    Hi vjp - yes it has been quite a while - 2 years as you point out. Still your interest remains strong. Recovery must be long and drawn out but it is nice to read that you are looking forward to...

    Same size!!! I know I couldn't resist taking it for a spin. I do like the Triomphe groupset and those callipers came out with the post 1983 Super Record groupset - classic Campagnolo. I love your...

    Sorry for yet another response but you asked about frame options. I have a friend with a very well established bike shop here in Australia. He used to travel to the Colnago factory in Italy and deal...

    Just a little footnote: I've found with Colnago's is that you think you are on to a trend or rule regarding dating or models only to discover something a little different to make you re-think your...

    Personally, I don't think it's a Mexico as the Mexico's were from a previous era but were very similar. There was a Esa Mexico from that era though but it was quite different. I think you have seen...

    It's pretty hard to identify Colnago's as you are aware but I would suggest that your frame is a Super Piu (Piu being internal rear brake cable routing in the top tube). As for a date - I think it...

    Thankyou and...yes...a second tractor would be an obvious choice to keep your trend going. I've never owned a tractor but I have a soft spot for the little Fergies. They seemed to be on most farms in...

    Hi RonFranks, I can't argue with your logic, there are many new components finding their way onto classic frames - the saddle you like is fine especially with the components you are using. They will...

    I've had a Campagnolo seatpost snap off when I have been doing 50ph+ not a nice experience. You can go off the back of the bike or impale yourself on the stub of the post - ouch! My post was on the...

    Yes it would - hope it doesn't happen.

    Thanks Marty. I've been to the CR archives but I have never spent any time there. I always imagined that the Colnago research happened that way but it's good...

    Hi Confente, Yes, you're exactly right - read the fine print - haha. This must be one of life's golden rules.

    I would be interested, however, in finding out how the Colnago Super timeline was...

    Hi iab, I'd be interested in the owner's reason for claiming his frame is a 1970 build. Was he the original owner or have first hand knowledge of the original owner?
