A few more pics of a masterpiece. Understated, sophisticated and elegant. Ernesto made many flamboyant bicycles over the years, this is not one of them.

Wow! That looks as close to perfect as it's possible to get!

That is wonderful, I only ride geared as I don't have the space for more than one bike at a time but I still can't shake the sheer beauty of a pista bike, nothing ancillary to to muddy the lines of the design

Yes, I agree. It's the purity that I think is lovely. I'll never ride this bike ( all my Colnagos are artwork now), and the few track bikes I have ridden basically scared me stiff.
I've just acquired some postcards showing track riders/bikes/velodromes C1904. Those guys were heroes I think, and that period I find fascinating. My Bodelet ( on another post) is probably my favourite bike at the moment, particularly when I look at the images of track cycling from that time.
