For those who are looking for a new road bike and consider both fashion and function a priority, Colnago Bicycles has just released one of its most exciting offerings for 2012. Named C59, this newly updated disc-equipped road bike is packed with a lot of impressive features.

Highlights of the Formula include Di2-compatible levers, very slim brake hoods, and a 140mm rotor with heat-dissipating aluminum carrier and mountain brakes-themed calipers. Like its fork, the chain stays and the seat stays of the rear of its main frame are also all new.

Nicely styled and specced, the 2012 Colnago C59 Disc Road Bike is one of the best Italian-made bikes on the market today. Also unique in the design of the road bike is its Artemis Disc matching wheel system, which features entirely carbon composite wheel rims as well as disc-specific hubs.

Designed for riders who are fond of urban jungles and adventures on the trails is the new 2012 Specialized Hardrock Disc Hardtail XC Mountain Bike. To make sure that the mountain bike ride is really fun, its stiff frame is matched with its 80mm smooth-travel SR Suntour fork.

What makes the bike more lightweight, compliant, and durable is its fully butted A1 Premium aluminum frame that comes with double Ore down tube. Over varying terrain, tunability and versatility are enhanced by the lockout, preload adjustment, and size-specific spring rates of the SR Suntour fork.

To keep the rolling resistance low, the knob height used in the Specialized Fast Trak LK Sport 60 TPI tires is decreased.
