Manufactured to celebrate 1972 Eddy Merckx world hour record, the Colnago Mexico is one of the most iconic bikes which left the legendary factory in Cavenago (Milan, Italy). The Colnago Mexico was slightly different from the Colnago Super - built with a slightly different, lighter Columbus KL tubing and un-crimped chain stays - but it shared the aggressive racing geometry: short, agile and pretty stiff.
This Colnago Mexico frame from 1979 shows a typical 'Saronni red' paintwork which, has been professionally refurbished by a Colnago painter.
What else could make a frame like this more perfect? A unique groupset, of course. In our case it is the typical top class Campagnolo Super Record one. A groupset which was the preferred choice of professional cyclists over the span of more than one decade.
When one of the coolest Colnago bikes meets one of the most desirable Campagnolo groupsets, then it is a perfect match.
We thoroughly checked the Mexico, lubed all the bearings and made sure it is ready to be ridden. Take it where ever you like. A bike that won't disappoint you.
