In 1952 he founded Colnago and started to work as mechanic for several professional teams.

The Colnago Tecnos bicycle frame first appeared in their 1996 catalogue and was still in production until the early 2000’s. This frame featured a new tube profile design and was manufactured from Nivacrom steel based on Colnago’s exclusive specification with five-leaf-clover shaping.

- Top tube: biconical diameter of 25.4mm at either end, 28.6mm diameter in the centre.
