Just curious, are there embossed logo's other than the decals? Is the cable routing internal? Are the dropout Colnago? Is there a chain stay bridge? What does the seat stay bridge look like? etc.?

You need more pictures, BB,fork shoulder, seat cluster, and drop out. Serial#'s are helpful, almost forgot seat stay bridge has a clover on top where the brake bolts on.

Given the seat cluster arrangement, my bet would be early 90's. Probably a Super.

Its an unusual colour combination - I wonder if it was an old 'team' frame although it doesn't have a race number boss brazed under the top tube.

Looks a lot like the one that I had suck picked up (and subsequently sold due to burer's remorse). Mine said Super '91 on the columbus sticker too.

I found some info by searching "Columbus Super", but was never sure that this was a model. My seatpost was not 27.2; it was either 26.8 or 27.0.
