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 1983-87, later in 1990 Master Più and in 1994 Master Olympic were released.
Proudly presenting another legendary steel racing machine from Cambiago – Colnago Master Piu, which dates back to 1992. A superb frameset is made of verl light and stiff Columbus Gilco S4 tubing, shinning in rare Decor paintjob. Built with Shimano Dura Ace 7400/7402 groupset, 3ttt Colnago cockpit, Ambrosio Durex clincher wheels. No much words needed.
