Few bicycles have influenced the scene as much as the Colnago Super. At a time when racing bicycles were heavy with long wheelbases, Ernesto Colnago released a bicycle which would become a legend of cycling history and the top model of his 1970s catalogue - the Super.
Made of Columbus SL steel tubes - with a shorter, stiffer and lighter frame - the Colnago Super was designed for high-performance. Since its launch, most racing bicycles have been built with a geometry inspired by the Super.
This Colnago Super is one of the early ones and dates back to 1972, possibly 1971. There are not many early Supers still out there and this exemplar is very fine. Back in the days, Colnago issued the special Eddy Merckx edition and as a reminiscence our Super is refurbished in team Molteni colours.
It's equipped with best components of the time - Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset with drilled chainring and milled seatpost. Very fine components are to be found all aver the bike. From Cinelli cockpit, Colnago leather saddle or the Super Champion Competition rims.
The frame is then refurbished in Eddy Merckx Molteni team colors, a reminiscence of the special edition of Eddy Meckx edition Colnago made back in the days.
This Colnago Super is a great choice for vintage bike fans. Suitable for classic cycling events.
