Zing! What a beaut… and a perfect winter hacker too!
Seen at Speedbicycles.
Damn, son. That’s some collection you have there…. I’d say you need to cool off and think about letting some of your hotness go!
Now, folks that know me will know that I am no stranger to building vintage bikes, in fact I can’t think of anything I enjoy more, however when my pal Len said he had a project for me to undertake I had no idea what was in store.
Knowing my love for and knowledge of the vintage bicycle he has asked me to build this, his recently acquired ebay purchase of a Colnago Master Crono.
He wanted me to build him a ‘fixie’ out of it. I, of course, said no, no way. The only way I would get involved was if he would agree to me building it up the way it was intended… A super fast geared time trial machine. So, after much banter and a phone call to the bank manager he said “OK”.
I have no idea how much it will cost ( not that it’s my hard earned that I’ll be spending ) or how long it will take, I am just happy he asked me because now I can’t wait to get started, but wait… Dude, where are the god damned forks?
Anyway, hold tight the disc wheel and full super record. Happy days.
Right, that’s it. The Olmo is going to Black, or maybe Charcoal. This Colnago looks hot as hell! None drive side photo fail, though guys.
Tucked away, deep into the busiest corner of my dining room is my ‘workshop’ where you will find me a lot of the time beavering away with grease and bearings and all of the other filthy stuff that goes with cycle maintenance.
Here is a photograph of said ‘workshop’ in all of it’s glory but there is one thing missing… A god damned workstand. If I have to lean over a top tube to extract cranks one more time I am going to lose my mind, I will probably also lose the straightness in my back while I am at it too!
Is your workshop weaker than mine? I’d like to see it. Send me your pics.
If you couldn’t tell from these drawings then you should know that Gilberto Colombo played a significant part in some of the most advancing bike frame designs in history.
This is the Colnago Carbon Volo from 1988. Yes 1988. Amazing technology for the time me thinks.
This is very, very nice. Cicli Berlinetta doing it right, again.
The latest made in Italy masterpiece from Colnago, the new EPS Di2 advances the state of the art in road racing bicycles.
We have improved our lugged carbon fiber frame to incorporate ports for the cabling of Shimano’s advanced Dura-Ace Di2 electronic gear shifting while maintaining the stellar EPS ride and handling.
The EPS Di2 shares the essential qualities of the EPS: light weight, toughness and durability. With Dura-Ace Di2 electronic gears, EPS Di2 offers shifting performance to match the EPS frame’s smooth, powerful ride.
With 22 sizes on offer, plus the option of custom construction for riders with specific requirements, you can be sure the EPS Di2 will fit perfectly.
God knows how much this is, actually I don’t think I want to know.
Oh my god this Colnago is ridonkulous!
I am now totally warming to the idea of a TT bike for my collection ( after a chat with the wife of course ) and moreover I am warming to the idea of bull bars for my pursuit bike. Riser bars in my opinion ( comfortable as they are ) are beginning to look a tad out of place.
Colnago killing me again!
I know summer has gone but you could create your own rays simply by mounting this whip. Around my neighbourhood we like to call this “Blingerz” and yes, always with a Z.
I will post the source next week, right after I post more photographs. Maybe it will be the luscious Bottecchia Equipe or maybe even the magnificent Ciocc San Cristobal! We will see.
I have posted a photograph of this bicycle before but upon finding a few more detailed pics I could not resist the posting of it again.
This 1979 Colnago Pista is perfection in Steel. End of.
We’ve got 2 new complete bikes on offer here at Tour de Ville.
A very nice Gazelle from the early eighties with a full Shimano Dura Ace group set and a Colnago Team Wordperfect replica with a Suntour groupset. The Colnago was ridden by the Dutch Wordperfect team from the early nineties. They only sponsered the team for 1 year and after that the sponsering was taken over by Rabobank.
Gazelle: £ 895,-
Colnago: £ 795,-
I am an absolute sucker for a downtube mounted friction shifter!
