was last year’s limited model on display.
On display was 1 of 59 of the 2011 C59 Italia limited editions. With its Di2 battery pack concealed, the highly limited Colnago is sleek in design. Do you want to know where the battery is placed? The only way to know is if you buy one from Colnago, informed Colnago.
Everything about the limited Colnago C59 Italia shines, including the small section of brake cable exposed (resembles metal piping) and the sheet metal like bar tape. The majority of the bike features a white and metallic silver flake scheme.
You will not be able to walk into your local bike shop and pick this up. If you want one of these, you’ll have to reach out to Colnago. Retail price has yet to be established.
