A modern masterpiece handmade in an Italian home

Nearly all 200 bicycles from the 2015 Tour de France were made in megafactories with few exceptions: most notably Colnago’s latest, the carbon-framed C60. In 1952, Ernesto Colnago began turning out bikes in the Milanese suburb of Cambiago, and the 84-year-old still oversees all production today. Even though they’re made in Ernesto’s at-home studio, his creations have won nearly every race there is to win. Not a pro cyclist? Not a problem. He offers multiple fits of the C60 so that even casual riders can cruise comfortably. For an extra-stylish upgrade, opt for the Tricolore edition, shown here, one of 100 with a sexy coat of gold paint.—Colnago C60 Tricolore, $14,500,
