Is the Colnago considered one of the best in Italian bikes ? Any insight welcome.

Colnago has a clear place in the "golden age" of top tier italian race bikes from the 1970's. There were so many fabulous italian marques. Bianchi, Cinelli, Legnano, DeRosa, Masi (US or italian) and others can all claim to be "one of the best" depending on the timeframe. Personally, I think Bianchi has put out the finest product over the longest period of time.

Bianchi certainly wins on longevity, total production, and perhaps even total Tour de France wins over the years. As a Bianchi owner, I would like to concur with Warren's vote, but most afficionados would rank Cinelli, DeRosa, Colnago, and Masi higher.

Wow...looks like serious track iron. Look at the geometry. No rake and steep headtube. Front tire just brushes the downtube and it doesn't look like an accident. That bike is likely set up for motorpacing behind a derny. Can you imagine sliding the bars out to the end of the stem. Your nose would be over the front hub.

I dont't think there's a blue book on a bike like that. I suspect it's worth at least a grand to a specialized collector. Maybe lots more in Germany.

What is Columbus "foil" frame tubing, when was it popular. And would it compare to 531 tubing as far as durability.

I am restoring a 1974 Paramount, and need to find a replacement part described in the Campy catalog as a "dual derailer cable guide." Any suggestions on likely places to track down something of that vintage and type?
