About Colnago V2-R Direct Mount Frameset - VJBR
Frame is Direct Mount Rim Brake model.
Colnago V2-R Direct Mount Frameset.
+ 13% of Lateral Stiffness.
Monocoque in carbon fiber of the highest quality, for lightness and performance without compromise on any terrain.
Fork - Carbon Fiber Monocoque Frame. Crafted from monocoque carbon fibre, it has been designed to support the built-in brake body at the front. The double hole was devised to house the dual-pivot direct-mount system. This makes the brakes stiffer as well as more powerful and aerodynamic. The head-set bearing rests directly on the cone-shaped carbon-fibre head. The dropouts are made from aluminium.
Carbon Rear Dropouts - Resistant And Light. Made from monocoque carbon fibre, they have a replaceable derailleur. This design solution provides considerable advantages in terms of strength and weight. The cable port for the rear gears (either mechanical or electronic) is positioned to the right.
Seat Post - Aerodynamic and Comfort. Aerodynamics and integration has been taken to new heights on the seat post of the V2-r. A small diameter tube has been used to give extra comfort. The truncated profile of the seat post, like that of the seattube, guarantees an outstanding aerodynamic performance. The seat clamp integrated in the top tube makes for an even more pristine silhouette.
Brakes - Better Integration. The brakes are direct-mount which ensures ideal integration, both structural and aerodynamic, with the frame and fork. In terms of performance, this translates into a stiffer (therefore, more powerful) and lightweight system with a sleeker aesthetic.
Bottom Bracket - Ceramic Speed - Reliable, Practical and Safe. It is based on Colnago’s TF82.5 standard. It combines the reliability and practicality of a threaded (BSA) bottom bracket, the width and the exceptional rigidity of the PressFit standard. There is an aluminium threaded sleeve inside the bottom-bracket juncture which two lightweight alloy cups have been threaded into. Within these, the bearings are pressed; they can be removed, if required.

More About The Manufacturer Colnago
Colnago Ernesto & C. S.r.l. or Colnago is a manufacturer of high-end road-racing bicycles founded by Ernesto Colnago in 1954 near Milano in Cambiago, Italy. Instead of following his family's farming business, Ernesto Colnago chose to work in the cycle trade, apprenticing first with Gloria Bicycles at 13, subsequently taking up road racing. After a bad crash ended his racing career, he began subcontracting for Gloria, opened his own shop (1954) and built his first frames the same year. Much in demand as a racing mechanic, he was second mechanic on the Nivea team Giro d'Italia under Faliero Masi in 1955, eventually being employed as head mechanic for the Molteni team of Belgian cycling legend Eddy Merckx.
The company first became known for high quality steel framed bicycles, and later as one of the more creative cycling manufacturers responsible for innovations in design and experimentation with new and diverse materials including carbon fiber, now a mainstay of modern bicycle construction.
