I love this bike..!

When we were on holiday in Cornwall in 2000, I broke a spoke on my road bike so went to Rikki Cycles to get a new one... well, let's jusst say I ended up spending a bit more than I thought...

Luckily my wife was with me at the time and she knew that I had always hankered after a Colnago, so what with the sunny weather, broken spoke and us both being in a 'holiday mood', the purchase was quickly sanctioned!!

The bike hasn't seen much use in the past 12 years as it has been hung on the wall as a piece of 'modern art'. It's a pity really as it really does ride well, but too many bikes, not enough time etc.

Wow, if I bought it I too would have to display it and I'm not sure I could talk my way in to that.
Beautiful machine.

Yes, they are supposed to be the shape of the Colnago badge I think.
