And to complicate further, not all Tecnos had crimped tubes. I have a round tube Tecnos, built from Tange tubing, owned from new. It's a '94, bought in '95 in the early season sale.

True! i've seen that model too, further complicates whether my frame is a tecnos, decor tecnos or decor. I've also seen bikes with the round tange tubing but badged simply 'decor' :lol:

Wasn't "Decor" the paint option - you could have plain (like mine) or "Decor" paint job, which tended to be a bit lary and non-plain!

Well yes and no ! I have seen a couple of decor badged models with distinctly basic paintjobs, not in the style of the 'art decor' models / option. That's why I'm no wiser as to the exact model of mine ! Not that i'll lose sleep over it though :lol:

Nah. All of mine are sublime rides. The Master X-Lite is silky smooth, but is actually one size too small. Longer stem etc on it, but I know...

The Tecnos is my main workhorse, has been for 17 years. Fits like a glove and still rides nicest of all the bikes

The CT2 is different - a lot stiffer with the carbon rear end and oversized Ti main triangle, yet not harsh. It's the race bike, so gets used least.

A frame nearly the same as yours is currently on ebay from the Netherlands....
could be a team frame / custom like yours?

Well spotted, it is indeed nigh on identical. Maybe a batch were made up in this colour (which Colnago didn't have a standard colour code for) for a bunch of riders in the Netherlands....

Good to see, far more than I paid for mine too :wink:

As the saying goes...'I'm glad that's too big for me!'...Or am I?
