It’s almost confronting to come across a fat-tired Colnago, when we’re so used to considering them the king of luxurious road bikes. But I’m sure that in the early 90s, when Colnago introduced an entrant to the lucrative off-road bicycle market, it ignited the same passion among their fans as their road bikes.
Stephan Wijland is a vintage cycling enthusiast and collector from Rotterdam, Netherlands, who managed to acquire the ‘Nago MTB for use as a winter off-road bike. It’s in great condition for its age, its full Shimano Deore DX group set still functioning perfectly.
Colnago spotters will recognize the famous Columbus Gilco tubing, although the paint scheme should be familiar to even casual fans. Stephan has every amount of respect for the value of vintage bikes, but also realizes that they were born to be ridden and enjoyed.
