Here’s one I’ve been riding most frequently at the moment-my winter bike
Colnago Rabobank Lux Dream, Dura Ace 7700
I bought the frameset and group really cheap, and the guy I bought it off said it was Johnny Hoogerland’s. Given that the Tour was on at the time, and poor old Johnny had shredded his shorts, I took the vendor’s comments with a pinch of salt.
Then I found this site
with this image
The decal on the drive side fork has the same wear in each picture, could it be?
It rides beautifully, I usually ride old Italian steel, but this cracker I’ve ridden through the winter without worrying about rust or paint corrosion.
A future classic methinks.
Above post it’s first event with me on it-110km
rear derailleur jammed up twice, there was quite a bit of detritus on the road and bad rain at times, so maybe that’s why,
rectified itself though, and was comfortable for the sub 4 hours it took.
Cleat screws disappeared, so when I stopped, my foot got stuck and I made like Mr Bean and keeled over sideways.
facelift with Flite saddle and Chris King headset donated from bikes I traded,
crank set, rd, and shifters were also changed,
bar tape temporary!
The frame was always too big, so when I got a chance to get one in my size from an ex Rabobank under 23 team member , I snapped it up, and sold the old frameset
The ‘new’ one has a Rabobank team decal with the riders name on it..
first pictures of the new version…
just on a test ride with beater wheels..
I have some WH 7701 wheels, and I think I’ll add a longer stem to get the same geo as my C50,I like the old bar tape, it just gets so grubby!
