Up for auction is an as-new, recently built-up 2012 Colnago Master X-Light Saronni Color 57cm frameset with Brand new Campagnolo 11 components! Total mileage on frameset / components / wheels is not up to 200 miles. Mint condition, shows as-new. 95% of the bike is Italian componentry. For those who swap out the bars and stem, you’ll be at 100%! J
Includes 2016 Campagnolo Potenza silver 11-speed groupset. Wheels are Ambrosio Excellence rims built up with the gorgeous Silver Campagnolo record hubs. Beautiful Campagnolo polished titanium seatpost. Additional components are top of the line and a great fit for this Brand new Classic! It rides beautifully and is a joy to ride! It’s super comfortable, responsive, fast, fun…and naturally stunning! Comes with the brand new Campy 12-32 cassette, which is an ideal match for this build. Combined with the 34-50 compact crankset, this is superb gearing for the hills. As seen within the photos, there is quite a lot of steerer tube length to work with for sizing purposes (50mm below stem, 20mm above). I would expect this bike to suit somebody within the 5’9 to 6’1 range, but please check the Colnago geometry / site to confirm.
Complete bike as shown has not up to 200 miles on it. I’m selling since I’ve too many bikes; new addition to the circle of relatives; and not enough time to ride. But even so, I like taking on projects for highly desirable frames or bikes (building them as much as perfection) and having others enjoy. This highly desirable Colnago Saronni red frameset is a classic and rides like a timeless classic! Overall msrp for all of the components and pieces would be over $5000, so pick up an excellent deal (and a huge time savings) lately!
§ 2017 – Built the bike up as seen, with great attention to detail. Each piece used to be examined to find that “very best part”.
§ 2016 – I purchased the frameset from the original owner.
§ 2012 – Frameset used to be purchased new by a bike shop owner; never built-up.
