Doctor….OK, when did your addiction to Colnago start, please take your time

Patient…..Well, Doc, it all started with the C40

Doctor…..Carry on

Patient……It was on a beautiful summers day, in a small village outside Genova

Doctor…..Calm down, clam down

Patient…. Well, that’s when it started. I spotted a gorgeous C40 outside a restaurant

Doctor……Take your time, memory recall can be traumatic stuff!

Patient……Well Doc, I was hooked from the moment I clapped eyes on it…….. I knew there was no turning back.!  

Doctor……Have you had many sleepless nights from that initial encounter?

Patient……Yes, yes, I just keep reliving it…the beautiful feminine curves of that breathtaking carbon body!

Doctor….. I’m afraid its incurable!

Patient……That’s what I thought 🙂

That’s how it pretty much started for me. Seeing that Colnago C40 for the very first time all those years ago made my heart melt. At the time, I didn’t realise just how iconic this frame was, but I just had this gut feeling that it was something quite special.

At the time, the Colnago C40 ( C for Carbon & 40 for the age of Colnago) had the reputation as one of the best frames in the world. The C40 has won everything from the Paris Robaix to the mountain stages in the Tour. It respectfully earned the title ‘ the most versatile bike in the pro peleton’.

It’s still one of the most admired and sort after frames within the Colnago back catalogue and has a spacial place within many a Colnago enthusiasts heart!
