Colnago Master X


The Colnago Master X:

First pro­duced in the mid-1980s, the Master is a peren­nial favourite. It is the fruit of Colnago”™s exten­sive expe­ri­ence in steel tub­ing, weld­ing, and lugged frame con­struc­tion tech­niques. It”™s entirely designed, made and chromium plated in Italy with DT15V steel. The Master offers supreme com­fort thanks to the ride qual­ity offered by the cus­tom drawn steel tub­ing. The star-shaped tubes and chromed lugs com­bined with a 1-inch chrome plated steel Precisa fork make it a clas­sic and truly ele­gant bicy­cle that offers a ride unlike any­thing 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.
