Its a 1993 Colnago Super Piu frame refinished by Bob Jackson.

Dimensions are:

Top Tube 58cm c-c.

Down Tube: 58cm c-c. 59cm c-top.

Head Tube: 167mm.

It has a new pair of Mavic GP4s (the best version) on 1999 Record hubs (the best version) with Sapim Laser spoke front and rear, Record skewers. Built by Wheelsmith.co.uk in Scotland

Veloflex Criterium tubs. 1 spare tub as pictured.

Last version Record Alloy chainset (175mm).

Record BB.

1999 Record rear mech - the desirable carbon/alloy version.

1996 Record front mech - alloy version.

10sp "retrofitted" C-Record downtube levers.

10sp Chorus cassette.

Last version of C-Record Delta Brakes (the best version). Fitted with 1999 Record pads and holders. Originals with wheel locating lugs included if required.

C-Record brake levers to match.

Cinelli 120mm stem. Giro d'Italia bars 42cm.

C-Record 27.2mm seatpin.

Concor Saddle.

Ciussi Inox cages.

Everything is new, as-new or re-issue new or as-new. As the bike is right now, including the tubs etc, it's been used 3 times. It's absolutely immaculate.

Loads of changes can be made. Swap the wheels for something different? Rolls or Regal new saddles to change? I have Benotto tape?

The pedals are all that is not for sale.

Looking in the region of £1,500 for it.

PLEASE DO NOT ASK TO SPLIT - IT IS SOLD AS A COMPLETE BIKE.

Hi Craig - it's Columbus SL and originally had some chrome work around the head lugs and rear chain stays before being "buffed", primed and refinished.

The frame is surprisingly light but remains very comfy. It is not as uncompromising as a Master at slower speeds so would suit someone "not so fast" (like me).

I have training wheels for this; Ambrosio Nemesis clincher on 1996 Record silver 10sp hubs with ACI spokes which are brand new and Open Pro Ceramic on Ambrosio hubs with ACI spokes which have done about 500mls.

Take your choice!

PS: I find changing one's socks frequently prevents "lelobysfoot".

very very very very nice! I haven't seen a bike that nice for a while! And it's nearly my size, which makes it harder!

good luck with the sale!
