Colnago Super Classic Road Bike 1975
- Manufacturer: Colnago
- Size: 55 cm
Few bicycles have influenced the cycling scene as much as the Colnago Super. At a time when racing bicycles were averagely heavy, with long wheelbases and flat angles, Ernesto Colnago released a frameset which would become a legend of cycling history and one of the top models of his 1970s and 1980s catalogues – the Super.
Made of Columbus SL steel tubes, with a shorter, stiffer and lighter frame, the frame was designed for high-performance. Since the launch, uncountable racing bicycles have been built with a geometry inspired by the Super.
This particular Colnago Super dates back to the 1970s and has seen a repaint in recent years in a a dark yet vibrant magenta. The bike underwent a complete service: all parts have been checked and adjusted to make sure it works as fine as it did back in the day.
Regarding the components, this Colnago Super is fully fitted with premium parts: a pantographed Campagnolo Nuovo Record Gruppo, Nisi rims, 3ttt bars and stem and a San Marco saddle
Approved for Eroica events worldwide.
- Condition: Used. The bike is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork has been refurbished at some point and thus has only few minor scratches. All parts have been thoroughly checked and are working fine.
