This bicycle may not have a steel frame, but that doesn't mean there is a lack of craftsmanship or appeal.
The Carbitubo was a revolutionary machine during the 1980s; Ernesto Colnago was looking for ways to push the boundaries of performance cycling and thus decided to use different materials and frame geometries in his search for perfection. He started to cooperate with car manufacturer Ferrari, and the result was this bicycle.
The frame is made of carbon fibre tubes inserted into aluminium lugs including a unique double-down tube, making the bike very stiff.The carbon techniques were a byproduct of the development that went into the CarbonVolo monocoque.
The whole frame is stunningly manufactured, illustrating the history of the brand and the finely crafted bicycles that were released during Colnago's 80s years. Tony Rominger claims the Carbitubo to be his favourite frame of all time and is known to have half a dozen of these incredible pieces of engineering in his garage.
