N+1 Colnago Master Extra Light

I really, really lucked out today. I stumbled upon a Colnago Master Extra Light at a ridiculous price. So, it now sits in my sun porch waiting for the sun to return tomorrow.

It's got a 9 speed Dura Ace drive chain and brakes, Ultegra Hubs on Mavic Open Pros, a Thompson set-back seat post, A Reynolds Ouzo Pro fork, a TTT handlebar, Look Keo pedals, and Richey Pro stem. The only thing I've done to it is put on new white tape.

I'm jazzed and eager for tomorrow afternoon when I get home from work!

+1 Great find! I have a Master Lite myself, that I picked up two years ago at a really good price. Their paint jobs have incredible detail.

Everyone should have at least one Colnago in the stable.

Very nice bike and even better find. I'm really hating on you guys right now. All I ever see for sale around here are Free Spirits and Murray's. I constantly see guys at the LBS's buying high end bikes that I'm sure will not be ridden. They must be hiding them in attics to hand down to children I hope that you ride the wheels off the bike.

Sod waiting for tomorrow to test ride it---Can you say "Sickie"

A bike that good to look at has to prove itself so a day off as you have to take an older member of the family out for some re-habilitaion could be another excuse.

Congrats, you bought a Great bike...
I owned a SR equiped Colnago back in the 70's ... and while I have owned a lot of different bikes since then and it is one of only two I wish I still had (the other was a 86 Fat Chance).

XL Colnago Mater Extra Light

Since this head injury I've been in debt up to my eyebrows. I too have a Colnago with Campy stuff on it and a RaboBank paint job that I would like to sell. Anyone want to make me a decent offer? I'd sell it for $2250 and that's a small percentage of what it cost me.

The bike is in nearly perfect condition with Kyserium wheels on it. With my head all messed up like this I can't remember much about it but it's a C40 with a B-stay. It's entirely carbon fiber.

By the way - Since I bought it I think I've ridden it only a couple of times. I was always worried about scratching it.
