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. His first big success as a frame builder dates back in 1960 when Luigi Arienti won gold medal at the Rome Olympic games. 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. Colnago has always been one of the most innovative manufactures of all time.
To celebrate his 50th anniversary of building great bicycles, Ernesto Colnago created a limited edition model in carbon fibre, built with Shimano ‘Colnago 50th Anniversary’ groupset. A frame that mates a front monocoque carbon triangle to Colnago’s carbon fibre rear triangle with B-Stay, and a more rounded version of Colnago’s High Power chainstays. Colnago’s exclusive design was built in Italian carbon manufacturer ATR’s high-tech factory and was available in eight sizes, including four with sloping top tubes. Ernesto Colnago’s Anniversary was produced in a limited numbers.
Happy to present this oustanding milestone from Cambiago – COLNAGO President – Leonardo Da Vinci bike which dates back to 2004. The amazing shapes of the frame makes you understand, that Ernesto was always ahead of the time. Build with Shimano Dura Ace 7800 Colnago 50th Ann groupset, Cinelli RAM Colnago cockpit. No much words needed. Love at first sight.
