I acquired this (96) Colnago Master Olympic as a frame / headset / fork w/seatpost and saddle. She has Columbus Gilco steel tubing. My Volvo technician sold me the Rolf Aero wheelset and I picked up some DuraAce and (don't tell) Microshift components. I cannot give a ride report yet but hope to take her out soon.

Sweet looking ride. Same paint scheme as my Master XL. Should be a pretty refined ride.

I will be especially interested in hearing how you like the wheels. I hope you enjoy the new ride.

I thought this bike could use some higher end wheels. I can say they are very light and true. The freehub clicking is very solid (loud). The previous owner only put a couple hundred miles on them. I paid way more than my usual "used" wheels but less than a third of new street price. The GP 4000 tires list price is about 40% of what I paid - so I got a good deal.
