Posted it elsewhere, but I always enjoy another chance to post it. I got this one off Craigs List a couple of months ago. This is my Master Lite, not sure of the year, components are 2003. Handlebars, stem and pedals came off my 1988 Schwinn Tempo.

I posted this in the under $800 thread, new vs used.

Really, really nice ride wrk101. It will be perfect when you get matching bottle cages. You should slap yourself silly over that.

Looking for a frame

I'm looking for a steel master 57 frame. Or maybe a complete bike. Any ideas?

My '82 Colnago Super. I ride it as much as my Cannondale CAAD9; even more during the winter since the wind trainer's set up for it.

VERY NICE! But of course I am very biased about these things. BUT I did happen to come across this interesting post a while back...

“At the LBS the other week, a Tommasini came in on special order. I missed seeing a Techno that the customer picked up by only a couple of hours. However, according to the LBS owner who is a devout Colnago fan and owner (C50) he said that he would own the Techno over the Master X-Lite hands down due to the extra attention regarding the paint job quality (depth, feel and look) and detail. He said "there is no comparison between the two frames". Damn...I wish I could have seen that Techno!” - posted on 09-04-07, 04:10 PM by jberenyi


If anyone wants a great deal on a Tecno - let me know...

Congrats for deciding on Molteni MXL!
I'd be very interested in how different(or similar) your setup turns out compared to mine.

I have a 80's Master that I'm building and can't determine what group to put on it.

mid 80's campy c-record, newer brakes. Campy wheelset, 12 speed.

2007 Campy Centaur- (pre Carbon fiber centaur). Campy Scirocco wheelset

2008 Record. Same wheelset-

It's between the older group and the Centaur, as I don't think I need to worry about the grams saved by putting the record group on it. But it would look pretty cool. I'm only going to be riding the bike on light rides with my wife, and coffee sundays.

Go with the 2008 Campy and bet you ride it a lot more.

Why did I not see this earlier?

The Paramount is lovely, the Colnago is even better. The Colnago and the Atala--hard to say which is the nicer ride. They both ride like a dream...seriously.

If any other bike comes close, I would be in Bike Heaven.

Glad you qualified that stem length as I was about to say that it marred the appearance of one of the best Colnago's that I have seen. The colour and co-ordination just seems to be right.


So Another point to You Colnago owners-

What do they ride like???

Pretty pictures- and they do look good--Mean not a lot to me. I do know how Steel rides- some good and some bad- so what makes this Steel framed bike so Good?
