My 3 little ladies... One in middle is being resprayed currently, after 16 years of use from new. The Master X-Lite on LHS is going to be stripped and the frame sold, so I can replace it with one in the right size. I thought I could make the smaller size fit, but it's always felt a little small when riding it. As you can see, the handlebars come up very low compared to the other two bikes. Other than that I got it pretty close.


Hi,

Three nice rides there, I was just wondering the bar extensions that you have on the middle Colnago are they still on the market?

I know they were popular in the mid 90's before the UCI banned them as the pros that used them were having accidents in the bunches with them. I'm in the process of building up my distance on the bike again and it would just be nice sometimes to have an extra position. I've had a quick scout around but can't seem to find any.

Thanks :)

I can't see clearly but guess they are Cinelli Spinacci and they are pretty cheap on eBay - here's a pair (not mine!) for £11 posted

They are indeed Cinelli Spinaci extensions. I like them. i put them on the CT2 for hilly TTs / Tris as well as they provide additional climbing positions.

Try that with some obscure master-builder! Take for example the Marastoni bike I have offered up in this month's RBotM; I can assure you that it is superior in every way to any Colnago that I have ever owned: in ride, in geometry, in workmanship, in finish... however put it in front of people without serious knowledge and it will pass almost unnoticed, just the opposite of a Colnago.


sure?
you are talking about the most winning cycling brand in the world......is it only an occurrance?
this only a sample of a colnago model genesis(c40) [url]http://www.mariocamilotto.com/

this is only a sample on the genesis of a colnago model,the c40...[url]http://www.mariocamilotto.com/
in the steel era,colnago had several subcontractors who worked for him,like mario rossin,spezzotto and may others famous frame builders...

if you don't see the value doesn't matter,there is the cycling history that speak very well,along with the ride quality of all the colnago models.
you can see the value of a man and of his brand by his collaborators,last but not the least mr Mario Camilotto......
Marastoni.....who??http://www.mariocamilotto.com/
