    Anyone ever heard of a Colnago "Sport"?

    I tried this thread in "Classic" without any success, so I thought you guys might be better able to help me.....does anyone have info on an old 1980s/1990s Colnago model called "Colnago Sport"? Here are some pics....looks/feels like it might have been a tourer, it is very light, says "Made in Italy" on it and it had a weirdly named groupo---Giembi, or something like that. The rear-derailer had Giembi (or whatever) with the Italian colours on it, if that is any help. Thanks for any input.

    my guess, just from the era, probably 27"
    Marla, the little scratch on the roof of your mouth that would heal, if only you could just stop tounging it, but you can't

    Strange,
    I was bidding a bike with the same "Colnago Sport" decals, also red and also vey light. When I have challenged the seller since the bike had very tight frame (as yours), very unlike relaxed "sport" geometry he said that the decals didn't come with the frame.
    This is the third bike in the attachment:

    So, it makes two of them :-)
