We took another vintage Colnago frame as an outstanding base and added modern components to blast this bike into the future, while also keeping notes of nostalgia on the build.
The Gilco formulation of Columbus steel was a high-point for frame-building, but the vintage drivetrain of the era left much to be desired. We built up a vintage Colnago Master frame with an assortment of carbon fiber trim and modern components to keep the performance high, and the price down low. A few tricks are required to make the adaptation, but well worth the entry fee.
Much of our conversation is spent on the topic of the newly released issue #138, but we also briefly mention UPS e-bikes, the mountain bike race through Cuba, Stig Brockx wakes up from a coma, and Colnago helps China get to the WorldTour.
