This is a charming example of the finest steel tubed road frame and forks produced since the 1980s by prestigious Italian manufacturer Colnago. Needless to say, we have built it up with an appropriate ensemble of high end Italian components, the 10-speed Record gruppo of course from Campagnolo. Frankly, a frame and fork of this very high calibre ought never to be encumbered with components from the far East. To do so would detract from the obvious fact that every Colnago Master Olympic is a proud celebration of the very best of Italian hand manufacture.

The Frame

The distinctive Columbus Gilco Design tubing, crimped for increased rigidity, is joined by beautiful lugs, which are chromed at the head tube. The straight bladed Master fork provides pleasingly precise directional control. The colour scheme of this particular frame is actually quite reserved in comparison to most examples of the typically much more colourful Master Olympic breed. The basic colour is black, with white as a background colour for the largest Colnago lettering either side of the down tube and seat tube. This, being an Art Decor model, sports a painstakingly airbrushed rider motif on the front upper face of the top tube, plus a full compliment of tattoo-come-flame embellishments, and neon faded accents to draw the eye toward those exquisite head lugs.

The Setup

Every Master Olympic is emblazoned with Ernesto Colnago’s signature at the rear drive side of the top tube, but this road racer is further enhanced with pantographed signatures either side of the black anodised 3ttt aero stem, which grips matching Forma SL ergonomic drop handlebars. The next proud owner will enjoy every fast ride from upon a comfortably deeply flanked, stylish and fairly uncommon Titanio 200 saddle in black leather. They’ll be cruising at high velocity on a pair of low profile Campagnolo Nucleon wheels, with bladed spokes front and rear, laced radially at the front. Impressive traction and low rolling resistance comes courtesy of Vittoria Corsa Graphene 2.0 tyres, with pale sidewalls for a traditional aesthetic. Bellissimo!
