Mexico, name of a Country and a city in unison, became associated with great sportive achievements around 1970.
There were, of course, the Olympic games of 1968 which saw many old Records pulverised and tumble. At the end of the same year, Ole Ritter set a new world hour Record in Mexico. The partly responsible thin air at this altitude was also one of the reasons for which cycling prodigy Eddy Merckx had his attempt at the hour there, in 1972.

When he smashed Ole Ritter's time on a special bicycle, Ernesto Colnago immediately thought about utilizing the event by establishing a new top-of-the-line road bike. Manufactured to celebrate the record, the Colnago Mexico is one of the most iconic bikes that left Ernesto's legendary factory in Cavenago (Milan, Italy).
The Colnago Mexico was slightly different from the Colnago Super - built with a slightly different, lighter Columbus tubing and un-crimped chain stays - but it shared the aggressive racing geometry: short, agile and pretty stiff.

This Colnago Mexico frame stems from the year 1980 and represents the later bikes built before 1983, when Nuovo Mexico took over. Interestingly it comes in the fully chromed version which is quite rare and almost impossible to find on the classic Mexico after 1979.

Which components to choose for a Colnago top model? A top level Campagnolo groupset, of course! It is equipped with Campagnolo Super Record gruppo with a special cherry on top - Colnago pantographed parts

A fine and rare bike for a collection and for a ride.
