Colnago flash forks...(6 posts)

Colnago flash forks...DINOSAUR
Mar 14, 2002 12:43 PM
I was reading an old copy of VeloNews this morning and saw an article regarding carbons forks. The great majority are made in China or Tawain. So who makes the forks for Colnago?
Just curious....never thought I'd see the day when Nago's were equipped with Janpanese components, so this question is not that far out of reach...not that it matters but I just wondered...

The box mine came in says made in Italy. However, I have some doubts about the new carbon crank they just put out. It is an eyesore by the way.

they seem well built. The Flash is nice and stiff how I like it. Similar in stiffness to a Woundup.

My understanding is that all the Colnago forks are made in Italy.

I've got a Flash fork on the CT1 and like the way the bike rides. Very smooth and very reassuring on the steep twisties. It's a little heavy but overall it's no big deal. The bike is still under 17#

YMMV

I was in your LBS the other day and saw an MXL Colnago with the stars and stripes paint. Is that yours? Nice looking frame and it would stand out. :)

Hmmmm can't seem to reply to a direct post. I ordered a LX23 Robobank MLX. I saw the stars and stripes frame being carried into the store when I was ordering my bike. The only 59cm their supplier had in stock was in black or LX23.

My frame is due today, then they have to build it up. I don't have my fingers crossed, the weather is so unstable anyway I probably couldn't ride it.

I asked about the fork as I was wondering if I could keep my bike clear of any Japanese parts. Probably a lane idea, I was cleaning up my Klein after getting drenched in rain the other day, and that Ultegra group is good stuff. After over 16K, the STI's are getting pretty sloppy though.
