Colnago Maaaaaaaaaaaaassssstttteeerrrrrrr!!!Carbon fiber forks are the best. I like it when they clear coat the carbon fiber or paint them black like on my same-vintage Colnago from 2000, but a made in SLC USA Wound Up with matching colors will do fine. View attachment 1646984
Colnago is famous for their paint jobs. This bike has a little sprinter dude on the top tube for inspiration.

This is the bike I'm putting the most miles on these days though. Compact gears (49/35 vs. 53/39 to a 28 in the back) make even the steepest hills here doable for me, even at 250+ lbs. Bike shops are busy places these days - look at all the new arrivals still boxed up in the back of this pic. I got a new chain and tune-up and had to book a week in advance.

Cheezus!!One last post on this $140 Goodwill find from a couple of days ago, before I give it to my son. I chipped all the noisy stickers off the frame with my thumbnails so as not to scratch the paint, then washed with Meguairs car wash soap and cleaned the gears with Pedro's chain cleaner. Vote for Pedro. Also ordered some genyuwine Campagnolo rubber brake hoods from the Bay, since these ones are chewed up on the tops. This frame is titanium and the parts are a full Campy Record 9 speed group from twenty years ago.

Apparently the frame builder is well known around Philadelphia, where this bike was built back in 1999.

It hits all the gears, but I'm still going to have my shop fine tune it and make sure the hubs and whatnot are lubed.

Coincidentally I have a same-vintage Colnago Ovalmaster titanium bike I bought in 2000 while I was in Italy on a very challenging cycling trip with Andy Hampsten's Cinghiale Tours. The thrifted bike has better gears though! (Record vs. Chorus)
@carreragt7I went down a converse rabbit hole back when I found those deadstock size 14/17s a year or two back. That logo set up is right around 1980s, advertised heavily with the “official sponsor of the 84 olympics” stuff. The copyright dates of ads and on boxes were 81 and 82 that I saw.
Not saying Rumpy is incorrect, but I’d love to hear more on why the 70s. @Rumpelstiltskin care to expound? I’ll dig up the screenshots I took back then. This is the sort of thing that I love, finding something and then researching the shit out of it. Haha.
EDIT: but yeah, that insole throws me off as I haven’t seen it much. @impuntura
well on the mend, just trying to take it easy. delayed and split up my trip back to fl, but was rewarded by the universe for giving myself more rest time — kopped in an area I would’ve usually driven right past.
