Sizes

Every bike has a different geometry and each brand has its own convention for sizing their bikes. Some publish the length of the seat tube (this can be either Centre to Centre or Centre to Top) as the bike 'size'. Others use the length of the top tube to determine bike size. 

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, but it is accurate in the majority of cases. 

Livelo has additional long and short stems and seat posts to help ensure we can fit you correctly on a Livelo Bike. So if you are unsure, please contact us for assistance.

 Geometry

 

Spec's

Building on Colnago's experience V1-r race bike (produced in collaboration with Ferrari), the CLX features oblique, oversized tube shapes that embrace an oversized bottom bracket area (featuring the new Colnago ThreadFit82.5 system) and a conical seat tube for use with a new lighter and more comfortable 27.2mm diameter seat post.


Something that makes the CLX appeal to a wider audience is the fork. A carbon fibre monocoque design with straight blades, the conical crown-race, made of carbon fibre, allows you to mount spacers up to a maximum of 28mm stack-height. This aids in obtaining more positions for a greater number of riders. Durability and safety are enhanced thanks to the fork’s aluminium dropouts.

FEATURES

FORK

The CLX fork is a carbon fiber monocoque design with straight blades. The base measures 1-1/4”, while the top is 1-1/8”.

BRAKES

The braking system on the new ClX is a traditional, center-mount type – centrally mounted on the front of the fork.

SEATPOST

The CLX  seatpost is made of carbon fiber with a light alloy head. The diameter measures 27.2mm – smaller and lighter than an oversized 31.6mm.

BOTTOM BRACKET

The Colnago ThreadFit82.5 bottom bracket system, the same used for the C60 and V1-r, is what you’ll find on the new CLX.

DROPOUTS

A high-value option – the new CLX dropouts are a carbon fiber monocoque design, with a replaceable (internal) derailleur hanger.

HOW DO I SET MY BIKE UP WITH THE CORRECT SEAT HEIGHT ETC?

Livelo likes to ensure your bike is correctly fitted for your ride - seat height correct, bar reach correct, bar drop correct. This ensures you are comfortable and efficient on the bike. 

This can be arranged by forwarding us your bike-fit report, or alternatively you can take the relevant measurements from you own bike. See our simple guide here

If you are not in a position to do either of the options above, we can supply the bike with a multi-tool for you to adjust your seat height. We can also arrange to meet you when you collect the bike for a quick adjustment. 

HOW DO THE DELIVERIES WORK?

CBD DELIVERY

Livelo provides free bike delivery to the CBD zones. 

Generally, deliveries occur the evening prior to your rental day. 

Most of our deliveries are to clients at hotels. If you are not in attendance at the time of delivery the bike is delivered to the concierge/bell staff who 'check' the bike for you and issue Livelo with a luggage claim. Livelo will email or text you confirmation of the delivery and details of the claim.

When you are finished with your bike simply return it to the concierge desk, tell the staff Livelo will collect it and forward Livelo the details of the claim check. 

NON CBD DELIVERY

Livelo can deliver your bike to your location outside of the CBD area. We have a modest fee which is commensurate with the cost of travelling to the CBD to collect your bike. Visit this page for more information.

EXPRESS DELIVERY

Express Delivery is available for an additional $40. If you need your bike delivered within 24hours of placing your order, just select the express delivery option at checkout. 

Airbnb DELIVERIES

We can deliver to your Airbnb property. We need some spefic information from you to ensure this happens smoothly.

COLLECTING YOUR BIKE FROM LIVELO

While Livelo is set up as the ultimate bike concierge delivery service, it is some times more convenient for clients to collect their bikes from us. We can arrange this from either our base locations in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.

Contact Livelo re our Perth and Adelaide collection options.

Please contact us to finalise your bike collection arrangements. 

WHAT PEDALS DO YOU SUPPLY, OR DO I HAVE TO BRING MY OWN PEDALS?

Livelo can install all major pedals on your bike. This keeps things nice and easy for you – pack you shoes – grab your bike - clip in – ride.
