Should you buy the V2-r?
The V2-r is an interesting bike in the Colnago range. It's not a
full-blooded aero road bike in the same way the Concept is, and nor
does it evoke the heritage of Italian handmade carbon frames in the
same way as the legendary C60.
But the V2-r is lighter, more aerodynamic and more modern
looking than the C60, and lighter and arguably prettier than the
Concept. IF you're not won over by the tradition of the C60 and
don't need the full aero speed of the Concept, the V2-r looks to
strike a good balance. It has the right credentials to be a fast
and responsive bike for racing, and light enough for tackling a
mountainous gran fondo.
There's no denying the C60 is popular with Bespoke customers,
but we recently built this extraordinarily sleek
V1-r with SRAM eTap, and maybe there's enough going for the new
V2-r to tempt customers away from the C60? We'll see…
If you like what you see, the V2-r frameset is going to retail
for £2,999 with a choice of frame colours to choose from, the Art
Décor models being £3,399.
