Colnago claims that all of their frames use the same geometry. I have riden several and I have my doubts. But yesterday, I measured the bottom bracket height on my Ovalmaster and it was 272mm - not 265mm as advertised.

Do you really think all Colnago frames use the same geometry?
different tire widths!!!!! i'm a genius! nmcolker

Do you mean, have the same bottom bracket height?

One thing to keep in mind is that larger frames usually take longer length cranks. For this reason, it is common to have a higher bottom bracket on large sized frames.

And regarding bottom bracket height in general, a much better frame measurement to look at is bottom bracket drop. This measurement takes tire size out of the equation.
