1998 Colnago Titanio, Mapei team paint

For @SJX426 @gaucho777, the Colnago. When I moved to France I wanted a road bike, so my last UK pay check went on this. It was sold by the shop I got it from to a 'collector', for at the time, the equivalent of nearly 4000. Must have best bike it doesn't get ridden often type. Looking at it I could believe it, it still had the original tape on the bars. Sadly no photos, but apparently less than 2000km ridden. The photos without the green highlights (next post) are from the week I bought it.

@MiloFrance - Thanks for the hit! I know of a person who has a TI Colnago with the dual DT configuration. He got it at a good price because one of the two DT's joints failed. He had it repaird, as any one would who appreciates the marque, and had it repainted. Looks stunning as does yours.

A lot of them have had that issue - especially the goofy twin dt model. I personally knew of three Colnago ti frames and none of them are around now, though none was the model above with the massive DT. I've never been clear on who made these, but think they were sourced from Eastern Europe. I do not think they were made in house. Maybe Sandvik.

Not sure of the design intent of this configuration. Could have been a design constraint of needing to use round tubes or the thinking was that twin tubes mimic an oval tube and would provide more lateral stifness at the BB. As usual, a Colnago deviation from the norm.

I think it's more about marketing than anything else.

What a crazy-@ss machine. On any other bike, I'd say "Dang, that's an UGLY saddle!" but somehow it fits right in, here.

Thank you all, it's always nice to get compliments even if it's not directly at me! The saddle was not as comfy as my old Ti railed MTB saddle from the 90s, so I swapped it. Keeps the embroidery sweet too
