I bought this in Belgium, got the train from Amsterdam to collect
A ’90’s Colnago steel MTB
I wanted something fairly low key for around town,
so I customized this
The original decals were in poor condition, and the font not really for me,
so I stripped them all off, and put a Colnago decal on the headtube
I built the wheels with Rigida DP 22 rims, and a shorter cage Shimano rear derailleur.
I changed the stem for a Cinelli and added some short reach Campagnolo brake lever and V calipers.
I put schwalbe Kojak 26×2.0 tyres on, which is great as you don’t get caught in tram line when you’re drunk.
I call it my ‘Hood Whip’
The decor is a marble finish, similar to my Spiral Conic
Had plenty of fun on it last summer, now I’ll sell….a new ‘Hood Whip’ build beckons…..
Norman, the new owner was kind enough to send me a picture of his renovation…
