Thanks a lot for the nice words

I still kick myself for having sold that Colnago. It was barely out of size for me (only 1cm) so I should have kept it. Never saw another one like this since...

Thanks! I'm happy I don't get flammed for the modern components on it

This is actually a new frame, purchased last year. This one belongs to a very good friend.

Gary, I keep forgetting what model the tri-color Colnago is.

Is she a Master?

It will always rate as one of my favs here on the forums for its extremely handsome appearance.

Hi Gomango,

I know how much you love your Italians. And thanks, the tri-coloured Colnago is a Conic SLX. It's fitted with a 50th anniversary gruppo. I took it out for a ride just the other day - it's got a typical Colnago feel that you just know as soon as you hop on one - as you well know.

Very, very nice collection indeed. Nice to see such a deep Colnago representation!

Thank you Gary for the id.

I really don't think I've seen that model before with that paint scheme.

I wonder if it's a Euro only model?

So very, very nice.

Thanks guys.

My Colnago road bikes:



I miss them.

Especially for you Gomango:



I haven't seen a Colnago with this colour scheme. I bought the frame new about 1990 (the only new frame I have ever bought). It sat in the local bike shop for about a year until, one day, the bike shop owner made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I had admired the 'Italian' colour scheme for all that time - I really wanted that frame. I have since built it up with a 50th anniversary gruppo as well as a Campy pneumatic saddle and Campy biddon as well as my favourite ITM bars and stem.

HOW ON EARTH IS POSSIBLE, to have old bikes like these in such a mint condition???

And my mighty Legnano


This photograph was taken when this poor italian stallion was my main transportation, and I was a reckless youngster. Now it's in better condition

Q. How is it possible? A. Avoid reckless youngsters! Wonderful Legnano by the way. I always wanted a beautiful Legnano with that stunning colour and yours looks to be in pretty good condition as you state.

Thank you Gary.

I'm sure you really enjoy the remaining bicycles in your stable, as I know I love gawking at all of those pretty bicycles.

The Conic SLX is on a special level though in my mind.

That is everything a very special Italian racing bike ought to be.

So compelling in all ways and I 'm sure she's a hoot to ride.

Wow!

2000 Pinarello Paris

Wow, some seriously amazing Italian rides here. Blue Ciocc and the incredible Bottecchia have my vote.

Anyhow, this may be my first time posting my Italian... I always thought perhaps was a bit too new for this crowd being a 2000 and all but I'll post it just this once.
