This here is no steel frame but that doesn't mean there is a lack of interesting background stories and appeal.
Here we present a true revolutionary machine. In the second half of the 1980s, Ernesto Colnago was looking for ways to push the boundaries of professional road bikes and thus decided to use different materials and frame geometries. He started to cooperate with Ferrari and came out with this bike.
The frame is made of carbon fiber tubes inserted into aluminium lugs and, beside that, shows a unique geometry with a double down tube which makes the bike very stiff.
The geometry was inspired by the 1986 developed aluminium model Duall. The carbon techniques were a byproduct of the developement of the CarbonVolo monocoque
Nobody less than Giuseppe Saronni helped Colnago with the design, making it his very own advancement. The whole frame is stunningly and precisely manufactured. The trust of many great riders of its age, such as Moreno Argentin and Bjarne Riis, Olaf Ludwig and many other professionals speaks for itself. Tony Rominger even claims it to be his all time favourite frame and is said to have half a dozen of them in his garage!
This exemplar here stems from around 1992 and got a refurbished paintjob.
