Some companies release cross bikes as a hybrid model, where the bike can also be used as a commuter. This is not the case for the 2011 Colnago World Cup, a true cross racing bike.
The Colnago 2011 World Cup features a fully redesigned frame. Last year, Colnago used 6000 series aluminum, and in 2011 the World Cup upgrades to a 7000 series aluminum. A hydroformed frame and shoulder are reinforcements that add to this strong cross bike for the next year.
Furthering the 2011 World Cup is a double welded and reinforced head tube, semi integrated and replaceable cups, tapered butted frame, and an easy shouldering triangle connecting the top tube and down tube.
The forks on the World Cup 2011 are full carbon, including the steerer. Last year, they were aluminum.
You can purchase the Colnago 2011 World Cup as a frameset or a complete bike, which is packaged with Shimano 105 gruppo.
Available in black/red/white only, and retails for $1,889.
