Ernesto Colnago was born on February 9, 1932 in Cambiago, near Milan, Italy. At age 13 he entered in world of two wheels and immediately he fall in love with bikes and cycling. In 1952 he founded Colnago and started to work as mechanic for several professional teams. Colnago’s bikes still have a domination of the world’s cycling sports because Ernesto was always an innovator and pioneer of new technologies which supposedly provide more efficency or comfort.
In years between 1960s to 1980s Colnago was producing high-end steel bikes, later in early 1990s they began to produce bike frames made of titanium. Titanium frame is lighter than steel and has an enviably smooth ride quality, but on the other side, it’s very expensive. In 1993, Colnago released the ”Bititan”, a unique completely titanium frame with iconic dual titanium down tube. A titanium bike has a reputation as being a ”bike for life” and, whether or not that’s true, even nowadays in a world dominated by carbon fibre, titanium remains an excellent metal from which to make a frame.
Tony Rominger (born 27 March 1961 in Vejle, Denmark) is a Swiss former professional road racing cyclist who won the Vuelta a España in 1992, 1993 and 1994 and the Giro d’Italia in 1995. In 1994 Rominger broke the world hour record twice in a few days. He used Bordeaux velodrome to ride 53.832 km and then 55.291 km, although a track novice. In 1995 he was ridding for Team Mapei and won the Giro d’Itala on COLNAGO Bititan bike.
