The 2014 Colnago CX Zero Disc is a pro-level carbon-fiber bike made for long rides, hard rides, and rough roads.
As a result, compliance and stability are designed in. While the bike works great on rough roads, the benefits of the design work great on smooth roads as well. The road feedback is blunted and whatever lumps you ride over are absorbed by the frame. The result is greater comfort and less fatigue. Even with this factored in, the bike is still designed for throwing power down to the pedals, with incredible torsional stiffness thanks to the first-ever Colnago BB86 bottom bracket shell and the tapered 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" steerer tube.
Here are some of the key features of the 2014 Colnago CX Zero Disc.
The CX Zero Disc is a rarity in the bike world, a road bike built around rotor disc brakes. No doubt there will be more in the future, but Colnago had been eyeing the technology for some time and working on how to best mate discs with a road frameset. This is their answer.

Going with mechanical Shimano Ultegra means you have more tactile sensation while pounding rough roads. You'll have an easier time locating the shifts under heavy gloves. They limit your choice of brake to cable-pulled disc brakes, but Shimano's BR-R515 & SM-RT99 calipers, but to compensate for the reduced power, Colnago puts an adapter on the fork and installs a 160mm rotor. The rear remains 140mm.
Ultegra shifting and cranks offer pro-level performance on an amateur's salary. The ergonomics and feel are the same. The 50/30 compact chain rings and 11-25 eleven speed cassette offer a wide, tightly-spaced range of gears.
This is a bike designed to last as long as the ancient roads that support classic racing. While this bike is configured for mechanical shifting, it can easily be switched for electronic, with the battery run either externally or internally.
The Colnago CX Zero Disc Ultegra bike gets you an endurance ride that punches above its weight.
