Few bicycles have influenced the cycling scene as much as the Colnago Super. At a time when racing bicycles were averagely heavy, with long wheelbases and flat angles, Ernesto Colnago released a frameset which would become a legend of cycling history and one of the top models of his 1970s and 1980s catalogues – the Super.
Made of Columbus SL steel tubes, with a shorter, stiffer and lighter frame, the Colnago Super was designed for high-performance. Since the launch, uncountable racing bicycles have been built with a geometry inspired by the Super.
This particular Colnago Super dates back to 1977 and has likely been repainted in the early 1980s in a pearly white. The bike underwent a complete service: parts have been checked and adjusted to make sure it works as fine as it did back in the day. Bar tape, cables, chain and tires are new.
Regarding the components, this Colnago Super is fully fitted with premium parts: a Campagnolo Nuovo Record Gruppo, Mavic rims, Cinelli bars and stem and a San Marco saddle
Approved for Eroica events worldwide.
