Description

Before computer modelling bicycles and wind tunnel tests in an excellently engineered lab, the concept of aerodynamics in cycling mainly consisted of getting in the drops and turning your cap backwards. Riders relied on the feel of the breeze and their marginal gain was shaving their legs.

Colnago however knew bicycle design was about to change forever when they partnered with Columbus to utilize a radical new tubing that became known as Oval CX.

Due to its labour-intensive nature, and the need to develop precision machinery to accommodate not only the tubes but also the lugs to join them, bikes built utilising these oval tubes were exceedingly rare in the early 1980s. In fact, Columbus gave only one master frame builder, Vanni Pettenella, the chance to build these bikes for Colnago spanning from 1983 to 1985.

Known for pushing the limits of current technology from the beginning, Colnago knew they had a different kind of bike and didn’t stop at the tube shape.

Though the science of measuring aerodynamics was still new to the bicycle industry, it didn’t stop Colnago from experimenting with frame features that are now common in any manufacturer's “aero” lineup. The reverse-seating of the brake calipers was an example of this forward-thinking attitude, (pun intended). Additionally, the down tube shifters were moved in closer together and cables were routed internally, to save that extra watt or two.

This Colnago has been completely serviced by our expert mechanics and has been set up nicely with a speed-hungry Campagnolo Super Record groupset. Some of the parts have also been pantographed by Colnago - a fine finishing touch for a very special bicycle.

Not only is this a bike for historians and collectors of beautiful racing machines, but it’s also more than fit to be taken off the wall and give you a feeling of the wind on your face.

Condition

Used.   The bicycle is in great condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original, sustained with a lovely patina. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! Parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in fantastic riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.

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.
