It is not easy to find a road bike that has influenced the Italian cycling industry as much as the Colnago Super. At a time when racing bicycles were comparably heavy, with long wheelbases and flat angles, Ernesto Colnago released a bicycle which would become a legend of cycling history and the top model of his successful 1970s production - the Super.

Made of Columbus SL steel tubes - with a shorter, stiffer and lighter frame - the 1st generation Colnago Super Roma was designed for high-performance. Since its launch, numerous racing bicycles have been built with a geometry inspired by the Super.

Our Colnago Super Roma dates back to 1968 and is de facto one of the first Colnago bikes which were called a Super. Before this bikes there were the chunkier 'Freccia' models and the more slender 'Roma' bikes. Then, in 1968, the Super was introduced, equipped with the then new Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset and Universal brakes, and instantly made history. The specific style in which our bike was made has only been used for a span of not even two years between 1968 and 1970. Then, in 1970, small changes were introduced to the Super.

As for the frameset, it was repainted and refinished in a warm white shade with appropriate decals and details.
As for the components, the superb 1st generation Campagnolo Nuovo Record parts have been fully serviced in our workshop in Berlin. Especially the rare rear derailleur is a real treat. Campagnolo did not market their own brakes before 1969 therefore it is equipped originally with Universal Mod. Super 68 brakes and brake levers.

Generally, this Colnago Super Roma is really in nice condition and great in the details. A rare 1960s build.

The right choice for all Colnago collectors and of course suitable for Eroica events!
