This bicycle has no steel frame but that doesn't mean there is a lack of interesting background stories and appeal.
Here we present one of Colnago's great Carbon fiber machines from the late 1980s and early 1990s. At this time, Ernesto Colnago was looking for ways to push the boundaries of performance cycling and thus decided to use different materials and frame geometries. He started to cooperate with Ferrari and Alan and came out with bikes like this.
The frame is made of carbon fiber tubes inserted into aluminium lugs and, beside that, shows a nice geometry with a straight precisa fork.In many ways it reminds of Alan's Carbonio model and Colnago's Carbitubo. The carbon techniques were a byproduct of the developement of the CarbonVolo monocoque and the C35
The whole frame is stunningly and precisely manufactured.
This seems to be a step from the double downtube Carbitubo towards the later C40 models.
A great bike in pristine condition. Good for many miles to come and certainly an excellent ride.
