Classic Colnago frames are highly sought after for their vivaciuos paint schemes, and they look just as fast in a single colour. The Master Piu, a European-only model, sometimes appeared in rainbow transparente paint, but this Super Piu successor looks resplendent in rosso corsa.
Portugal’s Daniel Martins loves elaborately-painted racers; his Concorde Prelude that we featured recently is spectacular. When he found the Piu it was in a shocking state, deteriorated with rust. A trip to a local paint shop was in order, where it was coated with Italy’s national racing colour.
Daniel also maintains that an Italian frame only truly flies when matched with Campagnolo parts, so a Veloce gruppo was installed on the 1995 Columbus SL frame. Chorus Hubs laced to H Plus Son archetype rims and Veloflex Master Tires round out the build. Follow his rides on Strava.
