The Colnago Master X:
First proÂduced in the mid-1980s, the Master is a perenÂnial favourite. It is the fruit of Colnago”™s extenÂsive expeÂriÂence in steel tubÂing, weldÂing, and lugged frame conÂstrucÂtion techÂniques. It”™s entirely designed, made and chromium plated in Italy with DT15V steel. The Master offers supreme comÂfort thanks to the ride qualÂity offered by the cusÂtom drawn steel tubÂing. The star-shaped tubes and chromed lugs comÂbined with a 1-inch chrome plated steel Precisa fork make it a clasÂsic and truly eleÂgant bicyÂcle that offers a ride unlike anyÂthing else.
My local bike shop, sadly, is closing its doors soon. And the owner wants to clear as much of the inventory as possible. As a result, I was able to get an incredible deal on a 30th Anniversary Master X-light Frameset. This one:
It will take me a bit of time to select the components and then build the machine out. My plan is to have it ready to go for Spring of 2016.
When completed, I will have satisfied Rule #12:
Rule #12 // The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
While the minimum number of bikes one should own is three, the correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.
