I bought this pretty rare Colnago MTB on the forum a few weeks ago at a very fair price including its original XT groupset. Frame dates from 1990 and is, of course, in steel. I had it powder coated and treated it to new decals and built wheels onto the lovely XT hubs. So here it is ready for its first ride but I have a confession......I have spent 50 years riding road bikes and never even tried a MTB! I own several ‘proper’ bikes including three beautiful Colnagos but I am really looking forward to trying the dark side of cycling. Wish me luck.......

Welcome to the dark side. Very nice first mtb!
Enjoy... and don't run road pressures in your tyres or you will struggle a bit for grip.

Happy to share close ups but of what? Compared to my carbon and titanium road bikes it is a tank! Weighs about the same as my steel touring bike which is not a surprise.
