The time of buying a bike is always delicate. Once the color and model have been chosen, the decision remains on which size is better for you. Age, training level, flexibility of the back often play a great role. Here are some practical indications to understand more.

The following chart provides a rule of thumb approach to determine your Colnago bike size, based on your height. This is a simple approach to a complex situation, this is clear, but could be accurate for most cyclists.

In many cases the height can be halfway between one measurement and another. it is to be known that a small size configures a more aggressive, “racing” riding position, the bicycle will be more brilliant and agile, while the next size configures a more comfortable riding position and the bike will be more stable.

This is intended as an indication, therefore the final decision has to be finalized together with the support of your Colnago dealer.
