Colnago Mexico Classic Road Bike 1980s
- Manufacturer: Colnago
- Size: 55 cm
Mexico, name of a Country and a city in unison, became associated with great sportive achievements around 1970
There were, of course, the Olympic games of 1968 which saw many old Records pulverised and tumble. At the end of the same year, Ole Ritter set a new world hour Record in Mexico. The partly responsible thin air at this altitude was also one of the reasons for which cycling prodigy Eddy Merckx had his attempt at the hour there, in 1972.
Manufactured to celebrate his record, the Colnago Mexico is one of the most iconic bikes that left Ernesto's legendary factory in Cavenago (Milan, Italy).
The Colnago Mexico was slightly different from the Colnago Super - built with a slightly different, lighter Columbus tubing and un-crimped chain stays - but it shared the aggressive racing geometry: short, agile and pretty stiff.
This Colnago Mexico frame from the 1980s has a shiny refurbished paintjob which is a nod to the classic 'Saronni' red.
What else could make a frame like this more perfect? A top class groupset, of course. In our case it is the classic Campagnolo Super Record. A groupset which was the epitome of professional bike componentry.
On top there are some sweet extras like the pantographs on the crank, stem, hubs and a Colnago bottle cage with bidon.
When one of the coolest Colnago bikes meets a nice Campagnolo groupset, then it is a perfect match.
Take this bike wherever you like. A machine that won't disappoint you.
