The aluminium was the material of choice after Marco Pantani won Giro d’Itali and Tour de France in 1998 on his aluminium Bianchi Mega Pro. In 1999 and 2000, the most important bike manufacturers Colnago, Pinarello, Bianchi, De Rosa and others were supplying their world top riders with different varieties of aluminium frames. Colnago’s top of the line aluminium frame was called Dream and it was made of welded Columbus Airplane aluminum tubing, with star shaped top and down tube, carbon precisa forks. It was light, stiff and comfortable. The Mapei Team riders had a choice of racing with aluminium Dream or carbon C40 bikes.
