COLNAGO Carbitubo Ariostea Team, Shimano Dura Ace 7402, 59.5cm (1992) – SOLD

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 late 1980s, Ernesto Colnago was looking for ways to push the boundaries of bike performance  dand ecided to use different materials and frame geometries. He started to cooperate with Ferrari and came out with the Carbitubo, which immediately succeeded. The entire frameset is very precisely manufactured and made of carbon fiber tubes inserted into aluminium lugs and, beside that, shows a unique geometry with a double-tube down tube which makes the bike very stiff.

Ariostea cyling team was one of the strongest teams back in 1991-92, directed by G.Ferretti. For 2 seasons their best riders were winning on exactly the same Colnago Carbitubo framesets with the same Shimano Dura Ace groupset. They had many starts on board like: B.RiisM.Argentin, R.Sorensen, G.Furlan, D.Cassani, A.Ferrigato
