Description

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 response to criticism that Colnago frames were not stiff enough, Ernesto experimented with various crimped-tube frames. In 1983 he introduced their top model ”Master” and the legend was born. The Master was constructed with famous ”star shaped’ top, seat and down tube profile tubing called Columbus Gilco S4 designed by Gilberto Colombo to improve performance. The first version of the Colnago Master was produced in years 1984-87, later Master Più and Master Olympic were released.

Proudly presenting another legendary steel racing machine from Cambiago – Colnago Master, which dates back to 1985. The frame is made of superb Columbus Gilco S4 tubing, shinning in outstanding Oro Retinato paintjob. Extraordinary frame such as this one deserves the best build and with no surprise it’s built with Campagnolo Super Record groupset (no fluted cranks, no Pat on rear derailleur)  with Colnago pantograph seatpost. Other special parts spotted on the bike are 3ttt Colnago cockpit, Campagnolo Victory Strada wheels, San Marco Concor saddle with golden rails. A real eye-catcher, perfect in every detail!

For all Colnago enthusiasts. L’Eroica ready.
