Colnago Mexico Classic Road Bicycle from the 1970s. Released in 1972 to celebrate the Eddy Merckx's world hour record set in Mexico City, the Colnago Mexico was basically a development of the older Colnago Super: same geometry but thinner Columbus SL tubes. Colnago manufactured two different versions of the Mexico before launching the Nuovo Mexico in 1982.
This Colnago Mexico dates back to the 1970s and is a first generation model, with rear brake cable's clamps on the top-tube and external routed shifting cables.
The Mexico has always been beloved for its frame geometry, as this model in impeccable condition shows. But what makes really the difference is the chroming which the Columbus SL tubes underwent: simply rarer, more captivating and more durable!
Being a late 1970s model, this Colnago Mexico has been equipped just with high-end part from the correct period, such as a Campagnolo Super Record derailleur first generation from 1977, Nisi tubular rims and a NOS suede Selle Italia Superleggera saddle.
Whether for to enrich a collection or to take part in cycling events, a Colnago Mexico which everybody has always dreamed!
