Description

When Ernesto released the Colnago C40 he started a revolution.
Before, carbon fiber has been seen as the future of cycling and there have been loads of experiments going on since the 1970s. But to that point no carbon fiber bike proved so safe and light at the same time, that it was suitable as a standard professional team bike. Well constructed enough to equally compete in the mountains and the classics of Flanders.

1994, to celebrate the company's 40th birthday, the C40 was first presented to the public. A construction of profiled carbon fiber tubes, fitted together by well proportioned carbon fiber lugs and steered with a high tech steel fork.
And it became available in an unbelievable amount of paint schemes. All paintjobs were carried out by hand and found the company some extra fame.

However, the frame had yet to prove that it was capable of being a threat to the aluminium and steel bikes in the hard races which pro teams have to attend.
Ernesto outfitted the Team Mapei as the first squad to race his prestigious machine. They proved that the bike was capable of coping with the roughest conditions. And the manner in which they did, was simply stunning. There is no bike with more victories in the cobble spring classics. Riders like Museeuw, Tafi and Ballerini made this frame a legend.

This Colnago C40 is the first version and it comes with an original Art decor paintjob. It is equipped with Campagnolo Record groupset, which suits the racing orientation of this bike rather well. Nice touch is the top class wheelset with Ambrosio Servizio Corse rims.

An iconic 90s road bike with true racing pedigree. Completely checked by our mechanics in Berlin, it is ready to ride.
