There hasn't been many postings of Colnago's plans for 2007. Those visiting Milano, Italy wouldn't be able to find much in the way of new bikes, aside from the tweaked Extreme C bike, the Extreme Power. Turns out, we were looking in the wrong place. Try Taiwan. Yes, the Italian bicycle manufacurer has decided to outsource their building of a new line of affordable carbon fiber bikes, designed in-house, the CLX line. From the horses mouth:

"My new CLX is a high performance yet affordable carbon fiber bicycle. We have designed the CLX here in Cambiago in our ColnagoLab, then brought the manufacturing to Taiwan to bring the price down to a more affordable level. For years, our customers have been asking us for a more affordable carbon fiber bicycle but we didn't want to make anything cheap and unreliable. We have done a lot of testing and now we know the CLX deserves the name Colnago."

This is a first for the pure Italian company. Affordable, sure. But would you really buy a Colnago made in Taiwan?
