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 1994 Colnago started to produce their very successful model C40 — ‘C’ for carbon and ‘40’ to commemorate Colnago’s 40th year in business. Full carbon frame with Master profile carbon tubes bonded to carbon lugs. Colnago solved the problem of how to make a carbon frame durable enough to win the toughest cobbled Classics yet light enough to soar up Alpine cols. That’s the reason why the C40 is the favourite bike of all time for so many people — including Sir Bradley Wiggins. Colnago could have created something with perhaps a swoopy, futuristic profile befitting its revolutionary design. Instead he kept the tubes ramrod-straight in the traditional style — albeit with the star-shaped cross-section that he had pioneered with the steel Master.
The Colnago C40 won 5 out of 6 editions of Paris-Roubaix in years (1995-2000) and several world champion titles in years 1996-2002. Jacky Durand was a French start of cycling in mid 1990s. He was member of Team Casino in years ’97 and ’98 and rode the Tour de France 1998 on identical bike to the one, we are presenting here.
Here we are proudly presenting another legenedary racing machine of the mid 1990s – COLNAGO C40 Team Casino, which dates back to 1997-98. Full carbon frameset is shinning in beautiful Casino paintjob and equipped with Shimano Dura ace 7700 groupset, outstanding Spinergy wheels, ITM cockpit, original Hoskar Casino saddle. One of the last real bikes. No much words needed.
The legend! For all Colnago fans.
