Colnago Nuovo Mexico circa ‘85

Colnago Nuovo Mexico mk 2

This is a late example of the legendary Colnago Nuovo Mexico frame set

Has Colnago stamp on the top of the bottom bracket shell …

And rounded Colnago stamped seat stay caps , which post date the first circa ’84 Nuovo Mexico ( flat stamped stay caps )

And the iconic 4 ribbed down tube ….

I source a Campagnolo Rally Triple crank set , as I intended to use the bike on the hills in Chianti , at L’ Eroica Gaiole …

And later found a near mint 2 nd generation Campagnolo Rally Triple rear derailleur …

Bottle cage is Specialities TA , with a white cap …

I used a Concor saddle and high flange hubs on the wheelset

The bike performed really well at Gaiole , with the triple crank set , I didn’t have to walk up any inclines
