Description

When Ernesto released the Colnago C40 he started a revolution.

Before carbon fibre 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 fibre 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 fibre lugs .

And it became available in an unbelievable amount of paint schemes. All paint jobs 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 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 comes with an original Art decor paint job. It is equipped with a Campagnolo Chorus groupset, which suits the racing orientation of this bike rather well. A nice touch is a top-class wheelset with Mavic Reflex rims.


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

SVB quality and attention to detail is second to none! Fantastic customer service, very accommodating and helpful.

Lovely products and very helpful staff. 5*

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.

Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!

Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.

The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.
